Prince William will not travel to Qatar to watch England play in the World Cup amid a growing row over the country’s human rights record, it was reported last night.
As FA President he had been expected to attend the games in November with England’s first match against Iran on the 21st.
But The Sun reported last night that the Prince is unlikely to attend – even if England make it to the final on December 18.
They said the Prince’s decision to stay away is due to a busy diary.
But Qatar has received heavy criticism for the conditions for stadium workers and the country’s criminalisation of same-s3x relationships.
Same-s3x relationships are illegal in Qatar due to its strict Islamic rulers.
It has also emerged that Amnesty International has urged Fifa to pay at least £350 million of compensation to Qatar stadium workers for the ‘human rights abuses’ they have been subjected to.
