Perhaps the greatest of Royal traditions, the annual charity football match, took place on Christmas Eve, with Princes William and Harry on opposite sides at their Sandringham estate.
As per the Daily Mail, Prince William donned Aston Villa socks for the contest and at one point got properly stuck into to his younger brother.

Good on Prince Harry for having a game of football so soon after his Antarctica trip! William was playing too. pic.twitter.com/A8zbTXTY3k— Marcus Higgins (@MarcusAHiggins) December 26, 2013
In this pic, William appears to have the ball under control and be readying himself for a spectacular, Zlatan Ibrahimovic-esque overhead kick.
At the end of the match, which finished 2-2, the two brothers shared a hug.
