A message of congratulations from The Queen to the England Women's Football Team

Published 31 July 2022

You have all set an example that will be an inspiration for girls and women today, and for future generations.

Her Majesty The Queen

My warmest congratulations, and those of my family, go to you all on winning the European Women’s Football Championships. 

It is a significant achievement for the entire team, including your support staff. 

The Championships and your performance in them have rightly won praise.

However, your success goes far beyond the trophy you have so deservedly earned.  

You have all set an example that will be an inspiration for girls and women today, and for future generations.

It is my hope that you will be as proud of the impact you have had on your sport as you are of the result today.

ELIZABETH R
