Prince William enjoys some downtime as he cheers on Aston Villa

Prince William was spotted enjoying a football game on Wednesday night as he watched his favourite team Aston Villa play against Man City.

The 39-year-old royal faced the chilly temperatures to attend the match at Villa Park wearing a khaki coat and a striped scarf in the colours of the club.

Looking pleased with the progress of the game from the stands, the Duke of Cambridge stood up at one point and clapped his hands in support – however it was not enough for Aston Villa in the end, as they lost 2-1 to the opposing side.

Prince George experienced watching his dad’s favourite team play for the first time in October 2019, however the eight-year-old had to miss out on this match.

Prince William’s football appearance comes a day after he visited refugees in Leeds who were evacuated from Afghanistan, to hear their stories and praise the communities who have been supporting them in the UK.

The Royal also joined his brother Prince Harry in speaking with the recipients of the Legacy Award before the ceremony is to be held at their late mother Princess Diana’s family home in Althorp on 9 December in her memory.

Prince William honoured ten of the winners at Kensington Palace while Prince Harry greeted nine others via video link over in California.

The Duke of Cambridge looked content enjoying downtime outside of his commitments watching the match, offering up a different picture to his reported reactions of late.

Last month, Prince William and Kate Middleton were left unhappy with the BBC after airing documentary the Princes and the Press which, according to their Royal statement of the programme, presented “overblown and unfounded claims.”

News emerged after that the Duke felt frustrated with TV network for working with Netflix show The Crown to “commercialise” Martin Bashir’s Panorama interview with Princess Diana, which Prince William has previously condemned.

The streaming service confirmed to The Telegraph that the BBC gave the green light for the show to portray scenes from the late Royal’s televised conversation.

“It’s unbelievable that in the middle of a major fight with William and the Royal Family over its documentary, the BBC would allow Netflix to film on their property,” a source told The Sun.

“The BBC and Netflix are joining forces to do the one thing William doesn’t want – dramatising the Panorama interview which is a part of his life he has said he does not wish to revisit.”
