The Prince of Wales is expected to remain President of the Football Association of England for the time being

The FA are hopeful the newly knighted Prince of Wales will remain president of the governing body throughout the World Cup, which will mean a potential test of his loyalty when England meet Wales in Qatar.

Prince William has been President of the FA since 2006 and while Buckingham Palace is yet to confirm he will retain the role after inheriting his new title from King Charles III, FA sources are confident he will stay on in the short term at least .

Unlike his father, Prince William is a huge football fan, having supported Aston Villa since childhood and regularly attending England games.

He also attended the England women’s training camp ahead of this summer’s European Championships and was at Wembley in July when the Lionesses beat Germany in the final to lift the country’s first major trophy in 56 years.

England meet Wales on 29 November in the final Group B, a repeat of their encounter at Euro 2016 in Lens.

Although England won that game, Wales reached the semi-finals under Chris Coleman, prompting Prince William to write a congratulatory letter to the players, praising them for progressing further in the tournament than England.

While Prince William is an England fan, he supports Wales in rugby.
