South Africa beat Wales last Sunday to set up a thrilling showdown in Yokohama.

After England’s semi-final defeat of the All Blacks on Saturday, Harry posted a personal message on his SussexRoyal Instagram site.

The message appeared alongside two pictures of the team and a more official statement.

The caption read: Today the England rugby team beat the New Zealand All Blacks to reach the final of the Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan.

HRH The Duke of Sussex is patron of the Rugby Football Union @englandrugby and like most rugby fans this morning, was thrilled to be able to witness such an amazing display of sportsmanship between two great teams.

Prince Harry then added in his brief message: Wow, what a game of rugby! Another fantastic performance from our boys. Well done lads!

You are making us all incredibly proud back home – bring on next week! and signed off ‘The Duke of Sussex.

PM Boris Johnson also hopes to travel to Japan for the final but it depends on events in Parliament this week.
