Fans convinced Queen put ‘hidden message’ in letter to England for final

Fans are said to be convinced that the Queen has put a ‘hidden message’ in a letter to England team for the Euro 2020 final.

Excitement is reaching it’s peak and nerves are setting in ahead of the historic game, and Twitter users reckon Her Majesty has also been caught up in the buzz.

On Thursday night, the monarch praised the Three Lions for their “spirit, commitment, and pride” ahead of the nail-biting fixture against Italy.

And she spoke on the memories of 1966 when she famously presented the World Cup to England captain Bobby Moore after the 4-2 win over Germany.

But on closer inspection, some think she wanted to deliver an extra-special message to Gareth Southgate and his squad.

One Twitter user managed to find the footie anthem “It’s Coming Home” within her letter, written on Windsor Castle-headed paper.

Not long after the message was published, he shared a picture of it with the relevant letters of the alphabet circled in red – spelling out the song.

He captioned it: “Hidden message within the Queen’s message…”

And his tweet of the 95 year old’s letter has gone on to get over 12,300 likes within 13 hours.


She wrote: “Fifty-five years ago I was fortunate to present the World Cup to Bobby Moore and saw what it meant to the players, management and support staff to reach and win the final of a major international football tournament.

“I want to send my congratulations and that of my family to you all on reaching the final of the European Championships, and send my good wishes for tomorrow with the hope that history will record not only your success but also the spirit, commitment and pride with which you have conducted yourselves.”

Gareth Southgate says England “want to go and bring the trophy home” ahead of facing the Italians in the Euro 2020 final – the team’s first appearance in a men’s major tournament showpiece in 55 years.

Speaking on the eve of Sunday’s historic match at Wembley – the scene of their 1966 World Cup triumph – Southgate insists the side are “ready” amid nationwide anticipation.

“We’re in a final and we are here to win,” Southgate said.

Southgate described letters received from the Queen and Prime Minister Boris Johnson praising the squad’s spirit and commitment as “fantastic”.

“Everything is important, how we’ve represented people and we’re pleased that legacy has been there but now we want to go and bring the trophy home for everybody,” he added.

Captain Harry Kane, who was alongside Southgate at the pre-match news conference, said the squad are determined to fulfill the goal they set themselves at the outset of the tournament and win the Euros for the first time.

“We have been knocking down barriers on the way but we have to go out there and win it,” said the striker.

“We started this tournament with an aim to win it and we have that opportunity tomorrow night.

“To see the fans on the street and see the reception we have had, it has just shown us how big of an occasion it is.

“We know how much it means to the English fans so we are proud to be representing them and hopefully we can do them proud tomorrow night.”

Southgate also urged the England home supporters at Wembley, which will host at least 60,000 fans, not to disrespect the Italian national anthem.

“It’s important our fans always respect the opposition,” he said.

“We know that when we play abroad and fans boo our anthem it inspires them more. I don’t think it will help the team.

“We can intimidate the team booing during the game, but it is different for the anthem.”

Kane has received praise from Giorgio Chiellini in the lead-up to the final and last season’s Premier League top goalscorer is relishing the challenge of facing the Azurri skipper along with his centre-back partner Leonardo Bonucci.

“They are two amazing defenders. They have had great experience in big matches over their careers. I want to play against the best centre-backs in the world and those two are definitely up there,” Kane said.

“But it’s not about me. The game is about England v Italy and we have a great belief in the team.

“We have great strength in the squad and a lot can happen in a final and we need to make sure we’re on the right side of it.”

As some fans were convinced the Queen put a ‘hidden message’ in the letter to England for Sunday’s Euro final (jokes of course), the reaction poured in as the tweet went viral…

@Horty86: Lizzy bloody knows. #ItsComingHome

@martinvanneck: How come no one sees the real message? 🤔 “55”. It’s so clear! She orders Gareth Southgate to play a 5-5 system. Not 4-3-3 or 4-4-2, not 3-5-2 or 4-2-2-2 but just simply 5-5. At Her Majesty’s Pleasure.
