Prince William had to tell son George to ‘calm down’ during his first Villa game

Prince William had to tell Prince George to calm down when he took the future king to his football game in 2019.

The Prince of Wales took Prince George and Princess Charlotte to Aston Villa's trip to Carrow Road in October 2019. However, Prince William had seemed subdued during the clash, despite his beloved Villa demolishing Norwich 5-1.

And a couple of months later, the Prince of Wales revealed why – and why he had to tell Prince George to calm down. "I wasn't celebrating, that was the problem, I was sitting with the home fans. George did my bit of celebrating for me," he later revealed.

The young Prince's celebrations had gone unnoticed either, and Gary Lineker tweeted: "Think Prince George has caught the football bug early."

Prince George looks to be following in his father's footsteps by supporting Villa. In 2015, Prince William told the BBC: "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."

Prince George was also seen widely celebrating England's opening goal in the Euro 2020 final when Luke Shaw found the net.

However, he had to be later comforted by the Prince of Wales after England lost on penalties to Italy.
