Prince William is facing an uncomfortable situation as an upcoming meeting with two royals approaches.

The Prince of Wales will attend the Euro 2024 final on Sunday in his role as the President of the Football Association.


England will face Spain in the highly anticipated contest as Gareth Southgate bids to become the first Three Lions manager to win the Euros.

Spain has won two editions of the Euros in the 21st century with back-to-back triumphs coming in 2008 and 2012.

England and Spain have not faced off against each other in a major tournament in men’s football since 1996.

However, just last year, Spain and England’s Lionesses contested the Women’s World Cup final.

This will bring up painful memories for the Prince of Wales as he suffered a furious backlash over his decision not to attend the final in Australia.

The situation was made worse for William by the fact the Spanish Royal Family made the long trip to support their team.

The Prince of Wales’s decision not to attend the game sparked urgent pleas for the Princess of Wales to go in his place.

A royal commentator wrote: “Oops… own goal from Team Windsor. But it’s not too late to book your ticket, #Kate – the Lionesses need your support”.

“In the end, Spain will have a royal supporter there, the #Lionsses won’t. At a time like this diplomatic considerations come second to world optics – currently, the royal score is Spain 1, England 0.”

Queen Letizia and her daughter Princess Sofia watched on as Spain defeated England 1-0 to win the World Cup.
