London, Oct. 28 (Jiji Press)--Britain's Prince Harry will visit Japan to watch England face South Africa in the Rugby World Cup final in Yokohama, near Tokyo, on Saturday, Buckingham Palace said Monday.

In a post on his official Instagram account, the Duke of Sussex sent his congratulations on the victory of England over New Zealand, the 2015 Rugby World Cup champion, in last week's semifinal in Yokohama.

"Wow, what a game of rugby! Another fantastic performance from our boys. Well done lads! You are making us all incredibly proud back home--bring on next week!" the post said.

His wife, Duchess Meghan Markle, and the son, Archie, will not visit Japan.

Prince Harry, a rugby enthusiast, is patron of England's Rugby Football Union. He presented the Webb Ellis Cup to New Zealand in the 2015 World Cup in England.
