Seeing worlds collide is always an interesting thing to watch as an outsider, and Prince William meeting with members of West Brom is just as bizarre as it sounds.

The Prince, the president of the FA and a notable Aston Villa fan, visited the West Brom training ground yesterday to discuss mental health amongst not only Albion players but with all players across the footballing pyramid in England as reported by BBC News.
Despite the seriousness and importance of the meeting, West Brom managed to end the day on a light note by handing Prince William a set of Baggies kits for the FA president’s children, a moment that many Albion supporters on social media loved given the Prince’s links to Aston Villa.
Here’s what West Brom fans had to say on Twitter about Prince William being gifted kits on Twitter…
Wills can you ask your nan to give our admin a knighthood, please?

“I’ll make sure Charlotte follows a decent side and not the Villa”.

West Brom will be hoping the royal visit will spur them on Monday night ahead of their massive fixture against Preston North End.
