However, the third in line to the throne was left with a dead rubber after Roy Hodgson's men were knocked out after just two games in Brazil.

So instead of watching England's first team secure their place in the next round, Harry witnessed the second string play out a meaningless encounter against the Costa Ricans, who were of course already through.

The Prince watched the game in Belo Horizonte as part of a royal tour of Brazil, during which he had also visited some of the sites for the 2016 Olympics, due to be held in Rio de Janeiro.
