England is playing Denmark in the World Cup on Wednesday evening for a chance to make it to the final, where the winning team will play Italy.

Whether or not football is truly "coming home", it's fair to say there is plenty of excitement in the air from both sets of fans – including the royals!

Earlier in the day, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's official Twitter account shared a video of a brass band playing Three Lions in order to wish the England team luck.

William will also be attending the match – although sadly without his wife, who has to self-isolate following contact with someone with COVID-19.

Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik will also be cheering on their national team alongside their son Christian, and many celebrities are expecting to be there as well.
