Royal two to grace England-Algeria match

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Pretoria - Princes William and Harry will cheer on England when they take on Algeria on Friday in Cape Town.

The two, who are on a joint six-day joint African tour to promote their charity interests, will visit various Southern African countries, including Botswana and Lesotho.

William, 27, and Harry, 25, will take to the stands at Cape Town's impressive Green Point stadium to watch England in their second Group C match.

The English had a disappointing opening game on Saturday, drawing with the USA, but the royals will be hoping that the team can earn their first win of the tournament.

William, who is also the president of the Football Association in England, and his brother are expected to meet members of FIFA's executive committee, as part of England's bid to host the 2018 World Cup.

Prince William and Prince Harry previously visited South Africa in October 2008 while undertaking the Enduro charity bike ride.
