Prince William has stepped into the row over racism in football, saying there is "sadly more work to do" to eradicate it from the game.
The Duke of Cambridge has vowed to take Prince George to watch his beloved football team, Aston Villa, at Villa Park in the future.
Prince Charles has revealed William and Harry inherited an essential quality from him - his prowess on the dance floor.
Prince William's ambition to persuade his son George to follow Aston Villa could see the future King join a powerful set of supporters of the Midlands team.
Today marks 150 years since the Founding Fathers of football met to form the Football Association (FA) and create the laws of football.
The FA will host a gala dinner in London this evening to celebrate and will be joined by the Duke of Cambridge and footballing legends from around the world.
In the video address, Prince William, who is President of the FA, added that he is looking forward to watching the team he supports, Aston Villa, with his son George in the future.
Prince George will be christened during a ceremony that will be both a private family occasion and a historic event.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's baby will be welcomed into the Christian faith surrounded by his immediate family and the close friends of his parents.
But as a future King, his baptism in the little known Chapel Royal at St James's Palace on Wednesday afternoon will be performed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby.
The guest list has not been released but Kensington Palace has said that "close members of both families" will attend including the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, along with the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry.
Two guard dogs used to protect the Duke of Cambridge have been put down within days of him leaving his military base.
Bruce, a Belgian Shepherd, and Blade, a German Shepherd, were euthanised after the prince completed his final shift as a search and rescue pilot at RAF Valley on Anglesey, The Sun reported.
The Ministry of Defence confirmed the dogs had been put down, but described the timing as "a coincidence".
A spokesman said: "It is true two dogs have been put down, a couple of days after (Prince William left RAF Valley earlier this month)."
Bruce, who was aged nine, had "come to the end of his working life", while Blade "had a record of veterinary and behavioural issues" which meant the dog could not be reassigned to other duties, the spokesman said.
The Duke of Cambridge attended the wedding of his close friend James Meade to Lady Laura Marsham without his wife or son today.
However, Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton were among the guests at the wedding in Gayton, Norfolk.
They were taken by tractor trailer to the church ahead of the bride, who walked from the neighbouring country home of her father, Julian Marsham, the 8th Earl of Romney, who was at her side.
