Prince William warns players ‘if anyone breaks a window, you can answer to [the Queen]‘ at Buckingham Palace soccer match
Prince William had a warning for those set to play a rare soccer match on the beautiful lawns of Buckingham Palace: don’t break a window.
“I cannot tell you how excited I am that later today we will be playing football [soccer] on my grandmother’s lawn,” Prince William said of the first competitive match held on the extensive palace grounds. “One warning, though: if anyone breaks a window, you can answer to her.”
In a training session during the game, the Prince — who sported track pants with an immaculate, apparently ironed, crease down the front — a self-proclaimed Aston Villa fan sported a pair of orange Nike football boots for the occasion, which were reportedly given to him as a gift by Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney (Photos: Toby Melville - WPA Pool/Getty Images)
