Day 4, June 18, Cape Town
A paediatric hospital visit, and it’s off to a disappointing World Cup match…
Prince William and Prince Harry traveled to Cape Town hoping to see an England win after a disappointing opening 1-1 draw with the USA. The princes had predicted a victiory for England, with William urging the team to ‘win, win, win’. But sadly, it turned into a goalless draw against Algeria.
A professional lip reader said Prince William branded England’s game “a mess.” Though when asked about England’s performance, William, who is president of the FA, spoke instead about the fans, praising them for the way they got behind their team, despite the booing towards the end. ‘You could hear the England fans over the vuvuzelas which is quite impressive because there is quite a noise from vuvuzelas,’ he said.
Prince Harry was similarly upbeat. “It was a draw, we can still top the group, which is fantastic news. We are all really looking forward to next week. A win is a win next week no matter how many we score. It would be nice to see the team really enjoying it and actually smiling and playing football, the football that we all know they can play.”

David Beckham, Prince William and Prince Harry were all handsome smiles at a reception Saturday to back England’s bid to host the 2018 World Cup. Talking about the fan who managed to get into the team’s dressing room, William joked that he and Harry let the intruder in by leaving the door open.
Soon to Come: TV interview with the Princes…
Watch for a 30-minute interview with Prince William and Prince Harry for ITN, to be broadcast later this week. Here’s a preview:
Prince Harry has revealed that he thinks about his late mother Princess Diana ‘every day’ – and wants to live in Africa because it is the only place on earth where he can truly be himself. Harry, who vowed when he was 18 that he would continue Diana’s humanitarian work with AIDS victims in Africa, also said that he knows his role in the hierarchy of the Royal Family: “supporting his slightly balding brother” Prince William.
The Princes used the 30-minute programme to talk about their love of Africa and the charity work they have been carrying out in some of the poorest countries in the world.
