Prince George looked just like his father in a rare public appearance.
On Tuesday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stood beside their 7-year-old son in Wembley Stadium for a UEFA Euro 2020 soccer match. England’s national team beat Germany 2-0 to reach the quarterfinals.
The couple’s eldest child and future king looked nearly identical to Prince William in a dark navy suit paired with a red-and-blue striped tie. George stood in between William and Kate Middleton, who donned a red blazer to the sporting event.
Videos of George flooded Twitter after he and his parents were spotted during the national anthem ahead of the game. Other well-known attendees included David Beckham and Ed Sheeran, who were photographed together at the game.
This isn’t the first time the Cambridges and their children have attended soccer games. George and 6-year-old Princess Charlotte sat by their parents during a 2019 Premier League match.
William, president of the Football Association, has been candid about his love of the game. He was featured in a BBC documentary, “Football, Prince William, and out Mental Health,” and even appeared with former England footballer Peter Crouch for a BBC podcast.
Last July, William joked that George would become the record goalscorer for his favorite team, Aston Villa, after being asked if his son liked soccer.
“I took George and Charlotte a while back, we went to the Norwich-Villa game. We tried to slip in there quietly but the [cameras] picked us up. George started getting really into it by the end,” William said. “I’m trying not to persuade [George] to be a Villa fan. I’m letting him choose his own way, having a variety of clubs of interest that I want him to go and experience. It’s about finding what fits for him.”
He added: “I reckon he could be their all-time goalscorer. I mean, I can see no reason why not. Brilliant.”
