Prince William’s Fanboy Moment At The European Championships Goes Viral

Prince William

Prince William has gone viral again!

The future King of England is a major soccer fan and always has been. The 42-year-old is such an avid fan that he became the president of The Football Association in 2006. So when England’s men’s national team headed to Germany for a matchup with Switzerland during the Euro 2024 tournament last week, William was unsurprisingly in the stands.

Close to the game’s end, England was behind by one goal, and Prince William was literally on the edge of his seat as the team tried to tie the game. Cameras caught him intensely watching as the players neared the net— Bukayo Saka kicked and scored, and William erupted with emotions.

A video of William’s celebration is souring on the internet because it once again makes him relatable in the best ways.

“What I like about Prince William is the fact that he doesn’t mind being a normal person instead of someone with a crown,” someone wrote in the comments of a TikTok post.

“That shout YES! Haha then suddenly remembering who he is and trying to get back to looking princely,” another person laughed.

“Think he is brilliant, really down to earth,” a commenter added.

Prince William “Is All About Being A Normal Human Being”

Prince William has had several viral moments over the past few months. One of his most recent showed him flying around Windsor Castle on a scooter, and another captured him dancing to Shake It Off while he was celebrating his birthday at a Taylor Swift concert.

“From Taylor Swift’s concert to the Euros, Prince William is all about being a normal human being,” someone shared.

Fortunately, Prince William did not walk away from the game with a heavy heart. After tying the game, the national team ended up winning 5-3 after a penalty kick shootout. They will advance to the semifinals on July 10 where they’ll play the Netherlands.
