The Royals Celebrate the English Women’s Team Win at the 2022 Euro Cup

A little less than a year after a disappointed Prince George watched the English national men’s soccer team lose the Euro Cup to Italy in a nail-biter of a match, the royals are celebrating another team that brought the win home. On Sunday, July 31, the English national women’s soccer team beat Germany 2-1 in the final match at Wembley Stadium, and plenty of members of the House of Windsor chimed in to congratulate the Lionesses.

Earlier on Sunday, ahead of the Euro Cup match, Prince William and Princess Charlotte wished the team luck in a rare front-facing camera video. “We both want to wish the Lionesses the best of luck tonight,” William said. “You’ve done amazingly well in the competition, and we’re rooting for you all the way!” Then Charlotte chimed in, adding “Good luck! I hope you win. Bye!” (People pointed out that Charlotte is wearing a navy polka-dot dress, following in the footsteps of her mother, Kate Middleton, who has favored the pattern this summer.) 

After the win, the congratulations came quickly. Prince William, who is president of England’s Football Association, was on hand in the stadium to hand the trophy to team captain Leah Williamson, and in a tweet signed “W,” the prince called the win “sensational.” The Royal Family account tweeted a personal message from Queen Elizabeth. “Your success goes far beyond the trophy you have so deservedly earned,” it read. “You have all set an example that will be an inspiration for girls and women today, and for future generations.”

Later, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, shared a few celebratory photos from the match and added their own comments. “Your success goes far beyond the trophy you have so deservedly earned. Congratulations to the victorious Lionesses,” it read. “Your teamwork, determination and sportsmanship will inspire a generation. You have made us all proud.”

It’s just the beginning for the summer of royal sports. Over the weekend, Prince Charles, Prince Edward, and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, were in Birmingham for the opening ceremonies of the Commonwealth Games, which will feature athletes from 71 different Commonwealth countries. Prince Edward and Sophie were also spotted watching a few events at the stadium, along with Princess Anne and her husband, Timothy Laurence. On Monday, Sophie returned to watch badminton with her daughter, Lady Louise Windsor, and the pair were photographed with their hands on their heads during the shocking match.
