Prince Harry appointed Honorary President of England Rugby 2015

With one year to go to the event, Prince Harry will now play an important role in welcoming the 20 qualifying nations to Rugby World Cup 2015.

Prince Harry is a keen Rugby fan and serves as Vice Patron of the Rugby Football Union (RFU).

To mark the one year to go milestone, Prince Harry took part in an exclusive photo shoot with Rugby World Cup 2003 winner and England Rugby 2015 Ambassador Jonny Wilkinson.

"With one year to go to the tournament, we are delighted to announce that Prince Harry has agreed to be our Honorary President," said England Rugby 2015 CEO Debbie Jevans.

"The Prince is a great Rugby fan and recently inspired us all with the Invictus Games.

"We have no doubt that he will help us achieve our aim of staging a tournament that reaches out to new and existing Rugby fans."

Tickets are currently on sale and fans will find out which tickets they have successfully applied for in October 2014. Any remaining tickets will go back on sale in November 2014.
