Actress Lisa Riley, 46, of Emmerdale, admitted on Twitter that she cried while watching the England team’s historic victory at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.
The Duke of Cambridge watched England defeat Germany in the Women’s UEFA Euro 2022 final with Prince William, 40, also there.
Additionally, it became the nation’s first significant football triumph since winning the World Cup in 1966 against the same opposition.
Following the England team’s remarkable triumph, the Mandy Dingle actress applauded Prince William’s thoughtful move on the microblogging website.
The Duke of Cambridge, who is the president of the Football Association, the entity that governs soccer in England, attended the highlight event at Wembley Stadium in London.
A record 87,000 spectators watched the Lionesses defeat Germany 2-1 in the European Championship’s final, which set attendance records for both the women’s and men’s competitions.
In response to her 132,000 fans, Lisa wrote: “Prince William hugging the athletes made me weep so hard. The word “champions” in its genuine sense. You @Lionesses have the support of the entire nation; you are an asset to England and football. BRAVO #Lionesses #LionessesLive!”
Many of the social media users who commented on the post agreed with the Dales star.
