We know the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have always been keen on sports, and it’s clearly something that they’ve passed on to their children. Last year, for the Euros, we saw Kate, William and Prince George cheer on the England football team from the stands. Prince George is such a footie fan that the Cambridges even chose to share lovely photos of him laughing in an England football shirt for his sixth birthday.
But it turns out his sister, Princess Charlotte, is also a fan of football. The Duke of Cambridge visited the England Women’s team at St George’s Park earlier this week, where he received three personalised football shirts for each of his kids.
When Prince William was given Charlotte’s, he revealed: ‘Charlotte wanted me to tell you that she is really good at goal. She said “Please tell them that.” She’s a budding star for the future.’
William, who is president of the Football Association, also watched the team’s training session in Burton upon Trent. He then spoke to players and coaches ahead of the UEFA Women’s Euro 2022, which starts on 6 July and will be hosted by England.
Earlier this year, Prince Harry also shared an update about his son’s interests at an Invictus Games ceremony. There, he revealed three-year-old Archie has hopes of becoming a pilot.
‘I remind him no matter what you want to be when you grow up it is your character that matters most and nothing would make his mum and me prouder than to see him have the character of what we see before us today,’ he said.
It’s great to see the royal children have big aspirations! Who knows, maybe one day we’ll see Princess Charlotte standing in goal on the football pitch…
