England meets South Africa in the first game of the tournament and while the organizers submitted the precise plans for Friday, Harry will be present to mark the start of the World Cup before an initial ball is thrown into rage.

Organizers have chosen to give the World Cup a distinct royal feel because they have already chosen to organize the opening party for Buckingham Palace at The Mall.

However, the opening party did not have the warmest reception on Wednesday evening.

There were around 4,000 fans sheltered under waterproof ponchos and umbrellas while watching a fairly quiet presentation of captains and a performance of the official song.

Technical malfunctions also impeded the procedure.
