The Duke of Cambridge delighted fans on Saturday after sending a rare personal tweet to the British and Irish Lions rugby union team
The Duke of Cambridge delighted royal fans on Saturday by sending a rare personal tweet to wish the British and Irish Lions good luck in their first test game.
Prince William is a keen sports fan and couldn’t resist passing on his good wishes to the rugby union team ahead of their battle against South Africa in Cape Town.
“Wishing the @Lionsofficial team all the best ahead of the opening Test in Cape Town! It's brilliant to see @AlunWynJones back fit and healthy, ready to lead the team. W,” he tweeted.

William was referring to Welsh rugby player Alun Wyn Jones, who dislocated his shoulder in June during a match against Japan but has made a miraculous recovery and is now back captaining the team.
The Duke of Cambridge used the official Twitter account for himself and the Duchess of Cambridge, @KensingtonRoyal, to share his special message.
Prince William is a huge sports fan
Royal fans were quick to comment on William’s post, with many sharing in his delight that Alun is back on the team. One responded: “@AlunWynJones is a force to be reckoned with. An amazing leader for Wales and BIL.”
A second joked: “Where are you having a pint William? ” A third added: ” My favourite couple his and hers RH have a good day.”
This isn’t the first time William has used the social networking site to send a personal message . Back in June, he took to Twitter again to share his joy at the Euros 2020 finally going ahead after a year of delay.

He wrote: “Finally it’s here! #Euro2020 Wishing all the best to the Home Nations competing this summer – looking forward to a fantastic tournament! W.” The Duke then proceeded to tag @Cymru, @England and @ScotlandNT at the end of his tweet.
Fans were convinced that they knew Prince William – who is President of the Football Association – wouldn’t be able to resist tweeting about such a monumental football occasion.
One wrote: “I was waiting for your tweet” and another said: “I knew you would tweet about it.”
