The Prince(ss) and the (little) Pea: When Chicharito met William and Kate
It was a tale of the Prince and the (Little) Pea at the London Olympic Stadium this week as West Ham welcomed the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge into their home for a special visit.
William, Kate and Prince Harry were all in town to attend the Coach Core Graduation summit at the stadium, where they met with several members of the Hammers squad.
Javier Hernandez was among the players present, with the Mexico striker revealing that he received a personal royal welcome from the Duke himself.

Club captain Mark Noble also presented Prince William, an Aston Villa fan, with a miniature replica West Ham kit after it was announced earlier in the week that the couple are expecting their third child.
"Right colours, wrong team," came the polite but concise reply.
Doesn't sound like William is planning on switching his football allegiances any time soon.
