LA Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford has shared details of Prince Harry’s visit to the locker room after the team’s Super Bowl victory on February 13. The Rams official social media channels shared pictures of Harry after the game holding the trophy with NFL officials joining him alongside players.
“Feelin’ like royalty. #SBLVI,” they captioned the post.
Harry was accompanied by his royal cousin Princess Eugenie – with whom he has a close relationship – for the day out on Sunday.
The pair sat next to each other at Los Angeles’ So-Fi Stadium, choosing to watch the game inside a private box.
They wore black masks, in accordance with Los Angeles County rules ordering KN95 or N95-grade masks for outdoor events attended by large audiences.
Their presence went unnoticed by photographers, but the NFL UK Twitter account shared a picture of the pair and wrote: “Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie in the house at #SBLVI.”
Speaking on his wife Kelly’s podcast The Morning After, Mathew shared that he thought Harry and his teammate Cooper Kupp were “lookalikes”.
He said: “Speaking of lookalikes, Prince Harry, I met him yesterday – he is Coop’s lookalike, [with the] red beard.”
Elaborating the incident, Mathew said: “Prince Harry and Coop yapped it up” in the locker room when Harry visited them following their win.
