A Royal Tribute!

23 July 2013

Kingsley and Queensley's special gift...

From one Royals family to another, we would like to wish the new Prince of Cambridge and his family every health and happiness.

Reading Football Club’s mascots Kingsley and Queensley today marked the arrival of the new Prince. The club will be sending a brand new Royals kit to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and our mascots were on the Madejski Stadium pitch to share in the joy of this momentous occasion for the country. Some what appropriately - their gift to the Royal Baby was a home shirt, from the brand new Puma 'King' range!

Members of the Royal Family are of course well known to the Club and our Chairman Sir John Madejski, and he was a guest at the Duke and Duchess’ wedding at Westminster Abbey in 2011. The Duchess’ parents were guests of the Chairman at our play-off fixture with Cardiff just a few weeks after the wedding. His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales opened the John Madejski Fine Rooms at the Royal Academy of Arts, as well as the John Madejski Garden at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
