Terrace Chants Overpower Royal Fanfare as First Ever Buckingham Palace Football Match Kicks Off

By Gerald Lynch on at

Who ate all the pies? I'd pin it on the corgis, as Buckingham Palace plays host to its first ever football match today, with Civil Service FC and Polytechnic FC facing off today to mark the 150th anniversary of the Football Association's formation.

Wembley groundsman Tony Stones has been charged with the task of transforming the grounds into a pitch worthy of a kickabout, while Prince William has warned players to avoid smashing the palace windows unless they want their ball confiscated and their mothers sent the bill.

For the record, the Queen genuinely supports Arsenal football club, revealing the genetic lack of taste all members of the Royal family display, as it's a non-disputable fact that the only London club anyone should support is West Ham. [Metro]
