In the video posted on Twitter on Sundaythe Duke of Cambridge and his daughter wished the England women’s national football team, aka the Lionesses, good luck ahead of their game against Germany in UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 tournament.
“We both want to wish the Lionesses good luck tonight,” William said.
“You did incredibly well in the competition and we support you all the way!”
Sitting next to her dad in a navy polka dot top, Charlotte quickly added, “Good luck. Hope you win.”
The royal dispatch seems to have worked for the Lionesses, as the team emerged victorious on Sunday, win 2-1 against Germany and score their first major title.
William chairs the Football Association, which is the governing body for association football in England and manages the Lionesses.
During a visit with the team to St. George’s Park last month, William received personalized jerseys with the names of his children – Charlotte, George and Louis – printed on the back. He shared with the players that he had a message for them from his daughter Charlotte.
“Charlotte wanted me to tell you she’s really good at goalscoring. She said, ‘Please tell them that’.” William said in a Hello Magazine video. “(He’s a) budding star for the future.”
