The sudden passing of Leicester City owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha was felt by lovers of the beautiful game not only across the world, but especially in England.

From the British Royal Family, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Catherine Middleton, visited the tribute sight outside Leicester City’s ground, the King Power Stadium, to pay their respects. After visiting the stadium, the Duke and Duchess traveled to the University of Leicester, to learn more about educational programs funded and supported by the late Srivaddhanaprabha and Leicester City.

“He of course was a man of wealth, but that wealth did not leave him disconnected from those around him. He believed in giving back,” Prince William said of Srivaddhanaprabha.
