Prince William cheers on Team GB's soccer stars
Jul 30, 2012, 12:01 GMT
Prince William cheered on Great Britain's football team alongside David Beckham last night (29.07.12).
The royal - who is president of the Football Association and a supporter of English Premier League side Aston Villa - was spotted laughing and joking with the soccer star as they sat next to each other at Wembley Stadium to watch Team GB take on the United Arab Emirates.
David - who was surprisingly left out of Britain's Olympic football squad - took his eldest son Brooklyn, 13, along to see Team GB's second match of the spectacle, which saw them run out 3-1 winners partly thanks to an opening goal from the 37-year-old star's former Manchester United team-mate Ryan Giggs.
It was clearly a lads' night out as William was without his wife, Duchess Catherine, and David didn't take other half Victoria Beckham.
Throughout the Games, William - who is patron of the English Schools' Swimming Association - is due to watch water polo and swimming events at the Aquatics Centre.
He will also join Catherine, Prince Harry, Princess Anne and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, to watch his cousin Zara Phillips compete in the British eventing team on her horse High Kingdom after making her Olympic Games debut yesterday (29.07.12).
