Queen’s good luck message to England team 55 years after she presented World Cup

The Queen has sent a good luck message to the England team ahead of the Euro 2020 final against Italy tomorrow night at Wembley.

The Three Lions will face Italy in the final of Euro 2020 on Sunday at 8pm after beating Denmark in the semi-finals during extra-time.

With just over 24 hours to go, the Queen wrote a letter to manager Gareth Southgate in which she recalled her memory of presenting the World Cup to England in 1966 and seeing the joy it brought.

She wrote: “Fifty-five years ago I was fortunate to present the World Cup to Bobby Moore and saw what it meant to the players, management and support staff to reach and win the final of a major international football tournament.

“I want to send my congratulations and that of my family to you all on reaching the final of the European Championships, and send my good wishes for tomorrow with the hope that history will record not only your success but also the spirit, commitment and pride with which you have conducted yourselves.”

The Queen has not been spotted at any matches during Euro 2020 and, according to a Buckingham Palace spokesperson, an announcement will be made soon if the monarch plans on attending the game, reports MyLondon. 

Prince William is a big fan of the beautiful game and, having been seen at previous England games and cup finals, it is thought that the prince is likely to attend the final.
