Original story 8/7/21: Kate Middleton, Adele And Dua Lipa Lead Celebrity Reaction To England's Semi-Final Euros Win

The 2021 England football squad have made history, after reaching the final of the Euros and of a major international tournament for the first time since the World Cup victory of 1966.

England beat Denmark 2-1 in their semi-final match on Wednesday, with the winning goal resulting from a failed penalty saved by captain Harry Kane during extra time. The team will face Italy in the final, at Wembley, on Sunday July 11.

Though England emerged victorious, the game was not an easy win. It was tense, unpredictable and, for many England fans, torturous at times. But the final feeling was jubilation, relief and celebration, which has been shared by celebrities too.

From Prince William (who was watching the game at Wembley) and Kate Middleton to Adele, here are the best celebrity reactions to England reaching the finals of the Euros 2020 (postponed to 2021, due to the Coronavirus pandemic).

The couple took to their Twitter account to congratulate the team on their win, ensuring they included the hashtag #ItsComingHome:
