Prince George and Prince William headed for a football match

Prince George is just like Prince William during surprise outing

On Saturday, Prince George and his father, Prince William, went on a surprise outing to watch their favorite football team, Aston Villa, take on Nottingham Forest.

The young Prince resembled his father in every way, and the two wore a navy sweater and light-blue shirt combo to the football game. While they watched the first half of the game, George also mimicked his father’s mannerisms. When Villa scored in the second half, the young royal leaped for joy and gave other spectators high fives.

As they watched the game, the two sat with the club’s CEO, Christian Purslow. The men’s football team manager, Gareth Southgate, was seated just five rows in front of the royal spectators.

Since schools are currently closed for the Easter holiday, George will have enjoyed the game as an Easter treat.

The young Prince, who is known to be passionate about football, attended both of England’s victories over Germany and the team’s trips to the final of the 2021 Euros with the Prince and Princess of Wales, though they ultimately fell to Italy on penalties.

As soon as the nine-year-role old’s in his grandfather, King Charles’, coronation was confirmed, George and William went on a surprise outing. George will serve as a page of honor.

The procession through the nave of Westminster Abbey will include the pages carrying the lengthy trains of the ceremonial robes worn by the King and Queen Consort.

They typically dress in a scarlet frock coat with gold trimmings, a white satin waistcoat, breeches and hose, white gloves, black buckled shoes, a lace cravat and ruffles, and other traditional attire.

Additionally, Pages of Honor participate in other royal occasions like the Order of the Garter Ceremony and the State Opening of Parliament.

Pages of Honor for these occasions have historically been nobility’s offspring rather than actual members of the royal family.

In the lead-up to the ceremony, comments on a new photo of the King and Queen Consort showed that royal fans were not bothered by the break from tradition and many of them backed George’s performance.

“Love this new image and how Prince George will play a significant part on this momentous occasion! I am so excited, “One Instagram user commented.

Another person added, “It’s wonderful that George gets to participate in the procession. “Such a beautiful portrait, and wonderful news about the Pages of Honour,” a third person remarked.
