Prince William congratulates Liverpool on incredible Barcelona comeback

Wil Jones

“An incredible result, what a comeback!”

Liverpool’s astonishing comeback from 3-0 to beat Barcelona 4-3 on aggregate was one of those incredible footballing moments that goes much further than just the world of sport.

It was all everyone was talking about on Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning.

It even went as far as Kensington Palace.

On Tuesday evening, the official Twitter account for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, sent out a royal congratulations to Liverpool on their victory.

Well done Liverpool – an incredible result, what a comeback! W

That ‘W’ at the end suggests it was sent by Prince William himself.

Most tweets from the account are clearly scheduled by a social media team, updating followers on various royal visits and jaunts by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Eagle-eyed Liverpool fans have spotted that this message was actually sent from an iPhone – probably William’s own phone.

Prince William currently serves as the President-Designate of the English FA, a figurehead position that has always been held by a member of the Royal Family. He took over the role from his uncle, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, in 2005.
