Arsenal winger Theo Walcott had a meeting with royalty, when he took part in an event alongside Prince William.

Walcott met the second-in-line for the throne as part of an FA project.

Working with the Football League, Premier League and British Council, young children from schools across the country had been asked to design plaques, to commemorate the football match played during World War I on Christmas Day.

Walcott was tasked with choosing the competition winner, and posted the following message on his Instagram page:

"So many incredible entries for the @BritishCouncil#FootballRemembers competition. HRH The Duke of Cambridge and I have chosen 10 year old Steven Turner as the winner, congratulations!"
