Jordan’s crown prince kicks back with Prince William to watch England thrash Panama at the World Cup

  • The pair watched a rerun of the match as the Duke of Cambridge arrived in Jordan just as the second half between the two teams began
  • The British prince is on a five-day visit to the Middle East and is scheduled to visit Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories

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.

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.

LONDON: A picture of a smiling Prince George was released by Britain’s royal family on Saturday as Queen Elizabeth’s great grandson, who is third in line to the throne, prepares to celebrate his fifth birthday.
George, the oldest of Prince William and Kate’s three children, was photographed in the garden of his home in Clarence House, central London, after the christening of his brother Louis earlier this month. George turns five on Sunday.
The Daily Mail reported that George was spending his birthday on the Caribbean island of Mustique in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines with his family.
