British Princes William and Harry may visit Japan to watch the World Cup soccer finals, the British paper Sunday Express reported Sunday.

The two princes have already obtained permission from their father, Prince Charles, the report said.

Four years ago, the three attended World Cup matches in France, but only the two brothers are expected to come to Japan.

The England team will play its first-round matches in Saitama, Sapporo and Osaka.

The princes will likely attend the June 2 match in Saitama, where England will face Sweden. Buckingham Palace is consulting with the British Embassy in Tokyo about security, the paper said.

The tournament, cohosted by Japan and South Korea, takes place between May 31 and June 30.
