Travelling to St George’s Park, the national football centre in Burton upon Trent, Prince William met the squad and spoke with coach Gareth Southgate ahead of their first match against Serbia on Sunday.

The Prince of Wales, with England captain Harry Kane,

Prince William has always been open about his appreciation for the sport. During a previous chat with footballers Harry Kane and Declan Rice, the Prince revealed that he has football to thank for some of his closest friends, telling the sportsmen that he has “a lot of friends” he met through playing football in his youth.

“Some of the greatest friendships are born from playing games and being pushed together in slight adversity,” he continued.  

Princess Kate’s husband continued that playing huge games of football are some of his fondest memories from childhood. He recalled playing four simultaneous games of football with his entire set at school – around 60 pupils – using multiple balls.

“The sheer size and scale and just the fun of everyone running around chasing each other, I loved it,” he recalled. “I was a defender, I was stuck at the back and told to just tackle.”
