The Prince of Wales, who is 40 years old, went to St. George’s Park on Wednesday to celebrate its 10th anniversary as the home of English soccer (or football, as the Brits say).
William talked to para-footballers, young players, and competitors at this year’s Street Child World Cup about the opportunities they’ve had through the sport at St. George’s Park, which has been the home of the national senior men’s, women’s, para and development squads since 2012. Also, the facility has helped support local soccer activities to help England’s soccer community grow.
Prince William is president of the Football Association, which is in charge of English soccer. He often goes to games, like when he took his 9-year-old son Prince George and his 40-year-old wife Kate Middleton to the men’s Euro 2020 games last summer.
This summer, when Prince William went to see England’s women’s soccer team, it came out that his 7-year-old daughter, Princess Charlotte, also likes soccer. “Charlotte wanted me to tell you that she is really good at goal,” the royal told the team, according to Hello!
She said, ‘Please tell them that.’ She’s a budding star for the future.” Then, Prince William asked Princess Charlotte to send a video message of good luck to the Lionesses before their final match against Germany at Euro 2020. It worked. England won the tournament, and William was there to help give the trophy to them.
While Prince William caught up with the soccer team, Kate went to the Royal Surrey Hospital to see a maternity unit. In recent years, a lot of Princess Kate’s royal work has been about helping young children grow and learn. This is because she is a mother of three and has learned a lot from her own kids.
