Harry plays festive football match

Prince Harry showed off his football skills when he joined Norfolk villagers for a Christmas Eve football match.

Harry is spending part of the festive period with other members of the Royal Family who are enjoying a traditional break at the Queen's private Norfolk estate of Sandringham.

He played in the same fixture last year for the Sandringham estate workers who took on villagers from neighbouring Castle Rising.

But this year he was not joined by the Duke of Cambridge, who is enjoying the festive break at his home in nearby Anmer Hall.

Harry was a key member of the team, making tackles and getting involved in the action.

He is known to prefer rugby over football but his enthusiasm for the game was clear to see.

Wearing a yellow and black strip, the prince looked at ease among the other players.

It is thought Harry was playing for the workers employed on his grandmother's estate - who ran out easy winners.
