Duke of Cambridge presents Wales World Cup shirts

Wales' World Cup squad greeted a Royal visitor at their hotel in Surrey on Friday.

The Duke of Cambridge, who is Royal Vice Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union, presented the players with their shirts ahead of Saturday's World Cup Pool A decider against Australia at Twickenham.

The WRU tweeted a group picture of players with the Duke, who was flanked by forwards Paul James and Ross Moriarty.

" Huge honour for squad to receive their match jerseys from HRH The Duke of Cambridge this afternoon @KensingtonRoyal" read the WRU's accompanying tweet.

Wales will win their group if they defeat Australia, and book a quarter-final clash against Scotland or Japan. But if they lose, a last-eight appointment awaits with twice world champions South Africa.

Earlier in the tournament, singer Tom Jones presented the Wales team shirts, while the players have also spent time with former undefeated boxing world champion Joe Calzaghe.
