PrinceWilliam, Duchess of Cambridge and their two children seen at the match between Norwich City vs Aston Villa

NORWICH ENGLANDRoyal watchers who were at the Norwich City v Aston Villa match on Saturday were in for a treat, as Prince William was spotted at Norwich’s Carrow Road football ground with his wife the Duchess of Cambridge and their two oldest children, Prince George, six, and Princess Charlotte, four. William looked smart in a blue shirt with matching V-neck sweater and Kate wore her hair in loose waves.

Charlotte sat on her mum’s knee, who appeared to be explaining the game to her daughter, while George was next to his dad, even rising to punch the air when celebrating Aston Villa’s fourth goal, scored by Conor Hourihane. The royals picked a great game, as the heir to the throne’s team Aston Villa established a great lead over their local club.


As President of the Football Association, William is unsurprisingly a huge football fan, even tweeting his approval of Liverpool’s victory over Barcelona in the Champion’s League semi-final this spring via the official Kensington Palace Twitter account, signing his tweet “W”. Along with his wife, The Duchess of Cambridge, he also launched the Heads Up campaign in August.

This initiative, which has the support of the Football Association, aims to encourage football fans, especially men, to talk about their mental health during the 2019/20 season.

William has explained to OgeneAfrican why he supports Aston Villa, despite not being from the Midlands, telling Gary Lineker in 2015 that the decision dates back to his childhood. The Prince revealed: “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.

I wanted to have a team that was more mid-table that could give me more emotional rollercoaster moments.”
