Prince William Gets Charlotte Soccer Jersey From England's Women's Soccer Team
The prince was meeting with members of the England Women's Soccer Team.
Charlotte is just 19-days-old but she already has her own soccer – football in the U.K. – jersey thanks to her home country’s women’s soccer team.
The players on England’s women’s squad, the Lionesses, presented Charlotte’s dad, Prince William, with a custom team jersey Wednesday when he met the team at St. George’s Park in Staffordshire.
The jersey had Charlotte’s name on the back along with the number one.
"All the girls were asking how Princess Charlotte is and Prince George and whether they keep him up all night," said team captain Steph Houghton, according to the U.K.’s The Telegraph.
"He was saying he's obviously really enjoying being a father and Princess Charlotte is actually keeping him up and probably why his eyes are looking a little bit tired,” Houghton said.
William, 32, reportedly also revealed that although Charlotte has a jersey, it is currently Prince George who is displaying soccer skills through his quick feet.
"He was saying he never stops moving and is always on the move and keeping them busy,” Houghton said.
Tweets from Kensington Palace show that William, 32, took a team photo with the Lionesses, signed the wall at St. George’s Park and watched the players train.
While William is back to his official royal duties after a two-week paternity leave, his wife, Duchess Kate, is still on maternity leave, caring for Charlotte and nearly 2-year-old Prince George.
The family retreated to Kensington Palace after Charlotte’s May 2nd birth in London and then moved to their country home, Anmer Hall, about two hours outside of London, four days later.
