The royals have been enjoying their Easter break at Windsor

Prince George has everyone saying the same thing after surprise football trip with dad Prince William

Thursday night, Prince George and his father Prince William had a great time watching Aston Villa play Lille OSC hours from their Sandringham home. Royal fans had the same reaction to their unexpected outing.

The royal duo made their first public appearance since it was announced last month that their cherished mother and wife, the Princess of Wales, had cancer. William and George looked ecstatic as they watched their team win the UEFA Europa Conference League quarterfinal, despite the difficult circumstances.

A second bystander caught the father and son strolling together after the game on their way home. The 10-year-old prince’s height, which reaches his father’s shoulder, was clearly visible to the obliging royal observers. One fan wrote, “George is getting very tall,” in response to the picture that was posted on X.

The two looked adorable together, matching in their team color of navy blue and wearing identical jumpers. In addition, George was sporting his blue-and-claret Aston Villa scarf with pride.

George took a seat between his father and someone who looked to be a friend he had brought to the game during the match.

Being an avid football fan, Prince William once gave Gary Lineker an explanation for why he backs Aston Villa.

“A long time ago at school I got into football big time,” he said to the football pundit. I was searching the area for clubs. My schoolmates were all either Chelsea or Manchester United supporters, and I didn’t want to support the mediocre teams.

He explained why he chose the West Midlands team over one nearer to his home in Windsor or London, saying, “I wanted a team that was more mid-table that could give me more emotional rollercoaster moments.”

George is currently enjoying his Easter vacation with his siblings, Princess Charlotte, age eight, and Prince Louis, age five.

They have undoubtedly been spending time with their devoted grandmother Carole Middleton during their school break. It has been reported that Carole has been staying with them in Windsor over Easter while Catherine receives treatment.

She and William were reportedly spotted having fun on a weekend trip to the pub without the Princes of Wales, according to Richard Eden of MailOnline.

According to the columnist, Prince Harry and Meghan left Britain in 2020 “fearing for our lives,” but Prince William appears to be able to lead a fairly typical life.

“Indeed, I’m told he popped into a pub in North Norfolk at the weekend with his mother-in-law, who is said to have been staying with the Prince and Princess of Wales for Easter.”

He continued by saying that there was “no sign” of Catherine and that the outing to the pub was “low-key”.
