Prince William is a keen football fan and headed to Wembley on Sunday to show his support for the England women's football team – also known as the Lionesses – in their bid for victory against Germany in the Euros.

The dad-of-three delighted fans earlier in the day when he released a video alongside his daughter, Princess Charlotte, as they shared their excitement about the match.

Although Charlotte didn't join her dad at the event, she will no doubt be cheering on the England team. Her older brother, Prince George, nine, is also a keen football fan.
