Gift for children! Prince William receives football shirts for George, Charlotte and Louis

Prince William was in high spirits today as he received a set of football shirts for Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis during a meeting with the England women’s national team players.

The Duke of Cambridge, 39, attended the England women’s soccer team’s training session during a visit to their training center at St George’s Park, in Burton upon Trent earlier today.

During the visit, the king, dressed in a blue open-collar suit, was presented with shirts to each of his children, Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, seven, and Prince Louis, four.

T-shirts seem to carry all ages of children.

After presenting the shirts, the father-of-three commented, “Charlotte wants me to tell you she’s good at aiming…a budding star of the future!”

‘She said, ‘Please tell them,’ added the Duke, ‘and I said, ‘Okay I’ll tell them.’

Meanwhile, as he posed for a photo holding his soccer jerseys, he said: “It’s going to look like they’ve signed for England.”

Elsewhere, Captain Leah Williamson told George plays for a local team, adding, “He’s become very competitive.”

Prince George is said to be a football fan and has been seen with his parents at England and Aston Villa matches, while Charlotte has also been seen at Norwich matches.

William is also a passionate football fan and is always sitting in the stands at Villa Park.

George’s love of football has been no secret, with the royals celebrating Christmas with sport-themed parties at Kensington Palace, and William saying he hopes his eldest son will one day be Villa’s top scorer.

The Duke was seen speaking with the players during today’s visit, before touring the training ground.

He was also seen showing off his footballing skills, asking the players if he could “try” to score the goal.

King joked about his hamstrings before saying, “This could go anywhere!”

His visit comes as he prepares to move his family to Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor Estate this summer.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are said to be planning to uproot their family from Kensington, west London, to Adelaide’s country house in Berkshire in order to get closer to the Queen.

Rebuilt in 1831, this new Grade II listed retreat in Cambridge is within walking distance of St George’s Chapel and Windsor Castle, proudly situated on a 655-acre royal estate in Berkshire.

Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, said: “The Queen needs more people like William around her.

She’s often on her own apart from the staff, so William, Kate and her three grandchildren will be happy to be ten minutes away. The family was very restricted in what they could do during the week at Kensington Palace.

Sources close to the family say the Cambridges have been keen to be closer to the Queen, 96, who has had occasional mobility issues in recent months, and is also ensuring a good school for her three children.

George, eight, Charlotte, seven, and Louis, four, will be withdrawn from their current prep school in Battersea, and they are all expected to start school locally when the new semester begins in September.

The move also marks a fresh start for the senior royals and their families of five as they continue to establish themselves among the most influential members of the company.

A source told The Sun: “Kate and William were very keen on a modest home to start their new life in Windsor. Adelaide Cottage fits the bill because it’s a four-bedroom home and they don’t need it anymore since there are no resident staff.

They had no other demands than a nice family home near the schools and the Queen.

They were adamant that they didn’t want anything too flashy or anything that needed refurbishment or extra security so it wouldn’t be a burden to the taxpayer.
