Prince William's Plans For The School Holidays Have Been Disclosed After Cancelling A Royal Visit

Kensington Palace has confirmed that the Prince of Wales will attend the FA Cup final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Prince William, 41, who has been the President of The Football Association since 2006, will be present to watch the match between Manchester City and Manchester United. He will also have the honor of presenting the trophy to the winners.

The father-of-three is well-known for his passion for football and is a devoted supporter of Aston Villa, a West Midlands team.

Earlier in May, William was spotted cheering for his beloved team at Villa Park during their European semi-final against Olympiacos. Unfortunately, Aston Villa lost 4-2 in the first leg of the Europa Conference League tie.

The Prince also expressed his delight when Aston Villa secured qualification to play in the Champions League next season, sharing a personal message on X.

: “We are Champions League! A historic season and an amazing achievement. Thanks to Unai, the whole squad and everyone at @AVFCOfficial. Can’t wait for next season. #UTV! W.”

William’s appearance at the FA Cup Final comes after he had to cancel a scheduled royal visit for Thursday last-minute, with Kensington Palace: “We look forward to rescheduling in the future and are extremely sorry to anyone who has already travelled.”

The royal family, including the King and Queen, have postponed engagements “which may appear to divert attention or distract from the election campaign” after Rishi Sunak called a surprise summer General Election for 4 July.

May Half-Term

William’s outing coincides with his three children, ten-year-old Prince George, nine-year-old Princess Charlotte, and six-year-old Prince Louis enjoying the May half-term school holiday. In previous years, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have spent the school breaks at their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.

Kate, 42, has reduced her royal duties as she undergoes preventative chemotherapy following a cancer diagnosis.

The Duchess underwent significant abdominal surgery in January, and in a poignant video message in March, she disclosed that post-operative tests indicated the presence of cancer.

D-Day Commemorations

While some royal engagements have been postponed, the King, Queen, and Prince of Wales are still scheduled to attend commemorative events in Normandy marking the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

On June 5th, Charles, Camilla, and William will participate in the UK’s national commemorative event in Portsmouth.

On June 6th, the King and Queen will attend the Ministry of Defence and Royal British Legion’s event at the British Normandy Memorial in Ver-sur-Mer.

Simultaneously, the Prince of Wales will be present at the Canadian commemorative ceremony at the Juno Beach Centre in Courseulles-sur-Mer.

William will then attend the international commemorative ceremony at Omaha Beach in Saint Laurent sur Mer later that day, alongside 25 heads of state and veterans from around the world.

The Princess of Wales is not expected to travel to France for these events.
