Work it, Prince William!

Earlier today, the Duke of Cambridge showed off his soccer skills while training with players on the grounds of Buckingham Palace to celebrate the Football Association's 150th anniversary.

Kate Middleton's other half was all smiles while kicking around soccer balls and running across the field. Prince George's papa sported some athletic gear consisting of sneakers and a navy blue soccer uniform. Fans and onlookers watched from the sidelines as Will and the soccer stars played in front of the Palace.

Before the match, Will joked to reporters, "I cannot tell you how excited I am that later today we will be playing football on my grandmother's lawn. One warning, though: if anyone breaks a window, you can answer to her."

"It is with the greatest pleasure that I welcome you all here today," Will also said in a speech. "This magnificent home, Buckingham Palace, is at the heart of the nation, and so there cannot be a more fitting setting to celebrate our national game, and to celebrate all of you."

As part of the festivities, Will, who's the current president of the Football Association, also hosted a soccer match between the Civil Service FC and Polytechnic FC teams. He'll also host a reception to celebrate The Football Association's 150 grassroots heroes.
