Kate Middleton 'Secretly' Told Eight-Year-Old Boy Which Football Team She Supports - And It's Not The Same As Prince William
| Last updated
The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton ‘let slip’ her football allegiance belongs to Premier League side Chelsea during an exchange with an eight-year-old boy.
The 40-year-old is expected to become the queen consort when her husband, Prince William, becomes king of the United Kingdom.
Kate and the Duke of Cambridge have often been spotted cheering on England with Prince George, who is third in line to the throne after Prince Charles and William.
However, the football-mad royal family doesn’t necessarily see eye to eye on which team to support at club level, with William’s loyalty lying with Aston Villa.
Prince George has followed in his father’s footsteps and offered his royal seal of approval to the Birmingham-based side.
And Kate’s father-in-law, Charles, previously broke his silence to reveal that he is a supporter of Premier League side Burnley.
During a children’s charity event in 2015, the Duchess of Cambridge revealed her love for the Blues to a little boy.
Kate, who tied the knot with William in 2011, bonded with Rjay Bryan over their support for Chelsea at the Anna Freud Centre Christmas party.
“We high fived because she supports Chelsea and I support Chelsea,” Bryan said, who was eight at the time.
“I love people who support Chelsea.”
Kate, whose uncle Gary Goldsmith is also an avid Chelsea fan, has been known to cheer on eight-year-old George when he plays football.
“Kate is a regular on the sidelines at George’s football matches, often with William by her side,” a source told Now To Love.
“They are just like any proud parents cheering their kids on.”
The mum-of-three and William welcomed the birth of their second child, Princess Charlotte, in 2015 before the arrival of Prince Louis in 2018.
The Queen does not share the same football allegiance as Kate, William or Charles, with Her Majesty believed to be a West Ham fan.
