Prince William gives speech to young children as he visits St George’s Park on 10th anniversary

Prince William gave a speech to young children at St George's Park.

The Prince of Wales, 40, attended the park in Burton upon Trent to mark the tenth year anniversary of it being the home of English football.

Taking place on Wednesday 5 October morning, youngsters from Christchurch Primary School gathered to listen to the Prince.

The school tweeted: "More excitement. HRH Prince William is at the tournament and our captain Ben has met him on behalf of our team.

"They had a quick chat and HRH gave a big shout-out to all goalkeepers and congratulated those who are brave enough to be in goal."

The 40 year old sported a thick dark blazer jacket with a pale blue shirt, black trousers and brown shoes.

Prince William could be seen carrying decorated cards, as well as a bag.

Players from the deaf team also met with the Prince and explained how they use sign language to conduct half-time talks.

The father of three also met with members of the Coventry City Football Club.

Taking to their Twitter page, the CCFC Community wrote: "We have arrived for the 10 year celebration of St. George’s park.

"Today we have a boys and girl’s team from @CliffordBridge representing @Coventry_City A great opportunity for the boys and girl’s to showcase themselves against other teams across the country @Coventry_City."

They went on to write: "Brilliant start to the day at St. George’s park. A representative from @CliffordBridge meeting Prince William. Some great results for both teams so far! @Coventry_City."

Following his grandmother the Queen's passing, Prince William has been completing duties under his new title, The Prince Of Wales.

During his first speech since becoming next in line to the throne, the Prince addressed global leaders at London’s Science Museum on Tuesday 4 October.

Speaking about wildlife crime, he said: "Our natural world is one of our greatest assets.

"It is a lesson I learnt from a young age, from my father and grandfather, both committed naturalists in their own right, and also from my much-missed grandmother, who cared so much for the natural world.

"In times of loss, it is a comfort to honour those we miss through the work we do. I take great comfort from the progress we are making to end the illegal wildlife trade."

The Queen died at her Balmoral estate in Scotland on Thursday 8 September at the age of 96.

Announcing her death, Buckingham palace said in a statement: "The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.

"The King and the Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow."
