England’s lionesses could one day have a future queen to hold goal as Princess Charlotte asked her father to tell the squad about her talents.

The Duke of Cambridge visited the side at their training base in Burton-upon-Trent earlier today as they prepare for next month’s Euros on home soil.

While he watched the team being put through their paces in a light session, he also took part in a shooting session before chatting to the players.

After the visit, Prince William, President of the Football Association, was presented with three shirts bearing his children’s names by captain Leah Williamson.

Prince William thanked them for the gift and revealed Cambridge could one day be written on the back of a goalkeeper shirt as seven-year-old Charlotte is dying to get between the sticks.

He said: “Charlotte wanted me to tell you that she’s really good in goal.

“She said please tell them that. Rising star for the future.”

He previously described the players as “pioneers”.

He added: “There’s a big tournament coming up, it’s exciting and everyone is looking forward to it. They are all pioneers of women’s sport and women’s football.

“Much luck. They’re going to have a lot of viewers, good TV – it’s going to be a great summer, it really is.

“I’ll keep an eye on what you’re doing and the games with the kids and I’ll try to come along where I can to lend my support.

“We’re all so proud of you guys and you should be really proud of where you’ve got yourself.

“This is the pinnacle of what lies ahead for you over the next few weeks and I know you will make us all proud.”

The final squad for this summer’s tournament was announced by head coach Sarina Wiegman.

Among the surprises was the departure of Steph Houghton, England’s captain in the last three major tournaments, who has not played since January through injury.

Lucy Staniforth, Katie Zelem, Niamh Charles and Sandy MacIver also miss the home tournament.

Wiegman said in a statement: “I’m thrilled at what’s possible for this group.

“We all know this is a huge opportunity that we must seize with both hands. The chance to represent the nation on such a big stage on home soil is a joy.

“This group has shown so far that they are ready to give their all in every training session, in every meeting and in every game.

“Making the final selection is always difficult because we know the talent and commitment of each and every player.

“Cohesion is a big part of what we’re about and from every player in the squad to my outstanding support team and with the strong support of everyone at the FA and our fans we are committed to making this summer a memorable one . ”
