Prince William Shares Adorable “Bit Of Advice” Prince Louis Offered England’s Soccer Team

Prince William shared some royal advice with England’s soccer team today, but it didn’t come from him. Instead, it came from his youngest son, Prince Louis.

The future king met with the team’s players on June 10 to wish them luck ahead of the UEFA EURO 2024 tournament, which kicks off on Friday (June 14). While he was there, he relayed a message from Louis.

“The best bit of advice I got was to eat twice the amount you normally would eat!” Prince William shared.

“So, I now have visions of you running around with massive great tummies,” he joked. “So maybe take my youngest’s advice with a pinch of salt, particularly around the physio team.”

William had asked his three children—Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, 9, and Prince Louis, 6—for words of wisdom as he was driving them to school that morning. He and his kids are avid soccer fans and regularly attend games. Just last month, William and Prince George took a father-son outing to watch the FA Cup final.

Prince William Will Be “Watching Every Single Game” In The Tournament

During the event, William handed shirts to the team players and assured them he’d be “watching every single game.”

“As some of you know way better than anyone else in this room, tournament football is brutal. It requires a lot more than you’ve already given,” he said. “It’s going to be difficult; it’s going to be fun; it’s going to be challenging, and everything you’ve ever dreamed of wearing that England shirt.”

The Prince of Wales is the Football Association’s president. The organization governs the professional soccer leagues throughout the country.
