Prince George Was the Most Enthusiastic Royal Soccer Fan Over the Weekend


Prince George’s lively reactions during a soccer match are back. The young prince’s display at the Aston Villa soccer match he attended back in 2019 was like something out of a movie with his passion, enthusiasm, and excitement for each and every moment on the field being filmed and loved by royal fans.

When he watched England beat Germany back in June at the EURO 2020 final 16 fixture soccer match, it seemed his pure joy and excitement to watch his national team win was held a little at bay. But not today, folks.

Once again, the young prince joined Kate Middleton and Prince William for this year’s EURO soccer final between England and Italy, and very quickly, we saw George’s excitement over the team’s first goal. 

Within the first couple of minutes, England scored a goal against rival Italy. In response, George and William jumped up and down, punched the air, and yelled as loud as they could to celebrate. Kate also looked pleased as she pulled George in for a big celebratory hug.

Yes, George’s display mirrored that of his 2019 performance and we couldn’t be happier. Once again, the young royal wore a full suit to the match as per royal box protocol. His dad William also suited up for the occasion, wearing his official tie for the soccer association.

Kate looked stylish as always in a white blazer and bright red earrings. Sadly for young soccer fan George, his beloved team ended up losing to Italy in a nail-biting 11th-hour penalty shootout.

There’s no denying a royals love for soccer — any given one of them. Last week, Crown Princess Mary of Denmark travelled to England’s Wembley stadium to watch the semi-final between her home country Denmark and England unfold. She was flanked by her husband Prince Frederik and son Prince Christian. The excitement was clear from all of them.

Kate herself also showed her commitment to the sport — she attended the Wimbledon Championships men’s singles final on Sunday, just hours before making a quick outfit change for the soccer match that evening. 

Earlier in the day, Kate was seen cheering the players on from the queen’s Royal Box at the iconic London event. She was joined by her dad Michael Middleton. If the past couple of days are really something to go by, we can be certain of one thing: The royals really do love sports!
