The Englands Womens National Football Team made history this weekend, and Princess Charlotte, Prince William, and David Beckham's daughter Harper were among the many English supporters cheering them on. Yesterday, the Lionesses won the European championship for the first time since 1966.
Prince William says we both want the Lionesses the best of luck tonight. You've done exceptionally well in the competition and we're all enthralled for you.
Princess Charlotte, who is a huge soccer fan herself and a promising star according to her dad, says, Bye! and smiles and waves at the camera, flaunting her adorable gap-toothed smile.
The Lionesses reached the final of the UEFA European Womens Championship, the main football tournament (or, soccer, as Americans call it) held every four years between national women's teams. The 2022 match was held at Wembley Stadium in England.
Beckham narrates in the video. She shoots, she scores! he continues, as Harper, wearing bright yellow cleats, scores.
Harper says, "Let's go Golden, and bring that cup home!" She is smiling from ear to ear after scoring a goal and spending one-on-one time with her father, who also shares his boys Brooklyn, 23, Romeo, 19, and Cruz, 17.
Beckham adds a little love to the video, and I wish you good luck in the final. Thank you for enthusing my daughter and for inspiring the whole country. Bring your cup home! Harper cheers and Beckham kisses her on the head.
Ed Sheeran and other prominent figures expressed their thanks to the team.
In a 2-1 victory against Germany, the Lionesses won the trophy for England. On Sunday, an unprecedented 87,192 people cheered the women to victory, calling the trophy "my most memorable moment."
The official Lionesses Instagram account posted photos of the women celebrating the victory last night, captioning one post, WE ARE #WEURO2022 CHAMPIONS! and another, YOUR EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS!. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridges official account commented, "Amazing victory!
The adorable father-daughter videos from Prince William and Beckham, the historic attendance, and the historic victory underscore the importance of women-led sports. Seeing individuals, especially famous fathers, support the history-making feats of talented women sets a powerful example.
