Prince George Twins with Dad Prince William in Colorful Ties to Cheer on England's Soccer Team
A treat for Prince George — on a school night!
Prince George may have been the time's secret lucky charm. England defeated Germany 2-0, much to the little royal's excitement. The team will now move onto the quarterfinals.
The early evening kickoff of 5 p.m. London time made it a perfect after-school outing for Prince George. After the trio said hello to British soccer star David Beckham, who attended William and Kate's royal wedding in 2011 with wife Victoria, George was spotted singing the national anthem with his parents before the game started. Singer Ed Sheeran was also in attendance, sitting a few rows behind the royals.
Two years ago, George proudly wore his England soccer jersey in birthday portraits taken by mom Kate, 39.
But the little prince was in full formal attire for Tuesday's event, wearing a sharp blazer with a red and blue tie just like dad William, 39. Meanwhile, Kate represented her country's colors in a red blazer.
William is President of the Football Association, the governing body of the sport in England and regularly attends games. He recently made his allegiances clear via his social media tweets, wishing England well.
It's thought to be the first time George has watched the England national team live. However, he and younger sister Princess Charlotte, 6, were treated to a game in October 2019 when William's favorite club team, Aston Villa, played Norwich. The family (especially George!) was pictured cheering as Villa came out victorious.
