Prince William take part in soccer training in gardens of Buckingham Palace.

 LONDON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (OCTOBER 7, 20113) (UK POOL) -  Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, took part in a soccer skills session in the garden of his grandmother's house on Monday (October 7).

The Duke, second in line to the British throne, is president of England's Football Association, his grandmother is Queen Elizabeth II and her home is Buckingham Palace in central London.

The Prince, wearing long tracksuit trousers rather than shorts, took part in various training exercises to improve his technique in passing and dribbling. He joined other players, both male and female, in the training, and former England, Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester United forward Michael Owen was there too to show how it should be done.

The training followed a match between two amateur teams on the same pitches.

The day of soccer at the Palace was organised to pay tribute to amateur soccer's 'grassroots heroes' and was organised by the Football Association as part of its 150th anniversary celebrations.
