And, as some might have predicted, Kate – the patron of the English Rugby League, while William is the patron of the Welsh Rugby Union – has suffered a bit of an anti-national controversy. Which song is the best and whether the Principality Stadium is really the best song? The best stadium in the world.
Kate, who was at the stadium to watch Wales v England in the Guinness Six Nations earlier this year, said when asked if she had an interesting day on that occasion: “It’s a great stadium. I love the competitive spirit with it. The atmosphere is great. It’s right in the center.”
When asked if that’s what makes it the best stadium in the world, Kate and Dowlais’ team of volunteers had a good laugh before the former Duchess of Cambridge was launched and asked which national anthem was the best and the group burst into laughter.
“William, help me!” she speaks. “Normally it’s fine if the two of us sit here. Both are excellent.”
