The Duke of Cambridge’s letter to Santa this year contains something that many of us would also like for Christmas, and it’s a gift that money can’t buy. 

The football-loving Prince has said that his dream gift would be a win for his favourite team, Aston Villa, on Boxing Day. 

Answering questions from young cancer patients receiving treatment at The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, for the hospital’s radio show, William said: “I've not had much time to think about it because I've been thinking about my children and what they want for Christmas. But if I had to choose right now, then I would say I want my favourite team, which is Aston Villa, to win their football match on Boxing Day."

It’s a wish that all footy fans can empathise with, but if William is to get his ideal present, his team are going to have to overcome a pretty hefty obstacle, as Villa are taking on the current European Champions, Chelsea. 

Villa, however, are in good form in the Premier League following the appointment of former Liverpool legend, Steven Gerrard, as manager, and Chelsea have been stuttering a little of late, so there is a decent chance that William might just get his wish! 

Many games have been called off due to a surge in Covid-19 cases over the last couple of weeks, but following a meeting yesterday, (20th December) Premier League clubs decided to attempt to fulfil their festive fixtures despite the ongoing disruption.

Prince William has been President of the Royal Marsden for 14 years. His late mother, Princess Diana, had previously been President.

During his chat with Radio Marsden, the Royal also spoke about what Christmas would be like if he were in charge of the festive holiday. He said: “I think I'd have to make sure everyone could enjoy it.

“So, we'd have to bring everyone together and have a big party and there would be no Covid and there would certainly be no cancer in the world if I was in charge of Christmas for the day.”
