The couple are usually private about their family life and share very few snaps of their children; Ivy, four, Vivienne, two and six-month-old Louis. However, moments before the highly-anticipated match, Kate wrote to husband Harry, telling him how proud she is of what he is doing for the country.

In her emotional letter, posted on Instagram, she said: "I used to laugh at you when we started going out and you’d be round mine - playing penalties with my brother Tom, and Seamus the dog, and you'd say you would be England captain one day.
