Prince William and Prince George have just celebrated a big win. Their favourite club, Aston Villa will play Premier League football next season after a draw at West Ham was enough to ensure they escaped relegation on the final day of the campaign.
To mark the club’s big win, Prince William retweeted a video of the squad singing Neil Diamond classic ‘Sweet Caroline’ in the dressing room as they celebrated. He captioned his tweet: “Never in doubt [grimacing face] #UpTheVilla W.”
Prince William is an avid Aston Villa fan and has spoken about his support of the club many times. Speaking to the BBC during the 2015 FA Cup final, William said: “I was looking around for clubs. All my friends at school were either Man United fans or Chelsea fans and I didn’t want to follow the run of the mill teams.
William explained he chose to support Villa because he wanted “those rollercoaster moments.”
“I wanted to have a team that was more mid-table that could give me more emotional rollercoaster moments. Aston Villa’s always had a great history.”
Back in October, Prince William and Kate brought Prince George and Princess Charlotte to cheer on their favourite team Aston Villa vs Norwich City.
Prince George seemed excited as he was snapped celebrating wildly at Carrow Road alongside his family after Conor Hourihane put Aston Villa 5-1 up against Norwich.

Although the result in favour of Villa, William looked a little serious. He was spotted leaning over to tell excitable George to ‘calm down’.
But, two months ago, he revealed the real reason for his reaction. Speaking in the BBC Documentary Football, Prince William and Our Mental Health, he said: “I wasn’t celebrating, that was the problem.
“I was sitting with the home fans. George did my bit of celebrating for me.”
