Prince William has been president of the FA since 2006 and is a passionate football fan. Last month, a source said Prince William may look at travelling to the World Cup in Qatar if England reach the final.
The Prince of Wales, who is president of the Football Association, ruled out attending the tournament due to a ‘busy winter schedule’.
However, it is understood his office may look at making arrangements if England reach the final on December 18.
Yesterday, the Princess of Wales cheered England to victory as she dodged the rain at the Rugby League World Cup Quarter Final after taking over the royal as patron from Prince Harry.
The mother-of-three, 40, said she was ‘proud to be their patron’ after both the men and women’s teams triumphed over Papua New Guinea and Canada DW Stadium in Wigan this afternoon.
Dressed in an Alexander McQueen coat and burgundy turtleneck, the Princess finished off her chic ensemble with a woolen red poppy to show her support for the Armed Forces ahead of Remembrance Sunday and some £425 pearl earrings by UK designer Annoushka Ducas, which she’s owned since 2012.
Styling her brown hair in her signature loose waves, the Princess (pictured on the pitch ahead of kick-off) finished off her chic ensemble with a woolen red poppy to show her support for the Armed Forces ahead of Remembrance Sunday and some pearl earrings.
During the half-time break, Kate spoke with the women’s team – who triumphed Canada earlier in the day. Canadian captain Gabrielle Hindley (second left front row) was also invited to speak with the Princess
While the England men’s team won 46-6 to Papua New Guinea, the women’s team beat Canada 54-4 earlier in the day.
Meeting the female players during half-time of the men’s match, Kate said: ‘I’ve loved watching the game. It’s really exciting, it’s so fast paced. It’s been really exciting, the atmosphere as well.’
She told players: ‘It’s amazing to see the women’s game being played at the same time, alongside the men’s game.’
‘I’m so in awe of all of you, you’re running day jobs as well as training, as well as family life and things like that, it’s extraordinary. You juggle everything.’
