Prince William has made no secret for his love of football, and has been delighting royal fans by sending out personal tweets about England’s victory in the World Cup over the last few days. But even though he is huge fan of football, he won’t be able to go to Russia to support the England team in person. This is because Prince William & Prince Harry are not allowed in the host country. The royal family and government ministers have been banned from entering Russia following the Salisbury poisoning of former Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter Yulia.
However, not attending the World Cup in person cannot stop William from enjoying the game. After England beat Sweden with a final score of 2-0 in the quarter-finals on Saturday, William took to Kensington Palace’s Twitter account to congratulate the team in person.
I couldn’t be prouder of @england – a victory in a penalty shootout! You have well and truly earned your place in the final eight of the #worldcup and you should know the whole country is right behind you for Saturday! Come on England! W
