Prince William has given the England team a morale boosting pep talk ahead of the World Cup. The Duke of Cambridge won’t be heading to Brazil for the football tournament, instead his younger brother Prince Harry will be enjoying all the footie fun and is scheduled to see two matches—as Royal Watch reported yesterday.
William watched England beat Peru 3-0 at Wembley Stadium on Friday night and made a visit to the team’s locker room afterwards.
Speaking to captain Steven Gerrard, he congratulated the team on their performance and he also recorded a video message to wish England luck. Watch the video below.
England’s first match is against Italy on June 14. Although William will be at home in England, he said he would be watching the matches and even joked that he would be playing a bit of soccer with Prince George who has his very own Football Association football. “I can assure you that George and I will be having a go ourselves with this special red and blue ball, one of thousands being given away by The F.A. Whatever your club colors, I am sure we will all be supporting the Three Lions this summer. Good luck England!” Quite!
