Prince William is taking a break from changing the royal baby’s diapers to host a very special event at Buckingham Palace. Did you know? Not only is Wills the Duke of Cambridge—he also leads The Football Association in England!
Can you imagine if, say, Malia Obama were also the president of the NFL? That’s kind of what it’s like to imagine William being president of the league of the most important sport in the UK, but he takes the role very seriously. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the FA, he’s invited 150 FA volunteers to come watch a game of soccer at Buckingham Palace.
It will be the first-ever football game at Buckingham Palace, and it will pit two of the oldest clubs in the UK against each other, Civil Service FC vs. Polytechnic FC. The volunteers will get to watch and will receive medals in recognition of their service to the sport. The game will take place on October 7.
Did you know William was the president of the Football Association? Do you think Kate Middleton will attend the event with him? Maybe Prince George will wear a little jersey? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
