The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are at Twickenham Stadium with 82,000 fans watching England go head to head with Fiji.
A bearded Prince Harry, who is rumoured to have rekindled his romance with ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas, is also in attendance.
He gave a speech ahead of the match in his role as honorary president of England Rugby 2015.
The fifth in line to the throne referenced Nelson Mandela and that 2003 drop kick.
He said: “Rugby has changed dramatically in my lifetime. But it remains a game founded on a code of values.
“Values which are as important today, both on and off the field of play, as they have ever been.
“Across the country, regardless of age, background or beliefs; this nation, which gave rugby to the world in 1823, will join together and celebrate the game like never before.
“In six weeks’ time, one team will take its place in history. It’s up to every one of us, to raise the roof on each match in this unforgettable journey.
“The players have earned it, the Nations deserve it and the fans expect it.”
Mayor of London Boris Johnson and David Cameron were also in attendance.
