Prince William and Kate Middleton kicked off their weekend with a family trip to cheer on his favorite soccer team, Aston Villa.

Accompanied by their eldest children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the royal family were photographed together enjoying the game, which Aston Villa went on to win 5-1.

Seemingly taking after his father, George, 6, was filled with enthusiasm during the match, and one adorable clip shared by the Kensington Royal Instagram account shows the young royal bouncing up and down in his seat while watching the action on the field.

Other photos show William, 37, leaning in and pointing towards the players as he appeared to explain what was happening to his son.

As her brother stood up to clap for the team, Charlotte, 4, could also be seen sharing a moment with her mother.

A cute photo from the royal family’s visit was shared by Aston Villa’s official Twitter account, which showed William clapping as the royal family took in the game together.

“You know how to pick your #AVFC games, Your Royal Highness,” they captioned the post.

Of course, this isn’t the first time George has shown he’s already growing into quite the soccer fan.

In two of his most recent birthday portraits, which were taken by his talented mom, George smiled and showed off his missing tooth while sporting an official England National Soccer Team jersey.

During a visit to a center that supports young first-time parents and children in London last month, the royal mom of three opened up about her own family.

“She said children grow up so quickly and she can’t believe that George is six already,” Chloe Koroma, 23, said after chatting with Kate.

“He’s a jolly little person and inquisitive,” a family friend previously told PEOPLE of the young royal.
