Prince William and Kate have brought their eldest son Prince George to cheer on England at Wembley tonight. The young Prince looked delighted to be joining his parents to watch the Three Lions face Italy in the nail-biting match.
Prince George was once again matching dad William wearing a similar suit.
The royal trio sang God Save the Queen before the start of the match. And two minutes later, William and Kate clapped after Luke Shaw scored for England while George beamed with delight after the goal.
Earlier today Marion Bartoli, Wimbledon star, revealed that Prince William and Kate were split on whether George should wear an England shirt, with William in favour but Kate against.
She told BBC Radio 5 Live: “Yesterday I had an afternoon tea with the duchess and it was very much a discussion whether George will be allowed to wear the jersey tonight at Wembley or not.
“William was for it, Kate not so keen, so we’ll see.”
Tonight marks his second outing at the tournament. Prince George previously watched the England vs Germany match. And after that, he was labelled England’s “lucky charm” after beating Germany 2-0.
Prince William has issued a video message to the England football team just hours before the match. He said: “I can’t really believe this is happening.”
The future king said: “Gareth, Harry, and to every member of the England team on and off the pitch, I just want to wish you the very best of luck for tonight.
“What a team performance it’s been. Every member of the squad has played their part, and all the backroom team as well have been truly essential.
“I can’t really believe this is happening. So exciting and I just wish you the very best of luck.

“You bring out the very best of England and we are all behind you.
“The whole country is behind you. So, bring it home.”
