Prince Harry’s solo trip to Japan is off to a great start so far.

Putting in an appearance to watch England play against South Africa, Prince Harry was photographed at the International Stadium in Yokohama, Japan on Saturday. Despite his team being defeated, Harry appeared to be happy, and was seen sitting with Japan’s Fumihito, Crown Prince Akishino, and his wife Kiko, Crown Princess Akishino.

The Daily Mail noted that Harry also spent time with Albert II, Prince of Monaco, at the sporting event.

Following England’s loss, Prince Harry met with South Africa’s players in the locker room, and posed for photos. The duke was extremely gracious about his team’s loss and appeared to be joking around with the winners.

The @SussexRoyal Instagram account posted a personal message from Harry after the game. It said,

“Tonight was not England’s night, but the whole nation is incredibly proud of what @EnglandRugby have achieved over the past few months. Hold your heads high boys, you did an outstanding job and we couldn’t have asked more from you.

To the whole of South Africa — rugby unites all of us in more ways than we can imagine, and tonight I have no doubt that it will unite all of you.

After last months visit, I can’t think of a nation that deserves it more. Well done and enjoy! Arigatu gozaimasu Nihon 🇯🇵.”
