Richard Kay, a royal commentator, said: "Harry and William, when they were teenagers, were extremely competitive." In 2016, the tradition seemed to fade after the princes did not appear for the match. Since then, they have not been involved.

in the past, football was not the only sport that brought together the two brothers. When the Princes William and Harry were younger, they played the polo with their father, Prince Charles. In sixty, their father decided to withdraw. On the occasion of an interview, his elder jokedly: "We decided that the pressure to play with his two sons was too strong, we are too good for him."
