Prince William Aston Villa fan – future kings can be fickle too
The fact that Prince William finally got to see his first match at Villa Park was probably the ONLY point of interest from yet another uninspiring performance by Paul Lambert’s Aston Villa in the 0-0 home draw against Sunderland.
The Prince had been to Aston Villa’s FA Cup semi-final against Bolton back in 2000, but had never experienced the full wonder of visiting Villa Park in B6.
It’s perhaps a shame he didn’t turn up a few months ago when Villa last played Sunderland at home. Still, at least he got the full reality of being a Villa supporter in recent years.
As you’ll see from the following pictures and captions, Prince William starts the game off as a future King, but after 90 minutes ends up a typical Aston Villa supporter.
Just don’t call him ‘fickle’ or you might lose your head.
