Who knew the royal family was full of athletes??!

Not to be outdone by his brother, Prince Harry made his way to Twickenham to promote the Rugby Football Union's All Schools programme, which looks to bring rugby to 750 schools as England prepares to host the World Cup in 2015!

The royal rebel is known to dabble in sports from time to time, so he had no problem keeping up with the kiddies as he ran them through drills and showed off some of his own skills!

However, he wasn't alone as England's World Cup winner Jason Robinson was also on hand, and he did NOT go easy on the prince!!

Harry definitely looked winded after his long day on the field as he made his way home drenched in sweat!

But the important thing is that he had some fun! Oh, and he also didn't get hurt! That's pretty important too!

Ch-ch-check out more photos of Harry showing off his rugby skills (below)!

18-Year-Old Rugby Player Dies After Taking Poisonous Diet Pill

teenage rugby player dies after taking toxic diet pills

So sad!

18-year-old rugby player Chris Mapletoft died recently after he took a diet pill that turned out to be poisonous.

The teenager out of Twickenham, London purchased 2,4-dinitrophenol (also known as DNP) online in hopes to shed a few pounds, but the chemical turned out to be too toxic for human consumption. The same chemical is known to be used in pesticides.

Chris's father David Mapletoft was with him when he said he began feeling nauseous and started showing fever-like symptoms. He called an ambulance once Chris began having difficulty breathing, but by the time it arrived he had already died.

David and his wife Lesley Mapletoft had no idea their son was taking the pill, and they are outraged that something so dangerous was so easily available online:
