Prince William cheers on the England soccer team as he attends their match against Slovakia on Monday (June 20) in Saint-Eitenne, France.
The 33-year-old royal is known to be a big supporter of his country when it comes to sports. He often plays polo and attends England’s sporting events.
The following day, William‘s younger brother, Prince Harry joined a rugby program in Stockport, England where the 31-year-old royal tossed the ball around with members of the program while he laughed and joked with them.

The 33-year-old royal is the first of any member of the Royal Family to be photographed for the cover of a gay publication.
William met with members of the LGBT community and listened to their experiences of homophobic, bi-phobic, and transphobic bullying, as well as discussed the subsequent mental health implications.
“No one should be bullied for their sexuality or any other reason and no one should have to put up with the kind of hate that these young people have endured in their lives,” William said. “The young gay, lesbian and transgender individuals I met through Attitude are truly brave to speak out and to give hope to people who are going through terrible bullying right now.”
He continued, “Their sense of strength and optimism should give us all encouragement to stand up to bullying wherever we see it. What I would say to any young person reading this who’s being bullied for their sexuality: don’t put up with it – speak to a trusted adult, a friend, a teacher, Childline, Diana Award or some other service and get the help you need. You should be proud of the person you are and you have nothing to be ashamed of.”
