PRINCESS Charlotte roared her support for the England Lionesses alongside dad Prince William ahead of tonight’s Euro final.

The royal, seven, beamed as she wished the team good luck as they prepare to take on Germany at Wembley at 5pm. Princess Charlotte has wished the Lionesses good luck.

Wearing a short-sleeved polka dot top, Charlotte said: “Good luck, I hope you win. Bye”.

Charlotte ‘s dad William – the FA President – added: “We both want to wish the Lionesses the best of luck for tonight.

“You’ve done amazingly well in the competition and we’re routing for you all the way.”

The England Lionesses have inspired a generation of girls with their incredible campaign to the Euro 2022 final.

Back-heeling heroine Alessia Russo and teammates, Leah Williamson, Beth Mead and Millie Bright have become household names thanks to their brilliant tournament.

The FA expects 120,000 more girls to be playing the sport by 2024 due to England’s success.

The team will take on Germany tonight in front of a historic crowd at Wembley as the team hope to secure their first major trophy.

Around 90,000 fans are expected to pile in to watch the action under the stadium’s famous arch.

Pubs will be packed out across the country as fans dare to dream the women can finally bring it home.

It’s predicted Brits will spend £46.1million in boozers today with 8.7million pints downed.

Around 7,000 people are expected to flock to London’s Trafalgar Square to watch the action at the designated fan park.

An all-women RAF crew will perform a fly-past above Wembley at 4.57pm, immediately after the national anthems are played.

The final is expected to be the most-watched telly event of the year with a record-breaking 19.5 million viewers.

David Beckham was among England stars past and present wishing the women luck today.

He shared a photo of daughter Harper smashing a ball into the back of the net as he wished the women luck.

The youngster says: “Let’s go girls and bring that cup home.”

Beckham added: “Thank you for inspiring my daughter and thank you for inspiring the whole country.”

England captain also Harry Kane shared his support today, saying: “Hi Lionesses, I just wanted to wish you all the best for today’s game against Germany.

“It’s going to be an incredible experience, incredible atmosphere at Wembley.

“I can’t wait to be there myself, so I’m wishing you all the best.

“Good luck, go get that win, the whole country’s behind you.

“Really looking forward to it, so all the best.”

ROAR TO VICTORY

Boris Johnson also threw his weight behind the team as he praised them for inspiring a nation of young girls.

He said: “Your passion for the game, your tenacity in tricky spots, and above all your astounding talent on the pitch have already created a summer of fantastic memories for millions of us.

“You can see it in the sold-out stadium, in the packed fan zones, in the small children dancing wildly to Sweet Caroline and the TV viewing figures that have seen records crumbling almost as comprehensively as Sweden’s defence did in the semi-final.

“In any pride it is the Lionesses who ruthlessly hunt as a team and bring their prize back home – and I am sure that will be the case against Germany.”

The PM said no matter the outcome, the “pitches and playgrounds and parks of this country will be filled as never before with girls and women who know beyond any shadow of a doubt that football is not just for boys, it really is for everyone”.

Boris added: “That is all down to you and what you have already achieved.

“And so, when the referee’s whistle blows tonight, I hope that you are every bit as proud of yourselves as England is of you.”

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said they had become “strong, successful role models in sport”.

He sent a message, saying: “What you have accomplished this summer will not just be celebrated as a great moment for English football but as one that encouraged and inspired young women like my own daughter.”

England’s 1966 World Cup hero Geoff Hurst, whose hat-trick helped sink West Germany, branded them “absolutely fantastic”.

He told Times Radio: “Getting into the final is fantastic.”
