Prince William laughs at Alex McLeish’s appointment as Aston Villa manager
A few months late, this video has risen to prominence after being spotted by the Birmingham Mail.
It shows Aston Villa fan Prince William appearing to let out a hysterical laugh when asked about Alex McLeish on the day the former Birmingham boss took charge at Villa Park last August.
The Duke of Cambridge was in Birmingham on a visit following rioting in the City when one onlooker decided to make enquiries about whether the new management had Royal-approval.
With the Villa faithful not exactly having warmed to McLeish, it’s safe to say the appointment is still considered laughable in some quarters.
