- Harry has on multiple occasions opened up about his trust and respect for Katie
Harry Kane‘s wife – who met the England captain when they were both in school – frequently shows her support for the Three Lions on social media but is unlikely to join the Golden Boot bearing striker in Qatar for the World Cup, instead sharing her support virtually.
However, Katie Goodland has for years stood by the football star, frequently and publicly showing her support for his team and talents.
The mother-of-three, 28, who has been with the Spurs star since they were teenagers, has in past been said to find his fame ‘a little crazy’ – but it’s clear the couple have a lot of pride in each other’s achievements.
Earlier this month, Katie took to Instagram to post an adorable snap of their children, sat wearing customised jerseys with the number nine – Harry’s own – with ‘Daddy’ written across the back.

‘The kids and I are so proud of you @harrykane,’ she penned. ‘We know you’ll make your country proud at the World Cup and we’ll be there with you every step of the way. Let’s go!’
Just days ago, she also made a post in support of her husband, after a moving visit to the Museum of London.
‘Had a really special time with friends and family recently seeing @harrykane achievements on display,’ she revealed. ‘Personally it was amazing to see everything that Harry has achieved in one room – but most importantly to us – we’ve helped create this free to enter exhibition to share Harry’s journey so far to help inspire the next generation.’
The sweet pair met while at school in Waltham Forest, East London and got engaged during July 2017. They then got married in 2019, and have three children – two daughters and a son.

Katie has more than 222,000 Instagram followers and regularly shows her support for England and his club Spurs.
And despite her shying away from the spotlight, the pair have been spotted together on some glam occasions.
Last year, the couple looked incredible as they attended the world premiere of No Time To Die at the Royal Albert Hall in London. The footballer dressed to impress in a 007 inspired black tuxedo, while his wife looked elegant in a black satin gown as they cosied up on the red carpet.
Harry first got down on one knee on the beach in Nassau, the Bahamas during a romantic holiday.
In 2019, the bride-to-be was spotted enjoying a fun-filled hen do, in a top emblazoned with her famous fiancé’s number nine, paying homage to his footwork skills.

The duo have enjoyed his rise together. Speaking in 2015, Harry revealed that they occasionally struggle to believe his rise to celebrity status.
He and Katie became friends while at Larkswood Primary in east London, before they moved on together to nearby Chingford Foundation School, where Beckham, who captained the England squad almost 60 times, had been a pupil.
They started dating in 2012 when they were aged 16 and attended the school prom together.
Harry told Esquire magazine in 2015: ‘We went to school together, so she’s seen my whole career.

‘Of course, she’s finding it a little crazy. I think she’s even been in the papers a couple of times taking the dogs out.’
The football star also revealed he trusts Katie, who has a degree in sports science, because he’s known her so long.
He previously told the Evening Standard: ‘If I was single now and meeting people, you’d never know if they were with you for the right reasons.
‘Is it the money? You’d never really know. So I’m lucky that I’ve got a childhood sweetheart.’
‘She always wanted to do her own thing,’ he added. ‘She went to university and worked hard.’
