Watch as Prince William plays football, taking part in a training session while hosting the first ever match at Buckingham Palace.
The game between Civil Service FC and Polytechnic FC was reportedly “the first fully competitive match staged in the grounds” of the Palace.
London side Civil Service FC, the only surviving team of 11 that formed the FA on 26 October 1863, lost 2-1 against Polytechnic FC, set up in 1875.
Prince William had told the players that if anyone broke a window they would “answer to” the Queen.
At half-time, palace footmen and women – wearing waistcoats and tail-coats – carried water, orange slices and chocolate bars on silver-plated platters onto the pitch for the players.
During the second half, the prince and former England striker Michael Owen joined in a training session with royal staff.
In this short clip, FA president the Duke of Cambridge shows off his skills for the camera in a series of passing and fitness exercises – and doesn’t come off badly at all.
