Crown Prince of Jordan Hussein bin Abdullah II kicked back to enjoy England’s World Cup victory against Panama with Prince William at the Beit Al Urdun Palace on Sunday night.
The pair, who avoided spoilers of the result all day, watched a rerun of the match as the Duke of Cambridge arrived in Jordan just as the second half between the two teams began. A hat-trick from Harry Kane helped England thrash Panama 6-1 in the group stages.
Prince Hussein published a picture on his official Instagram account with a caption saying: “Having a relaxing time with His Royal Highness Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, after his first day in #OurJordan.”
Kensington Palace also tweeted two pictures of the duke and the crown prince casually dressed and sitting side by side on a sofa watching the game on a large screen.
Prince William couldn't watch the @England match live and avoided finding out the score all afternoon. He sat down with the Crown Prince of Jordan to watch a rerun after dinner at the Beit Al Urdun Palace.— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) June 24, 2018

The British prince, who is president of the FA, is on a five-day visit to the Middle East and is scheduled to visit Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories – the first time a member of the British royal family has visited on behalf of the Government.
