Prince William Just Posted a Personally-Signed Message on Twitter

Prince William doesn't often share personal messages to social media, but when he does, there's a good chance it might have something to do with sports. The athletics aficionado recently took to Twitter to show his support for England's national women's football team (AKA soccer if you're in the U.S.)—the Lionesses.

The Duke of Cambridge retweeted a video that was posted on the official Lionesses Twitter account, where they wrote, “This year means more. To you. To us. To all of us. Our family. Our time.”

Along with reposting the clip, the duke wrote, “Good luck to the @Lionesses as the Women’s Euro 2022 kicks off today. You’re already doing the nation proud and we’ll be cheering you on throughout the tournament!” The royal indicated that he wrote the tweet by signing it with a “W.”

It's no surprise that the Duke of Cambridge showed his support for the Lionesses, given that he is the President of the Football Association (FA) in England. He has held this role since 2006, and it is a position that was previously filled by his late grandfather, Prince Philip, back in the ’50s.

Following the duke's personally-signed tweet, he shared another message once the Lionesses played their first match against the Austrian women's team and ended up winning the game, 1-0. The Lionesses account tweeted, “YESSSS. A winning start at #WEURO2022 for the #Lionesses,” and Prince William shared the tweet, along with a series of clapping hands emojis.

In the past, we've seen the Duke of Cambridge show his support for a variety of different U.K. sports teams, as well as individual players, like Blackpool FC star Jake Daniels, who came out as gay in the spring.

It's hard to beat a message of support from a royal.
