In the video, William, 40, with Princess Charlotte on his lap, congratulates the Lionesses on reaching the final, before ending the video Charlotte says ‘good luck and hope you win’ as she waves to the camera.

In a social media post, the royal added, “Good luck tonight Lionesses, we cheer you all on!”

England men’s captain Harry Kane also paid tribute to the Lionesses saying: “Hi Lionesses, just wanted to wish you all the best for today’s game against Germany.

“It’s going to be an incredible experience, an incredible atmosphere at Wembley. I can’t wait to be there myself, so I wish you all the best.

“Good luck, go get that win, the whole country is behind you.”

England take on eight-time champions Germany on Sunday in a bid to clinch their first major trophy in women’s football history.

On Sunday, the Lionesses will seek revenge against Germany after losing 6-2 in the Euro 2009 final.

Before the match, Boris Johnson and Sir Keir Starmer also paid tribute to the team.

The Prime Minister said: “Your passion for the game, your tenacity in difficult places and above all your amazing talent on the pitch have already created a summer of fantastic memories for millions of us.

“You can see it in the sold-out stadiums, in the crowded fan zones, in the young children dancing madly to Sweet Caroline and the viewers who saw the records crumble almost as completely as Sweden’s defense in the semi-finals. .”

Mr Johnson added that: “In all pride it is the lionesses who hunt ruthlessly as a team and take home their prize, and I am sure that will be the case against Germany.”

Sir Keir added: “As a parent, I know how vital it is to see strong and successful role models in sport. What you and your team have achieved this summer will not only be celebrated as a big moment for English football, but as a moment that encouraged and inspired young women like my own daughter.

He added, “It’s coming home!”

London Mayor Sadiq Khan also paid tribute to the team and issued a warning about the number of fans attending the Trafalgar Square Fan Party.

England beat Sweden 4-0 in the semi-final at Bramall Lane on Tuesday and will be looking to upset the odds against a side who have won 21 of their 27 encounters.
