Soccer fans in Britain will flock to Wembley Stadium on Saturday, when Aston Villa and Arsenal play in the FA Cup Final -- and one of them will be Prince William, an ardent Aston Villa supporter. The royal also plans to bring Prince George to a match one day, but disclosed that it’s something for which he first needs permission from "the missus" -- Kate Middleton.
In an interview with Football Focus on Thursday, Gary Lineker asked Prince William when he plans to bring his son to watch his first soccer match. The prince replied that it’s still a little early to bring George given that he’s only 22 months old. He admitted that it’s also something he needs to check with his wife Kate: "I don't know. I'll have to pass that by the missus, see how I can get away with it," BBC Sport reported.
It’s also interesting to discover how the Duke of Cambridge calls Kate by a much simpler title of "missus." According to UK’s Express on Thursday, Prince William used the term to refer to his wife and suggested lightheartedly that he might also regard her as "She Who Must Be Obeyed."
William, the 32-year-old royal, shared that he plans to let his children choose which soccer team they want to support: "The responsible thing would be to say, to let [George] make his own mind up, but I think I might be quite biased."
"I haven't quite worked out how to play that yet,” William continued. “Of course he can support whoever he wants, but if he supports Villa, it'd be fantastic. I'd love to go to the odd match with him in the future. It'll probably end up being that Charlotte is the Villa fan and George will go and support someone else!"
William has also revealed that he’s nervous about the final this weekend. "It's either going to be a very good day for me, or a very bad day," he jokingly said when he visited England's women’s national soccer team last week, the Telegraph reported.
Prince William, who is the president of England's Football Association (FA), will also be at Wembley to present the trophy to the winning team.
