The Duchess of Cambridge and her firstborn, Prince George, were recently spotted at England’s rugby match against Wales in the Six Nations on Saturday.
The match also gave an insight into the sweet bond royal mum and son have.
Ahead of kick-off, Kate and George along with dad, Prince William, met with representatives of the Rugby Football League’s (RFU) community and grassroots game.
After a little encouragement from mum, Prince George began to tell the group how he has started playing rugby at his school. “He has all the kit,” said the Duchess.
The young royal spoke about how he has just started learning the tackle and instantly turned to mum Kate: “But I haven’t tackled you yet!” Kate replied, laughing: “Yes, you have!”
The Duchess of Cambridge has recently become a patron of the RFU and the attendance at Twickenham Stadium was the first since assuming the role.
The Cambridges are known for their rivalry during sporting engagements, and considering Prince William has been patron of Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) since 2016, the couple sported their own team scarves for the game.
When asked which team he would be supporting, Prince George simply shrugged and smiled at Prince William, who said laughing: “It’s become quite the thing in the house,” gesturing to wife Kate, he added: “She is quite into it, I’m trying to stay out of it.”
Kate who has been a lifelong rugby fan from childhood attended her first engagement for the RFU earlier this month, showcased her rugby skills and spoke on her children’s enthusiasm for the sport: “They’re all enjoying it, Louis is kamikaze, we’re worrying about when he gets older, he’ll be in the middle of everything.”
