King Charles III has extended his congratulations to the England football team for their advancement to the final of Euro 2024, humorously advising them to secure a win without the tension of last-minute surprises. The British monarch conveyed his 'warmest congratulations' to the team following their 2-1 victory over The Netherlands on Wednesday night and offered his 'very best wishes' for their upcoming final against Spain on Sunday. He reminded the players to consider the nation's heart health, referencing the intense moments in previous matches, including a late equalizer against Slovakia, a penalty shootout win against Switzerland, and Ollie Watkins' decisive goal in the 90th minute that propelled them to the final.

'If I might suggest securing victory without the need for any last-minute heroics or another penalties drama, I am confident that the nation's collective heart rate and blood pressure would be significantly eased,' he remarked. 'Good luck, England.'

Prince William, the president of the Football Association and a supporter of Birmingham club, specifically commended Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins for his crucial contribution off the bench. 'What a beauty, Ollie! Congratulations England! #EURO2024 Finalists,' the Prince of Wales tweeted. William is expected to attend the final in Berlin.

Prime Minister Keir Starmer, an Arsenal fan who caught some of the match during a NATO summit in Washington, has also confirmed his attendance at the final.
