Prince William was overjoyed after England's women's soccer team's recent victory.

The Duke of Cambridge congratulated the Lionesses on social media Tuesday night after a 4-0 victory against Sweden. He posted a personal message on Twitter to let the team know the entire country was rooting for them.

"Congratulations @Lionesses, on making it to the #WEURO2022 final on Sunday. The entire country is so proud of everything you're achieving. We believe in you and will be with you all the way!" Prince William wrote and signed off the message with a "W," indicating that it was a personal message from him.

Prince William has been sharing some tweets in the past days to cheer on the Lionesses. Before the game on Tuesday, he wrote, "Good luck tonight @Lionesses, the whole country is behind you #WEURO2022. "

A week ago, when the Lionesses were playing at the semis, the future king and president of the Football Association also dropped a message for them.

"Great performance and comeback @Lionesses, brilliant team effort! On to the #WEURO2022 semis," he tweeted last week and signed it off with a "W."

According to People, it's likely that Prince William's three kids with Kate Middleton — Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4 — watched the game with him on TV. The third in line to the throne has expressed interest in the sport and was even seen cheering on his dad's favorite team, Aston Villa. Prince George was also spotted attending men's Euro 2020 games with his parents last summer, where England also reached the final.

An anonymous source previously told Us Weekly that the dad of three let Prince George choose his favorite soccer team. The Duke of Cambridge believed that "it's about finding what fits" for his child.

"He's very sociable and can chat for hours about his favorite soccer players, plus he loves rugby, cricket, all forms of sports really," the source said. "He's definitely a daddy's boy. It's not just their physical resemblance, they've got a ton of the same interests and hobbies in common – even helicopters!"

Like her big brother, Princess Charlotte is reportedly a "budding star" in soccer. When the Duke of Cambridge visited the Lionesses, he told them his daughter's message to the athletes.

"Charlotte wanted me to tell you that she is really good at goal," William said, People reported. "She said, 'Please tell them that.' She's a budding star for the future."

According to People, Prince William might watch the game at Wembley Stadium in London Sunday. And he might bring along his kids.
