There was definitely a celebration in Kensington Palace last night as Prince William’s beloved team Aston Villa won over Liverpool. To show his support, Prince William retweeted Aston Villa’s post, with a clapping emoji, which read: “A night to remember at Villa Park!”
It’s no secret that he is an avid soccer fan but it seems he’s passed on the passion to his family, especially to Prince George. In October 2019, George was filmed becoming very excitable as Aston Villa took the lead against Norwich.
The young Prince also donned an England football jersey in his 6th birthday portraits taken by mom Kate.
Two months ago, Prince William revealed how he scared Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, as Aston Villa, grabbed the victory against West Ham.
He said:”The nerves were the worst I’ve ever known them. My children looked at me in horror as I was jumping off the sofa, screaming my head off.”
He added: “It’s very good news that as president of the FA I can hide away until these moments. And I’m not visibly seen because it was one of the most stressful moments of my life, as I imagine every Villa fan felt on that day.”
On why he supports Aston Villa, the Duke revealed in 2015 that the decision dates back to his childhood.
The Prince revealed: “A long time ago at school I got into football big time. 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. I wanted to have a team that was more mid-table that could give me more emotional rollercoaster moments.”
