Prince William Shares Rare Statement Following England’s ‘Heartbreaking’ Loss: ‘I Know There’s More to Come’

Prince William has been busy showing support for England’s football (soccer to us Americans) team over the last few weeks. And now that the Euro tournament has come to an end, he released a personal statement.

The Duke of Cambridge first sat on the sidelines of Wembley Stadium back in June along with his 7-year-old son, Prince Geroge, and his wife, Kate Middleton. And last Wednesday, the 39-year-old attended the semi-final Euros match between England and Denmark (however, this time, he was solo).

Finally, on Sunday, he was joined once again by his wife and eldest child for the finals between Italy and England. For the occasion, George matched his father, who is President of the Football Association, in a navy suit, a blue shirt, and a striped tie. The Duchess of Cambridge, who recently finished self-isolating after being exposed to COVID-19, opted for a white blazer and top and a pair of red earrings from London designer Blaiz.

Unfortunately, the game didn’t go as the prince and his family would have hoped, considering Italy took home the title.

Afterward, he shared a message on social media about the “heartbreaking” loss. “Heartbreaking. Congratulations @Azzurri on a great victory,” he wrote in an IG post. “@England, you’ve all come so far, but sadly this time it wasn’t our day. You can all hold your heads high, and be so proud of yourselves—I know there’s more to come. W.”

And he wasn’t the only one being a good sport about the final outcome of the game. In fact, fans and followers commented on the post revealing how happy they were to see the family of three cheering from the stands. One user wrote, “It was pure fun seeing Prince George and the Duke of Cambridge so happy! There will be better times for the Three Lions.”

We love the passion that Will has for the sport.
