The Royal Family

Prince William Spotted With Prince George At Aston Villa Match

Members of the royal family took in Aston Villa’s Premier League clash with Nottingham Forest at Villa Park on Saturday afternoon.

Unai Emery’s side are in fine form having now won five of their last six matches. The Villans are also unbeaten in their last six matches since losing to Arsenal in February.

Villa’s form has them dreaming of Europe as they currently sit seventh in the Premier League table. They are facing a Forest team who are struggling, particularly away from home with the Reds winning just once on the road in the league this season.

And a couple of special guests made an appearance for Villa’s clash with the Reds. Villa fan Prince William attended the match alongside his son, Prince George.

The royal visitor was spotted in the stands sitting next to Villa club chairman, Nassef Sawiris and chief executive Christian Purslow. England manager Gareth Southgate was also spotted at Villa Park.

Speaking ahead of their FA Cup defeat to Arsenal in May 2015 under Tim Sherwood, Prince William spoke to BBC presenter Gary Lineker about his Villa allegiance.

He said: “A long time ago at school I got into football big time. I was looking around for clubs. All my friends at school were either Man United fans or Chelsea fans and I didn’t want to follow the run of the mill teams.

“I wanted to have a team that was more mid-table that could give me more emotional rollercoaster moments.

“Aston Villa’s always had a great history. I have got friends of mine who support Aston Villa and one of the first FA Cup games I went to was Bolton v Aston Villa back in 2000. Sadly, Villa went on to lose to Chelsea.

“It was fantastic, I sat with all the fans with my red beanie on, and I was sat with all the Brummie fans and had a great time. It was the atmosphere, the camaraderie and I really felt that there was something I could connect with.”
