Kurtley Beale’s Instagram post goes viral after funny picture with Prince William

The Duke of Cambridge is no stranger to a photo op. But even the royal looked amused to be posing next to Australia’s Kurtley Beale as the rugby star sported only a pair of budgie smugglers.

After witnessing the Wallabies beat Wales 29-21 in Cardiff on Saturday, the Duke was invited into the Australian changing rooms to meet the players.


While a number of the players took the chance for a photo with the special guest, it was Beale’s picture that lit up social media on Monday, receiving over 14,000 likes.

Wales flanker Josh Navidi also posted a witty tweet after he was caught off guard and half naked by royalty in the Wales dressing room.

He posted along with the photo: “Note-to-self: when meeting the future king, appropriate attire should be worn.”
