Arsenal is the soccer team that leads the preferences of British royalty

Did Queen Elizabeth II like soccer? Yeah, but she wasn’t a fan . What the monarch liked the most were horse racing and some other related sports, such as polo and horse jumping.

The sovereign was the protagonist of the unforgettable moment in football in the United Kingdom, when she presented the Jules Rimmet Cup of world champions to the captain of the English team, Bobby Moore, in the 1966 final . That time at Wembley, the three lions team defeated West Germany 4-2 in extra time.

The Queen had her special taste and it was for Arsenal . The Highbury Park team was even at Buckingham in 2007, following one of his landmark campaigns, and captain Thierry Henry, who is French, introduced each of his teammates to the monarch.

The other rabid Gunners fan is Prince Harry . During a tour of New Zealand he wore the red shirt with white sleeves. When he lived in the UK, he would not miss the English team game at Wembley.

Another football fan of the royal family is Prince William, who is a fan of West Ham United , a team more associated with rock bands and the working class.

The Prince of Wales has been the president of the FA since 2006 , the English football association that is associated with FIFA. He is the one who usually delivers the trophy in the English Cup final.

And the King? The taste of Carlos III is really difficult to predict. He only once told which team he liked and he is not one of the greats. It is about the modest Burnley , who gave the sovereign a lifetime subscription.

Kate Middleton , who is the godmother of the rugby team and also a regular visitor to Wimbledon, also enjoys football and follows one of London’s big teams: Chelsea .
