Prince William’s extraordinary decision to weigh into the debate on the Super League suggests he will be a more vocal monarch than his grandmother, according to Richard Eden. Appearing on Mail+’s Palace Confidential, Mr Eden said: “It has been very interesting to witness because we are not really used to royals intervening in this direct way.

“And he did so on Twitter and made a point that the tweet came from him with the W at the end.

“And he made clear he thought these plans were bad, he warned against them.

“And that chimed with a lot of people worried about them, and I think it does give us an inkling of what we could expect in the future from him as king.”

Mr Eden went on commenting on claims the Duke of Cambridge will be a ‘more political monarch’ than his grandmother.

He said: “And this seems to be an example of that, where he is really getting stuck in.”

The Queen, the Sunday Diary Editor at the Daily Mail added, has never been seen delving into a heated public conversation in such a direct way.

He said: “It’s unthinkable to imagine the Queen ever doing something like this.”

On April 19, in the wake of the bombshell announcement 15 leading European teams wanted to set up a new league comprising a total of 20 squads, Prince William took to Twitter to express his views.

The Duke of Cambridge is famously a fan of Aston Villa.

However, he didn’t just speak as an impassioned football fan but also as the president of the FA.

He wrote: “Now, more than ever, we must protect the entire football community – from the top level to the grassroots – and the values of competition and fairness at its core.

“I share the concerns of fans about the proposed Super League and the damage it risks causing to the game we love.”

As noted by Mr Eden, the tweet was signed off by the Duke with a ‘W’.

Two days later, Juventus chief and appointed Super League vice president Andrea Agnelli said the breakaway league could not go ahead in the wake of the decision of the six Premier League team to cancel their plans to join the new competition.

This announcement was hailed by the Duke of Cambridge.

On April 21, while the Royal Family was still observing a period of mourning in the wake of Prince Philip’s death, he wrote on Twitter: “I’m glad the united voice of football fans has been heard and listened to.

“It is now really important that we use this moment to secure the future health of the game at all levels.

“As President of the FA, I’m committed to playing my part in that work. W”

Speaking about Prince William’s influence, Mr Eden also believes the Duke will have an impact on his father’s reign.

Given his advanced age, it is unlikely Prince Charles will be the head of state of the UK and 15 other realms for several decades.

According to Mr Eden, this means he won’t make any major move without consulting his heir.

He said: “The strange thing for Charles will be that, when he does become king, already everyone will be looking for Prince William.

“And he won’t be making big decisions without consulting his son.”
