Three important events for the royals happened on the same day, and the duke and duchess of England were seen enjoying the separate events. The Duke of Cambridge enjoying a night out on Wednesday when his lady Kate held a banquet at St James’s Palace. Prince William witnessed his cherished football team Aston Villa take on Chelsea in the Carabao Cup third round at Stamford Bridge.
Duke’s likeability for the Team Hasn’t been kept Hidden for long
Aston Villa’s supporter, the Duke of Cambridge, has been vocal about his craze. William could be seen in the stands cheering on his club during Villa’s Carabao Cup encounter against Chelsea. The royal shout of approval was captured in the 64th minute of normal time after the Villains equalizer against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea and Aston Villa drew 1-1, forcing a penalty shootout.
Aston Villa missed two penalties in a tense shootout before a Chelsea mistake, and a penalty save propelled them back into contention.
Unfortunately, William’s Aston Villa missed their final shot attempt, resulting in a 4-3 penalty defeat. In an interview with former footballer Peter Crouch for BBC Sounds’ ‘That Peter Crouch Podcast’ in 2020, William expressed his desire to avoid following Manchester United like his schoolmates. He says he first became an Aston Villa fan when he was 11 years old, watching Bolton in the FA Cup. I was sitting there with and among all the Villa fans, and I enjoyed it… said the Duke. The atmosphere was fantastic, in my opinion.” I felt a strong bond with the club. Villa seemed to me to be a proud Midlands club, and it seemed unique “Villa has only recently become my true team in the last few years. “It’s only in the last few years that I’ve come to understand Villa as my true team, and I observe them a lot and study their statistics.
Duchess of Cambridge as an Attendee of a Prestigious Event
The Duchess of Cambridge attended an event on Wednesday night to greet and acknowledge the Hold Still project’s partners. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s official social media account published photos from the ceremony. Last year, Kate started the photography project to document what life was like in the UK during the nationwide lockdowns. Later in the year, an exhibition showcasing some of the pictures was held before publication in the book Hold Still: A Portrait of Our Nation in 2020.
