New Zealand appears to have won an early psychological war over Australia with Princes Harry and William and Duchess Kate set to watch the World Cup final in the New Zealand box at London's Twickenham Stadium tomorrow morning.

Steve Tew, the boss of New Zealand Rugby, did his best to keep secret which celebrity guests had accepted invitations to the Kiwi box but was goaded into hinting the All Blacks had secured a royal trifecta in an interview with Newstalk ZB sports host Tony Veitch.

"There's a couple of things you are not allowed to talk about in the lead-up to a Rugby World Cup final and one of them is 'how many royals are in your box?', and I know the answer to that question (but) if I tell you I'll have to shoot you," Tew said jokingly.

Veitch then asked him if we would prefer William and Kate over rugby-mad Prince Harry.

"Without wanting to take your life early, Tony, we might end up with both of them," he replied. "I'm just speculating. We had Granddad (Prince Philip) there last week."
