And they weren’t the only members of the fam sending luck to the players. The royal family's official Instagram account re-shared a video from Team GB's official page, with the message, “Wishing #TeamGB every success at the #Tokyo2020 #Olympics. 'I and the whole nation will be cheering you on and proudly supporting you from home' – The Princess Royal, President @TeamGB."
This isn’t the first time William has shown support for his country’s team. In fact, the Duke of Cambridge recently surprised British boxer and Olympian, Lauren Price, for an interview with BBC Sports. The chat took place at Kensington Palace just days ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Lucky for us, William shared the video on the YouTube account he shares with his wife.
