The Duke of Cambridge will attend Tuesday night's friendly between England and France at Wembley out of "solidarity to the people of France", a royal source has said.

Kensington Palace confirmed William, in his role as Football Association president, would be in attendance when France played their first game since the terrorist attacks in Paris on Friday, which included three suicide bombers detonating vests outside the Stade de France while Les Bleus were playing Germany.

The game will take place amid heightened security after the FA announced more security officers had been drafted in to create a stronger and more visible presence for the 70,000 spectators who are expected.
