Prince Charles backs England to Win for Euros 2020

The Prince of Wales has backed England to win the Euros after showing off his cricket skills during his final day of his week-long tour of Wales.

On a visit to a pub in South Wales, Charles, 72, told regulars he would be watching the final on Sunday at home, saying: "It would be marvellous if they won."

Colin Morgan, who spoke to the future King at the Ponthir House Inn in Ponthir, near Newport, said: "He said he wouldn't be going to Wembley, but his eldest son [Prince William] would be. And he said 'It's not good for the nerves, watching England play'.

Earlier Charles showed that, if England are in need of a penalty taker during their big match, he has the skills for the job.

The heir to the throne showed off his ball control when he met young entrepreneurs supported in starting their businesses by the Cardiff office of The Prince's Trust.

The Prince got chatting about sport after joining in with a game of boules in the car park of the village pub, which has become a central part of the community over lockdown. As he crouched, standing in a plastic hoop, to roll his ball towards the jack, he giggled.

"Do I have to get right down to do this? That's a test one!" he said as the ball rolled slowly.

"Oh, you can chuck it up in the air! There you go, I knew I shouldn’t have had the Butty Bach,”" he added.

As Charles walked away from the bowls giggling, he shrugged and joked: "It's all absolute balls to me!"
