Taking to Twitter, royal observers were quick to point out the girl’s absence.

If the Lionesses win, it would be England’s first win in a major football tournament since 1966.
Flt Lt Lauren, who helped train the first female Afghan pilots when deployed to Afghanistan, described watching the English team as “inspiring”.

“It has been inspiring to watch the Lionesses progress and I will be cheering them on loudly once I land back at RAF Brize Norton.”
Around 90,000 fans are expected at Wembley Stadium tonight – a record for a European Championship final.
The previous record was set in the 1964 men’s final when 79,115 fans watched Spain host the Soviet Union.
Last year’s men’s final between England and Italy at Wembley was watched by 67,000 spectators, a lower number forced by the coronavirus pandemic.
