No doubt a meet and greet with the future King of England, who is a known Aston Villa fan, will set their spirits high.

William will be introduced to head coach Mark Sampson, one of the team's senior members Fara Williams – who is also patron of the Homeless FA – and the rest of the players in the dressing room.

The Duke of Cambridge will also meet head of the Homeless FA Gareth Parker. Homeless FA is part of Centrepoint, the UK's leading youth homelessness charity, of which William is a patron.

William and Kate previously opened the FA's National Football Centre in 2012

During his visit the 32-year-old royal will watch the women's football team train, and then join the players on the pitch for a group photo.

This is not the first time that the Duke has travelled to the FA's National Football Centre. William was given the honour of opening the facility back in 2012, when he was joined by his wife the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton.

At the time William and Kate, 33, unveiled a plaque, were introduced to England football manager Roy Hodgson and his national team, and also watched the players make use of the hydrotherapy suite.

The Duchess, who gave birth to her and William's second baby on Saturday 2 May, is not expected to join her husband this time around, as she is resting and bonding with her newborn baby at home in Anmer Hall.
