Prince George stole the limelight as he joined his parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to watch England play Germany in the European Football Championship tonight.

The young royal, seven, dressed in a smart suit and tie similar to his father’s, made a surprise appearance alongside Prince William and Kate Middleton, both 39, at Wembley Stadium this evening for the Euro 2020 last-16 clash.

It was a big moment for George, who only steps into the spotlight with his parents on select occasions, as he enjoyed his first England game, while his sister Princess Charlotte, six, and brother Prince Louis, three, most likely stayed at home.

The eldest Cambridge sibling, who shares the same name with the patron saint of England, watched as the Three Lions triumphed over Germany, winning 2–0 thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling.

After the triumphant game at Wembley Stadium, the Duke and Duchess took to their official Twitter account to praise the team’s ‘incredible performance’.

At the start of the night young George, who is an avid football enthusiast like his father, amused fans when he mumbled shyly while the stadium joined together with the players to sing God Save the Queen, as some pointed out the song was about his great-grandmother.

For the occasion, George, who was spotted talking to former footballer David Beckham during the evening, donned a smart suit just like his father Prince William, with a similar tie in pink and blue teamed with a light blue shirt underneath.

Meanwhile, the Duchess of Cambridge showed her support in the colours of the England strip as she sported a vibrant red £59.99 Zara blazer for the occasion alongside a white top.

At the start of the match, Prince George seemingly failed to hide his impatience while waiting for the game to begin — and also didn’t seem too sure about singing God Save The Queen with the rest of the crowd.

The Cambridges’ eldest son looked away while his parents sang the national anthem, perhaps feeling a bit shy about singing with all eyes on him. Read more: daily mail
