Buckingham Palace soccer: 'Don't break a window'

AP - Sports

LONDON (AP) -- It's all well and good to play soccer on the beautiful lawns at Buckingham Palace, but don't break a window.

That was Prince William's message Monday in advance of the first ever competitive match held on the extensive palace grounds.

''I cannot tell you how excited I am that later today we will be playing football (soccer) on my grandmother's lawn,'' he said before the game. ''One warning, though: if anyone breaks a window, you can answer to her.''

The game features two amateur teams, Civil Service FC and Polytechnic FC, playing in a Southern Amateur League match.

The soccer pitch was easily accommodated in the 39 acres of gardens, amid lakes and flowerbeds.

William gave medals to 150 soccer volunteers before the game.
