Prince Harry has become the vice-patron of England's Rugby Football Union.

He's also become patron of it's Injured Players' Foundation.

Prince Harry and his brother William met servicemen who had been injured in Afghanistan before England's opening match of the Six Nations against Wales at Twickenham.

RFU president John Owen said he hoped the Prince would help with England's bid to host the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
