Real reason Prince William didn’t head to Germany to watch England | Royal | News

Prince William has been spotted cheering on England from the sidelines throughout Euro 2024, but during their semi-final win over the Netherlands on Wednesday night he was nowhere to be seen.

No doubt the Prince will have been eagerly watching from home, but he was unable to make the trip to Dortmund to see them play in person as he has an important UK engagement today.

William will be marking the first year anniversary of his Homewards project with a visit to Lambeth in south London, where he launched the campaign last June.

His ultimate aim is to help tackle the issue of homelessness over five years by putting a stop to the problem before it begins to take hold.

The project has been spread out over six sites in the UK – Aberdeen, Bournemouth, Christchurch & Poole, London, Newport, Northern Ireland and Sheffield.

The aim of the project is to build collaboration between local communities and authorities to locate and fix problems which could spiral into homelessness.

Bespoke plans of action between the public, private and voluntary sectors will now be put into place across each location as the project enters its second year.

William is expected to say in a speech later today: “It’s fantastic to be back in Lambeth, where a year ago we launched Homewards and began our journey of working together to demonstrate that it is possible to end homelessness…

It is expected that William will be able to travel to Berlin on Sunday to watch England play Spain in the Euro 2024 final, following their stunning 2-1 win over the Netherlands.

King Charles also released a statement congratulating the team on their win: “My wife and I join all our family in wishing you the warmest congratulations on reaching the final of the U.E.F.A. European Championship – and in sending our very best wishes for Sunday’s match.

“If I may encourage you to secure victory before the need for any last minute wonder-goals or another penalties drama, I am sure the stresses on the nation’s collective heart rate and blood pressure would be greatly alleviated!

“Good luck, England. Charles R.”
