Princess Charlotte is ‘Good Footballer’
Britain’s Princess Charlotte is a “very good footballer”.
The 11-month-old royal – who turns one on May 2 – is already showing signs of being a great soccer star, according to her father Prince William.
Speaking at Wembley Stadium in north London to celebrate his 10 years as President of the Football Association, the Aston Villa fan said: “She’s a very good footballer. You hold her hand and she kicks it. Very sweet.”
William’s comments, which came a during a conversation with former Villa and Chelsea star Paul Elliott, indicate the young royal has taken her first steps ahead of her first birthday, just as her brother Prince George, two, did.
The Duke of Cambridge made a speech at the event to the likes of FA Chairman Greg Dyke, and admitted he has enjoyed “every moment” of being FA President, despite supporting Villa, who are currently languishing bottom of the Premier League.
He said: “It has been a great pleasure to work alongside you over the years and witness the transformative impact you have had on the organisation. I know you will not be resting on your laurels in the remaining months till July, but let me take this opportunity to thank you for your service to the FA and wish you the best of luck for the future.
“I feel hugely privileged to have been President of the Football Association for the last 10 years.
“Looking back, being given the opportunity to be the President of such an historic and world-renowned institution from a relatively young age could have appeared quite daunting.
“But I have relished every moment – as a football fan, even a Villa fan, who wouldn’t?”
