Prince Harry joined Mzansi on Saturday afternoon in toasting the Springboks after their resounding victory against England in the Rugby World Cup Final in Yokohama, Japan
The entire nation has been in celebratory mode as the Boks clinched their third Webb Ellis Cup when they beat England 32 -12.
It was a historic moment for the country and for Siya Kolisi who goes down as the first black captain of the Boks to lead the team to world cup victory.
Even though England lost to our boys, Prince Harry definitely wasn’t a sour loser and even joined the team for a victory drink in the locker room.
Video footage of Harry sharing a cold one with the boys went viral on social media as tweeps applauded him for the gesture.
“I can’t think of a nation that needs it more than you guys right now,” Prince Harry told the Springbok squad.
“We are so grateful to the people of South Africa. We have so many problems in our country but a team like this, we come from different backgrounds, different races but we came together with one goal and we wanted to achieve it.
“I really hope we’ve done that for South Africa. Just shows that we can pull together if we want to achieve something,” Sport 24 quoted Siya as saying.

Meanwhile the Boks’ ‘giant slayer’ and scrumhalf Faf de Klerk also stole the show and added some light to the occasion when he met Prince Harry in his South African flag speedo
Snaps of Faf and his speedo went viral on Sunday as tweeps could not get enough of how cheeky he was and did not care for ‘royal protocol’.
Some social media users labelled the moment as the best thing to happen in 2019 so far.
