The Duke of Cambridge will “do his best” to attend the final if England Women reach the final of this summer’s European Championship.

Mark Sampson’s Lionesses squad were invited to a lunchtime reception hosted by William at Kensington Palace before flying to Holland in advance of the competition’s opening on Sunday.

The Duke, who is president of the Football Association, chatted with players and staff before engaging in a penalty shoot-out with the Lionesses and a local girls team.

“I’m sure you’ll nail it, and if you get there I’ll do my best to get to the final,” William said to England captain Steph Houghton.
