It it thought that Prince William might return to London earlier than expected and be heading back to his home at Kensington Palace by the end of the week.


Prince William, Duchess Catherine, and their three children are currently on a summer holiday at the Queen's Scottish residence, Balmoral Castle. While the date of the family's return to Kensington Palace has yet to be confirmed, they typically like to spend a few weeks away from royal duties with their children in the summer. 

It is now thought that Prince William could be ending this summer retreat early and returning to London this weekend in order to watch England play in the Euros final. 

This is because Prince William paused his family holiday to send an important message of support to the Lionesses after they won the semi-final match against Sweden. Following this message, fans think that the Duke of Cambridge, who is the President of the Football Association, may travel back to London for the final at Wembley on Sunday, July 31, 2022. 

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to show their support for the @Lionesses by attending the #WEURO2022 final at on Sunday, when England will play either Germany or France #Lionesses," said the Royal Editor of the Sunday Times on Twitter.
