Princess Charlotte is already as athletic as her mother: she plays tennis and also counts ballet, horse riding and gymnastics among her many extracurricular activities.
According to City & Country.
As such, the last gift offered to him by a royal fan via Prince William was particularly well chosen. During the Duke of Cambridge’s visit to the Heart of Midlothian Football Club in Edinburgh on his second day with the Duchess in Scotland, a member of staff presented him with three small burgundy football shirts.
The one above, and therefore the one that was photographed, bore Charlotte’s name and age. Of course, Princes George and Louis also have their own jerseys. Charlotte has also drawn attention as it is unfortunately still not clear whether girls are included in the sport.
In a video of the interaction posted by Newsweekthe duke can be seen laughing when he realizes Charlotte’s name is written on the shirt.
The staff member then says, “So you said you don’t have a Scottish team…” TBH, after this amazing gift, I think the Duke will have no choice but to become a Heart of Midlothian fan.
The royal visited the Football Club to learn more about the ‘Changing Room’ programme, launched by SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health), which promotes men’s mental health and wellbeing in football.
On Instagram, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wrote: “At @heartofmidlothianfc in Scotland I heard about the innovative ‘Changing Room’ football project this #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek
“The work of clubs and their community foundations to prioritize the mental health of players, staff and fans is having a meaningful and life-changing impact – something I’ve had the pleasure of seeing first hand. at Tynecastle today.”
