Prince William 'disappoints' fans at UEFA Women's Euros 2022 final with this missing detail.

Prince William has 'disappointed' fans by not taking his daughter Princess Charlotte with him to watch England score victory over Germany in the UEFA Women's Euros 2022.

The Duke of Cambridge teamed up with Charlotte, seven, over the weekend to issue a heartfelt video good luck message to the Lionesses squad, much to the delight of fans.

But despite fans calling for the Prince to bring his daughter along to the final held at Wembley on Sunday, he attended the match alone and sat beside UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin.

Prince William said, "Sensational. An incredible win @lionesses and the whole nation couldn’t be prouder of you all. Wonderful to see history in the making tonight at Wembley, congratulations! W."

In previous sporting events Prince William has taken son Prince George, nine, to watch the England v Wales Six Nations rugby match where he inherited this trait, and also England Euros 2020 final where his video was dubbed the 'best bit'.

And after his sweet video clip with Charlotte, encouraging the squad to bring the trophy home, fans have been left disappointed that she wasn't able to watch it live in the stadium.

One fan asked, "Where did Charlotte watch it ???" to which another replied, "one would assume at home..."

Another fan replied, "One was hoping to see her jumping around next to her dad."

A second fan agreed, "Since George went to a mens’ match last year, it would seem fitting that Charlotte would watch the women. Disappointed."

And a third fan added, "Would have been wonderful to see Princess Charlotte there to congratulate them!"

But one fan defended the decision and suggested reasons for why the Cambridge youngster might not have been present at Wembley. They wrote, "That would be difficult to William without Catherine.. to think Charlotte is 7 there's a time she needs to go to loo and William can't go in there to accompany her. I think if Catherine don't have engagement at the same day probably Charlotte will be there as well."

Kate Middleton was in Plymouth to attend the 1851 Trusts Protect our Future programme which equips young people with skills and knowledge to understand climate science and take positive action, protecting nature, people, our oceans and the planet.

But regardless of where Princess Charlotte watched the match, another fan commented, "Guess what Princess Charlotte’s going to want to do! 💪⚽️"

And the Queen even showed her support for the women's squad when she issued a message via the Royal Family social media. It reads, "My warmest congratulations, and those of my family, go to you all on winning the European Women’s Football Championships. It is a significant achievement for the entire team, including your support staff. 
"The Championships and your performance in them have rightly won praise. However, your success goes far beyond the trophy you have so deservedly earned. You have all set an example that will be an inspiration for girls and women today, and for future generations. It is my hope that you will be as proud of the impact you have had on your sport as you are of the result today."
