Everybody needs to let off steam from time to time and in the same week Prince William and Prince Harry ‘avoid’ each other as they work on a joint UK project for the first time in months—Prince William did just that.
In photos from a football match between Manchester City and Aston Villa the Prince is seen going absolutely bonkers watching his favorite team. Sadly for the Duke of Cambridge, a staunch Aston Villa fan, his side lost.
Although royals have to stay impartial on many matters, seemingly they're allowed to be biased when it comes to where their sporting loyalties lie. The Duke of Cambridge previously explained his devotion to his favorite team back in 2015.
Birmingham Live reports that Prince William told BBC presenter Gary Linker, " A long time ago at school I got into football big time. I was looking around for clubs. All my friends at school were either Man United fans or Chelsea fans and I didn’t want to follow the run-of-the-mill teams."
Describing one particularly emotional match he added, "I was sat with all the Brummie fans and had a great time. It was the atmosphere, the camaraderie and I really felt that there was something I could connect with."
The Duke of Cambridge’s first visit to Villa Park this season may have been unsuccessful for his team, but it's clear that the day out was a much-needed break from all of the stress his family is currently facing.
Recently it was revealed that the Queen, Prince Charles, and Prince William were to file complaint over the BBC royal documentary. If that's not enough, it's believed that a second tell-all interview from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could push the royals to ‘breaking point’.
The royal family truly is going through an 'annus horribilis' as the ongoing allegations of sexual abuse against Prince Andrew, which he vehemently denies, rage on. So it's no wonder that concerns over the Queen's frailty are increasing day by day.
Not only was her majesty advised to cancel several public engagements but the Queen’s ‘weight loss’ after returning to work has fans seriously worried.
