The future king's message read: "Gareth, Harry, and to every member of the England team on and off the pitch, I just want to wish you the very best of luck for tonight.
"What a team performance it’s been. Every member of the squad has played their part, and all the back room team as well have been truly essential.
"I can’t really believe this is happening. So exciting and I just wish you the very best of luck.
"You bring out the very best of England and we are all behind you.
"The whole country is behind you. So, bring it home."
The Duke of Cambridge cheered the Three Lions on at the Wembley semi-final against Denmark.
He celebrated the 2-1 victory alongside Boris Johnson and wife Carrie.
Wills also watched the England-Germany clash, joined by wife Kate Middleton and son George in the stands.
The royal trio went wild after late goals from captain Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling saw the team score success.
The duke, an Aston Villa supporter who is president of the FA, will be at Wembley tonight to cheer England on.
He will join 65,000 other supporters who will roar on the Three Lions inside the stadium.
And with just hours to go until kick off, excitement is reaching fever pitch.
It comes as…
- Phil Foden looks set to miss England’s Euro 2020 final due to a foot injury
- Baddiel and Skinner are ‘banned by Uefa from singing Three Lions as it’d be unfair on Italy’
- Italy touch down in London but nearly left Gianluca Vialli at home
- A football-mad dad gets ‘England Euro 2020 winners’ tattooed on his leg BEFORE the final
- Ministers are told to stop saying ‘It’s Coming Home’ because it ‘doesn’t go down well overseas’
- England FA is hit with a £25,000 fine after a fan shone a laser pen at Schmeichel before Kane’s Euro 2020 semi-final penalty
Euros euphoria has well and truly swept the nation, with chants of "It's Coming Home" on repeat.
Although party poopers at Uefa have allegedly banned Baddiel & Skinner and the Lightning Seeds from singing the footie anthem at Wembley before the game as it will be "unfair" on Italy.
But the song could finally be coming true as the squad prepares to end a 55-year trophy drought.
William's message of support follows one by his grandmother in which she praised the Three Lions for their "spirit, commitment, and pride" ahead of the nail-biting final.
Writing the note on Windsor Castle-headed paper, the Queen evoked memories of 1966 when she famously presented the World Cup to England Captain Bobby Moore after the 4-2 win over Germany.
Addressing the letter to manager Gareth Southgate OBE, the monarch said: "55 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."
She signed the note “Elizabeth R”.
Other famous faces have also rallied around the team, with messages from Boris Johnson, Tom Cruise, Anthony Joshua and Harry Kane's wife Kate.
She posted her own emotional letter to her husband in which she revealed she used to laugh at Harry when they were kids and he told her that he would be England captain one day.
Kate told him: "Bring it home for the country, you deserve to lift that trophy with this incredible England team!"
She went on to praise the striker for always believing in his dream as he prepares for England's first major league final in 55 years.
World Heavyweight boxing champion Joshua said: "Boys, what can I say – it's been a Sterling effort so far.
"The nation believes you Kane go all the way and I'm sure you will leave everything on the pitch."
And Hollywood star Tom Cruise even made a good luck call to the boys.
In his message to the team, the PM praised England for lifting the spirits of the nation with their “energy and tenacity” throughout Euro 2020, and said: “Bring it home!”
