The national side is gearing up for their monumental clash against Denmark tonight in the semi-finals of Euro 2020 – and senior royals have been getting into the spirit of the tournament. Prince William was seen celebrating Gareth Southgate’s historic 2-0 win over Germany at Wembley and now even the future king has got involved following the Three Lions’ 4-0 thrashing of Ukraine in the quarter-finals. Prince Charles invited the Band of the Coldstream Guards to play an instrumental version of the classic ‘Football’s Coming Home’ song at his London home Clarence House.
The Prince of Wales also requested ‘Sweet Caroline,’ the 1969 hit by American songwriter Neil Diamond that is often heard belted out by English fans.
But some have been left frustrated that the “British royals have only attended England games”.
It came after The National claimed: “No member of the Royal Family has attended a football game played by a home nation other than England this century.”
According to the Court Circular, probed by the Scottish daily newspaper, the most recent time a royal saw an international football match played by a home nation other than England was “in 1998, when Prince Edward watched Scotland’s World Cup game against Norway”.
They noted how both Wales and Scotland also qualified for Euro 2020, but “no royals attended their matches”.
And the revelation sparked some anger online.
One Twitter user noted: “For those who are shocked maybe they need to remember why there’s a Prince of Wales in the first place.”
Another added: “That’s fine by me and I hope they have no plans to watch a Wales game anytime soon.”
A third claimed: “Nobody in Scotland wanted them to be there!”
