Prince Harry to present Rugby World Cup trophy to winners

Prince Harry will present the Webb Ellis Cup to the Rugby World Cup winners at Twickenham on Saturday.

England Rugby 2015 announced that he will present the trophy following the final between New Zealand and Australia.

Prince Harry is the honorary president of England Rugby 2015, and he spoke in that role during the tournament's opening ceremony 40 days ago.

New Zealand and Australia will play each other for the first time in rugby union's biggest showpiece occasion.

The All Blacks are aiming to become the first country in World Cup history to retain the title after winning the trophy in New Zealand four years ago.
