Prince William should not go to Qatar for the World Cup. The chairman of the English Football Federation”has no plans to surrender“for the major sporting event, a source close to the prince told AFP, referring to an already busy schedule, confirming information reported by the local media. As the competition which begins on November 20 approaches, Doha is the subject of strong criticism because of its multiple human rights violations, in particular concerning women, LGBT people or migrants working on the construction of stadiums.
The English press first reported that Prince William was to travel to Qatar to watch Three Lions matches. But according to friends of the prince quoted by the tabloid The Suneven a trip if the England team reaches the finals is unlikely and would be – if it takes place – within the framework of a simple government delegation.
