The Rugby Football League (RFL) have confirmed that HRH The Duke of Sussex, better known as Prince Harry, will present the Coral Challenge Cup final trophy on Saturday 24th August as Chief Guest.
HRH The Duke of Sussex has been the patron of the RFL since late 2016 when he replaced his grandmother Her Majesty The Queen in the role.
Simon Johnson, Interim Chair of the Rugby Football League, said: “The Rugby League Challenge Cup Final is established as a special and historic day in the British sporting calendar. It was first contested in 1897, and first staged at Wembley Stadium in 1929 – and we are delighted and honoured that The Duke of Sussex will be attending in his role as Patron of the Rugby Football League. We hope His Royal Highness will enjoy seeing the two current best teams in front of a passionate and colourful crowd at Rugby League’s showpiece event.”
The 2019 Coral Challenge Cup final is the first time ever that Warrington Wolves and St Helens have faced off at the showpiece occasion and the Wire will be keen to avenge their final defeat last season at the hands of Catalans Dragons. St Helens, meanwhile, are making their first appearance at Wembley since 2008 when a 21-year-old James Roby scored the first Challenge Cup try at the stadium since it’s rebuild.
