Prince William has shared an
emotional message with followers after England’s women’s football team
won the 2022 Euro Championship final.
incredible win @lionesses and the whole nation couldn’t be prouder of
you all. Wonderful to see history in the making tonight at Wembley,
congratulations!” he captioned a post on Instagram with a picture
showing women holding up high their trophy. He signed the post “W,”
revealing it was from him directly.
The finals saw England beat
Germany 2-1 after the game went into extra time. William could be seen cheeting
loudly as Chloe Kelly scored the team’s second, crucial goal ten minutes
before the end of the match.
William is a keen football fan
and headed to Wembley on Sunday to show his support for the England
women’s football team – also known as the Lionesses – in their bid for victory
against Germany in the Euros.
The dad-of-three delighted
fans earlier in the day when he released a video alongside his
daughter, Princess Charlotte, as they shared their excitement about the match.
In the touching tribute, which
was posted to both Twitter and Instagram, William and Charlotte spoke directly
to the camera.
The Prince said: “We both
want to wish the Lionesses the best of luck for tonight. You’ve done amazingly
well in the competition and we are rooting for you all the way.”
Charlotte added: “Good
luck, I hope you win.”
Although Charlotte didn’t join
her dad at the event, she will no doubt be cheering on the England team. Her
older brother, Prince George, nine, is also a keen football fan.
