William and Harry Play Soccer Over the Holidays (Photos)

At first glance it looks like Where’s Waldo: The Soccer Edition, but take a closer look and you’ll see the world’s favorite princes playing a friendly game of football at Castle Rising in Norfolk, England. Strapping brothers William and Harry played against each other in a friendly soccer game over the Christmas holidays.

Villagers, estate workers, and the princes made up the two teams of red and white stripes vs. solid white. The game ended with a score of 2-2 and the rest of us are left to stand on the sidelines murmuring, “Could they BE any more adorable?”

I ate a whole beefstick and a pound of peanut M&Ms over the holidays instead of playing soccer. How about you?

Here’s how William and Harry spent the holidays:

    Harry, donning red and white striped socks with a white jersey, marks a boundary with a flag while a dog stands guard. I am surprised but, strangely, not repelled by the stark whiteness of his legs.

    I don't know very much about soccer but if you're the Duke of Cambridge and you kind of push someone behind you it doesn't exactly seem fair.

    Pippa's heart sank when Harry proposed to this soccer ball. But it was only a mock-proposal! And a collective sigh of relief was heard around the world.

    William and Harry embrace after the game. They love each other, and we love them. But we'll never be royals. This kind of luxe just ain't for us.
