Princes support opposing teams for FA Cup Final
Britain’s Prince Harry will be supporting the opposite soccer team to his brother in the FA Cup Final on Saturday (30.05.15).
The 30-year-old prince is a self-confessed Arsenal fan and is set to see his side take on Prince William’s beloved Aston Villa team at Wembley.
Speaking about his soccer allegiances, Prince Harry previously said: “Most of the royal family are Arsenal fans.”
The prince has watched Arsenal play at the Emirates and their former stadium, Highbury, while his grandmother – Queen Elizabeth – is another high-profile supporter of the North London club.
The extent of the Queen’s support for Arsenal was revealed by the club’s former midfielder Cesc Fabregas, who spoke to her about the sport while he was still with the Gunners.
The Spaniard – who now plays for Arsenal’s cross-city rivals Chelsea – shared: “It seems the Queen follows football and she told us she was an Arsenal fan. She appeared to definitely know who I was and we exchanged a few special words.”
Meanwhile, Prince William will be attending Saturday’s game in his role as the President of the Football Association, a post he’s held since May 2006.
