Kate replaces Harry as rugby patron

The Duchess of Cambridge has been made the patron of Rugby League and Rugby Union. The Queen has passed on the duties, which were once held by the Duke of Sussex, as they closely align with her passion for sport. Kate's appointment is the first of the royal patronages that were once held by Harry to be passed on since the Sussex’s stepped down from their official royal duties in 2020.
