Prince William sat down to watch a recording of England’s historic World Cup game with the Crown Prince of Jordan Al-Hussein bin Abdullad II, and the world has fallen in love with another prince.

The Duke of Cambridge touched down in Amman, Jordan, ahead of his five-day tour of the Middle East and was greeted by the Crown Prince on arrival.

The pair instantly hit it off, with Al-Hussein even driving the British prince around himself.

Before his arrival, soccer-mad William apparently warned everyone about revealing the score of the match between England and Panama.

“On pain of death, please don’t tell me the score,” he said according to the Mirror.

Luckily his new friend the crown prince was happy to record the match, and the pair were able to watch England’s 6-1 win in comfort.

“Prince William couldn’t watch the @England match live and avoided finding out the score all afternoon,” Kensington Palace said in a tweet.

The Palace shared photos of William sitting beside 23-year-old Crown Prince Al-Hussein in a huge room within the king’s palace, complete with giant flat screen TV and a baseball glove armchair.

They were both clearly enjoying themselves. But it was the crown prince that seems to have caught the public’s attention.

Twitter virtually exploded with people wanting to find out more about the crown prince.
