Prince William visited the England women’s football team yesterday (June 15) ahead of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022, which takes place this summer.

To commemorate his visit, the team presented the Duke of Cambridge with three adorable Cambridge Children’s Football Shirts. Each shirt has been personalized with their name on the back and their age. Prince Louis is four, Princess Charlotte seven and Prince George eight.

The Duke joined the Lionesses at the National Football Center in St George’s Park to meet the team and learn more about their preparation for the upcoming event.

In footage from his visit, Prince William is seen chatting with the team and revealed that one of his own children has a special talent.

“Charlotte wanted me to tell you that she is very good in front of goal. She told me to tell you. I said okay, I’ll tell them that,” he told the Lionesses, before adding that Princess Charlotte was a potential “budding star of the future.”

In a post shared on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s social media page, Prince William said the England team are “already inspiring the next generation of women and girls to play football, reaping the benefits mental and physical activity”.

Looking ahead to the Euros this summer, he said: “A major tournament on home soil is an exciting prospect and it’s clear the players are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to show what they can do,” adding that “the whole nation will be cheering [the team] on!”

Prince William is the chairman of the English Football Association (FA) and has often been seen at matches. He even brought Prince George to a recent game.
