Princess Charlotte joins her dad in rare video message

Princess Charlotte has joined Prince William in a rare video message as the royal father and daughter wished England's football team good luck in the Euro 2022 women's final.

In the video shared by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on Instagram, William and Charlotte sent a message to the Lionesses, who later made history by winning their first major women's tournament by beating Germany 2-1.

"We both want to wish the Lionesses the best of luck for tonight," William said. 

"You've done amazingly well in the competition and we're rooting for you all the way."

Sitting on her father's lap, Charlotte chimes in with a short and sweet declaration of her own, saying, "Good luck, I hope you win. Bye!" and signing off with a wave.

The women's team responded to the royal message with their gratitude for the well wishes. 

Queen Elizabeth later sent a message of congratulations to England, after the match went into extra time on Sunday.

"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," Her Majesty said in a statement.

"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."

Prince William attended the final match at Wembley, and handed out the trophy to England's winning team.
