The Duke of Sussex has made his first appearance for royal duties since his and Meghan’s announcement of plans to ditch their Royal duties.
The Prince is set to host the Rugby League World Cup 2021 draw that will take place at Buckingham Palace on Thursday morning.
This comes three days after the Duke and The Queen had talks to resolve the issue. That same day, the queen released a press statement explaining that she would step back on the couple’s decision to be financially independent and to live both in Canada and the UK.
Meghan flew to Canada to be with their son Archie days before the meeting. On Tuesday the Duchess engaged in some philanthropic activity in Vancouver when she visited Justice for Girls to speak about rights for indigenous people.
Before the draw, the Duke who is the patron of the Rugby Football League since December 2016 will watch children from a local school play rugby in the palace gardens.
There are however unconfirmed claims that the Duke will leave for Canada immediately after the draw.
The world cup tournament runs from 23 October to 27 November 2021 in 17 cities in England, with 16 men’s, eight women’s and eight wheelchair teams taking part.
