Prince William returned to work 24 hours on from the crunch Sandringham summit about his brother’s royal future and discussed his fears of Aston Villa going down, an FA chief has said.
Wills joined the Queen and Prince Charles at the Norfolk estate yesterday to discuss the decision by Harry and Meghan Markle to ‘step back’ as senior royals.
And the future king, 37, also discussed the fortunes of beloved club Aston Villa with FA bigwig and ex-Manchester United chief executive David Gill.
“I’ve been lucky enough to meet (William) a few times and talk about football, he was more worried about Aston Villa and how they’re going to finish this season,” former accountant Mr Gill, 62, said.
“We had a nice chat about football, he’s a keen follower of it.”
Dean Smith’s troubled side languish in 18th place in the Premier League having been thrashed 6-1 on Sunday by Manchester City and are facing a relegation battle.
William has been photographed at Aston Villa games, both home and away, in recent years.
