Prince William, heir to the throne, jetted off to Germany to cheer on England against Denmark in Euro 2024 match a day before his 42nd birthday.

The Prince of Wales takes solo flight as Catherine is still away from public duties while she continues her treatment for cancer.

The Prince of Wales, who turned 42 on Friday (June 21), will watch Gareth Southgate’s side in their second group stage match at the Frankfurt Arena on Thursday afternoon.

The Princess of Wales hopes William will return to her to celebrate his big day as Kate and their three children have a surprise for the Prince on his auspicious occasion.

The royal, who is president of the FA and a fan of Premier League side Aston Villa, presented shirts to the England squad before the team left for Germany, making a surprise visit to St George’s Park, England’s national football centre in Burton upon Trent.

William's younger son, Prince Loui has urged the players to "eat twice the amount" to secure their bid for Euros glory.

The future King is also hoping for an early birthday present from the Three Lions on Thursday as he headed to Germany to join thousands of England fans cheering on the team as they take on Denmark in the Euros.

England’s 1-0 win in their first game against Serbia — while group rivals Denmark and Slovenia could only draw — means they already top the group. Victory against Denmark would see them through to the last 16, with one group game still left to play.
