The team is playing South Africa in the match, which is held in Japan this year. Prince Harry is in attendance, and so is Zara Tindall's retired rugby player husband, Mike. Sarah's followers were quick to agree with her sentiment, commenting: "Very best of luck to our boys," "Good luck from Holland," and: "C'mon England. I'm watching in Australia."

Princess Eugenie also shared her appreciation for the team, posting two photos: one showing the team lined up before the match, and the second a close-up of the embroidered red rose on one of the player's shirts. She captioned the photos: "Good Luck England!! Very proud to cheer on this incredible team! @englandrugby."
