Prince Harry

Prince Harry

Britain's Prince Harry trained with a former England rugby star earlier today (16.10.13).

The flame-haired royal - who is a qualified rugby coach and a big fan of the national side - took to the famous pitch at their Twickenham home in west London, and impressed World Cup winner Jason Robinson with his skills.

The former England star told him: "We're looking for a winger. I'll be looking to see what you've got."

But the 29-year-old prince replied: "I think I'm a bit past it already."

Robinson and Harry teamed up to help coach youngsters from state schools taking part in the Rugby Football Union (RFU) All Schools Programme, which included students from Kevin Hall school in Hull, north east England.

Prior to the training session, the education facility's Head of PE, James Clark, told the Hull Daily Mail newspaper: "I'm really looking forward to it. It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance," said their head of PE James Clark.

"The girls are really excited. They were even more excited when they found out who they were going to meet."

Harry is a regular visitor to Twickenham to watch the England national side.
