On Monday, Prince William met with Gareth Southgate's 26-player squad, where he cheered on the team with an unconventional speech. “The best bit of advice I got to ask you was to eat twice the amount you normally would eat,” he said.

The Prince of Wales continued, “So I then had visions of you all running around with massive great tummies and loads of stitches on the pitch so I think maybe take my youngest's advice with a pinch of salt, particularly around the physio.”

“Tournament football is brutal and it requires a lot more than you've already given…It's going to be difficult, it’s going to be fun, it’s going to be challenging, it’s going to be everything that you’ve ever dreamed of, you know, wearing that England shirt,” he added, per Express.

“What Gareth has instilled in all of you over the years, I really feel that you’re a unit. You fight for each other, you play for each other and you really care about putting that shirt on,” Prince William further said.
