What happened to Kate before the game?

The occasion – England’s first major final since 1966 – turned sour when groups of fans who did not have tickets stormed the barricades and forced themselves into the stadium.

This caused chaos and violent scenes as stewards tried to keep the unruly crowds at bay.

Showing she and her family walking down Wembley Way before the game, Kate revealed that they narrowly missed all the chaos and carnage.

“Although we had fun we narrowly missed 100s of people storming the gates and bashing down trying to get through the turnstiles, trampling people in their way,” she said.

“The same fans cheering everyone on are being racist the minute we lose.

“It’s just disgusting. Proud of the England team, but not proud to be English right now.”
