The Prince William Cup was created in 2007 by the Welsh Rugby Union and celebrates 100 years of rugby union history between Wales and South Africa. It is named after the Vice Royal Patron of the WRU, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, who presented the cup, amid much booing from the Millennium Stadium crowd, to the inaugural winners of the trophy in the inaugural Prince William Cup match held at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday 24 November 2007.

Famous quotes containing the words cup and/or prince:
“I write mainly for the kindly race of women. I am their sister, and in no way exempt from their sorrowful lot. I have drank [sic] the cup of their limitations to the dregs, and if my experience can help any sad or doubtful woman to outleap her own shadow, and to stand bravely out in the sunshine to meet her destiny, whatever it may be, I shall have done well; I have not written this book in vain.”
—Amelia E. Barr (18311919)
“Theres kind of a Sleeping Beauty magic about the kid. I thought Id done something toward breaking the spell. Seems not. Prince Charmless, thats me.”
—Dodie Smith, and Lewis Allen. Roderick Fitzgerald (Ray Milland)
