Prince William has never been shy about speaking up and supporting the LGBTQIA+ community. And now, he is using his voice again to show support to U.K. soccer star Jake Daniels, who recently came out as gay on social media.
Earlier this week, the Blackpool FC star posted a personal letter to fans on the official team website. The 17-year-old athlete openly came out as gay in the statement, which was followed by a brief message from the soccer team, showing their support for the young player.
In response, the Duke of Cambridge posted a personalized message on Twitter. He wrote in the tweet, “Football should be a game for everyone. What Jake has done takes courage and will hopefully help break down barriers that have no place in our society. I hope his decision to speak openly gives others the confidence to do the same.”
