Prince William reveals the only time hes ever cried watching sport

Prince William has opened up and revealed the only sporting event that has ever made him cry, and detailed the important lessons he hopes that sports will teach his three young children.

William made the revelation during a surprise appearance on Mike Tindall’s podcast The Good, The Bad & The Rugby, along with his wife Kate Middleton and Princess Anne.

During their chat with former England rugby player Mike, and his co-hosts James Haskell and Alex Payne, William said the “only time” he ever cried while watching sport was when his cousin Zara Tindall, Mike's wife, won the European championships.

Prince William said: “The only time I’ve ever cried when watching sport was when Zara won I think it was the European championship.”

He continued: “I was down in Exmore at the time camping. We were all huddling around the phone watching it. She was there, she was blubbing away, the flag was going up… I was in pieces.”

Zara won two gold medals in both individual and group competitions while riding her horse Toytown at the European Eventing Championship in Blenheim in 2005.

She also won individual gold and team silver medals at the World Equestrian Games in 2006 and a team silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics.

Kate also recalled the moment and said: “I can remember because you came back and said, 'I’ve never been so proud of anyone'”.

William also touched on the importance of sports and how he hopes his children will learn while playing sports.

Speaking about his children, Prince George, 10, Princess Charlotte, eight, and Prince Louis, five, William said it is also important to learn how to lose, as well as win, and understand what “you learn from that process”.

The Prince and Princess of Wales are in France this weekend to watch England and Wales in their first group-stage matches in the Rugby World Cup.

Kate, who is patron of the Rugby Football Union, will cheer on England v Argentina in Marseille on Saturday, while William, patron of the Welsh Rugby Union, will be there to see Wales compete against Fiji in Bordeaux on Sunday.

This follows after Kate paid a touching tribute to the Queen on Friday 8 September by wearing a pair of the late monarch ’s earrings on the first anniversary of her death.

Kate wore the jewellery along with a burgundy coat from London-based designer Eponine as she visited St Davids Cathedral in Pembrokeshire with Prince William for a memorial service commemorating the life of Queen Elizabeth II.
