Prince of Wales to watch Three Lions in Germany

The Prince of Wales will be in Germany on Thursday to cheer on the England men’s football team as they take on Denmark in the 2024 Euros.

William, who is president of the FA, will watch Gareth Southgate’s side in their second group stage match at the Frankfurt Arena – the day before his 42nd birthday.

He is one of hundreds of thousands of England fans set to travel to Germany throughout the Euro 2024 championship this summer, which kicked off on June 14.

William, a passionate Aston Villa fan, presented shirts to the England men’s squad before the team left for Germany, making a surprise visit to St George’s Park, England’s national football centre in Burton upon Trent.

He also shared his youngest son Prince Louis’ advice, who suggested the players “eat twice the amount” to secure their bid for Euros glory.

The trip will be a solo one for William, as the Princess of Wales is away from public duties while she continues her treatment for cancer.

England got off to a positive start in Germany when Jude Bellingham scored a header 13 minutes into their Group C opener.

More than 10 million people tuned in to watch England narrowly overcome Serbia in their first match on June 16, with the BBC’s coverage of the clash peaking at 15 million views, the corporation said.

The match was also streamed 3.5 million times on BBC iPlayer.
