William was seen in a smart blue suit with a red and white tie – which appears to be a way of showing support for Wales.

George was wearing the same clothes and the young man was looking around.

Williams sat with World Rugby chairman Sir Bill Beaumont.

One image shows the pair looking delighted as they chat to the Prince of Wales.

However, it remains to be seen whether he still has a smile on his face by the end of the match.

Wales are hoping to make the semi-finals for the third consecutive tournament, having previously done so in the last competition in Japan in 2019 and before that in England four years ago.

And it has certainly been a positive campaign from Warren Gatland so far.

Wales raised their hopes of glory with a hard-fought victory over Fiji on 10 September.

After this they defeated Portugal 28-8.

The real test of his ability came on 24 September when Wales faced Eddie Jones against Australia.

But Gatland’s team were no match for the Australians, with the Dragons defeating them 40–6, all but ending their hopes of glory.

Wales made it four wins from four with a 43–19 win over Georgia last time out.

As for Argentina, George Ford’s team, weakened by Steve Borthwick’s kicking, lost to England in their opening match.

However, since then they have managed to achieve three consecutive wins.

Argentina defeated Samoa 19–10 and then defeated Chile 59–5.

However, their most impressive result came against Japan last weekend.

Argentina won 39–27 to set up a blockbuster clash with Wales, with coach Michael Cheika thrilled with his team’s performance.

Speaking before the match in France, Gatland said it would be a ‘huge achievement’ to reach the semi-finals again.

“This will be our third semi-final and then in 2015 we were ahead of South Africa for 75 minutes (in the quarter-finals) and lost in the end,” he said.

“Considering that, we would be very proud.

“I’ve always talked about how much I’ve enjoyed preparing for the World Cup.

“It’s the only time you feel like you’re a club side meeting that description. You feel like you’ve made a huge amount of progress.

“After all the challenges during the Six Nations, with the potential (player) strike and the contracts and money with the union (Welsh Rugby Union) and the regions, as coaches we’ll be joking about what’s next, what’s the next thing on us. Thrown?

“I definitely think there’s a line in the sand drawn underneath it. If we could get to the semi-finals it would be a huge accomplishment for this group of players and coaches who have done a great job, and the backroom staff. Was excellent.

“I know there are some people and some teams who won’t want to face a Wales team when they start playing with confidence and when we start to get some momentum.

“That’s when we’re in the most dangerous position. We’re starting to look at that right now.”
