PRINCE Harry shared a beer with South Africa rugby heroes after they convincingly beat England in the World Cup final.
The Duke of Sussex, 35, joined the Springboks in their dressing room after watching their 32-12 win at Japan’s Yokohama stadium.
Rugby fan Harry was seen joking with the thrilled winners, who washed down their victory with a few well-deserved beers.
The Duke seemed relaxed and smiling as he shook their hands – despite the brutal defeat.
Harry had delivered a personal message from the Queen to England’s men ahead of the match at the 72,300 capacity stadium, but it failed to lift them to victory.
Millions of fans across the country were left hanging their heads in despair after getting up at the crack of dawn to cheer on their sporting heroes – only to witness a somewhat substandard performance.
The Duke had lent his backing to England throughout their campaign – even sending a photo of his son Archie in a Red Rose jersey.
The Duke was pictured chatting to Japan’s Prime Minister before watching as England quickly fell behind and never recovered.
The Royal Family tweeted after the match: “A great effort by England in reaching the World Cup Final 2019 and congratulations to South Africa on winning a hard fought game.”
