Prince William to attend England vs Denmark football match at Wembley without Catherine who remains in isolation


The Duke of Cambridge will attend the semi-final of the European Championships on Wednesday evening at Wembley to watch England take on Denmark for a place in Sunday’s final.

Prince William has previously attended England’s final 16 match against Germany, also held at Wembley.

On this occasion he was joined by his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, and eldest child, Prince George.

It is unclear whether Prince George will attend the match on Wednesday, although it is extremely unlikely that Catherine will be able to watch the match.

The Duchess of Cambridge is self isolating at home after coming into close contact with somebody who has tested positive for Covid-19.

Kensington Palace said on Monday that the Duchess does not have any symptoms, but is “following all relevant government guidelines”.

A spokesperson said: “Last week the Duchess of Cambridge came into contact with someone who has subsequently tested positive for Covid-19.

“Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant government guidelines and is self-isolating at home.”

Her Royal Highness is in isolation for ten days meaning she will miss the football, and will also likely miss the Wimbledon finals over the weekend.

The Duchess has received both dosages of her Covid jab.

Prince William has been President of the the Football Association, the governing body of English football, since May 2006.

In that time, he has become heavily involved in football’s governance and has been an advocate for anti-racism campaigns in the sport.

If England wins their semi-final match against Denmark on Friday, it will be the first time they will have reached the final of a major football tournament since the 1966 World Cup.
