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 spectators cheering them on. Yesterday, the Lionesses won the European championship for the first time since 1966.
Prince William says we both wish the Lionesses the best of luck tonight. You've done fantastic job in the competition and you've been enthralled throughout the whole journey.
Princess Charlotte, who is a huge soccer fan herself and a potential star according to her dad, says, Bye! and smiles and waves at the camera, flaunting her adorable gap-toothed smile.
The Lionesses advanced to the final of the UEFA European Womens Championship, the main football event (or, soccer, as Americans refer to it) held every four years between national women's teams. The 2022 match was held at Wembley Stadium in England.
Beckham narrates the final-minute free kick for the Lionesses in the video. She shoots, she scores! He continues, as Harper, wearing bright yellow cleats, scores.
Harper says to the camera: "Go Golden, bring that cup home!" She is smiling from ear to ear after scoring a goal and spending one-on-one time with her dad, who also shares his two boys, Brooklyn, 23, Romeo, 19, and Cruz, 17.
Beckham extends his congratulations to Harper and the whole country in his video. I wish you the best of luck in the final. Bring the cup home! Harper cheers and Beckham gives her a quick kiss on her head.
Other famous personalities wished the team good luck, including Ed Sheeran.
England won the trophy with a 2-1 victory against Germany. A record breaking 87,192 supporters cheered the women to victory on Sunday, where England captain Leah Williamson described it as her "most enjoyable moment."
The official Lionesses Instagram account posted pictures 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 whole nation could not be more proud of you all!
Prince William and Beckham's adorable father-daughter videos, the historic attendance, and the triumphant victory underscore the need for women-led sports. Seeing individuals, especially famous fathers, support the history-making feats of talented women, sets a powerful example.
