Though Prince George clearly enjoyed his time at the recent Euro Cup matches, royal expert Robert Jobson believes Prince William and Kate Middleton will have the 7-year-old take a break from public appearances.
"With George, he got quite a lot of social media attention," the expert noted while on an Australian talk show. "Some were critical about him wearing a shirt and tie like his dad, which I thought was very harsh."
"He has been very popular, but I think they are going to try and keep him out of the limelight a little bit," he continued. "They are very conscious of that. The pictures were great with his dad when he was celebrating for that all too brief moment."
George enthusiastically cheered on England's soccer team at the June 24 and July 11 games while wearing a suit and tie — an outfit choice he made to match his dad.
"Prince William is George’s absolute hero," expert Duncan Larcombe told OK! magazine. "He thinks his dad’s the most perfect person on the planet. That’s why we saw him looking so smart in his suit — he really wanted to dress like William."
While many thought the matching outfits were cute, others poked fun at George's dressy look. Some social media users also said that he was "spoiled" for attending such a big event.
However, Larcombe claimed that the parents-of-three didn't intend to bring along their eldest child, but eventually, he persuaded them.
"William would never have normally taken him to the football because it was an official outing in his role as president of the FA, but George absolutely begged to be allowed to come along," he explained.
"Kate and William are at pains to never expose the children unnecessarily to the cameras but he twisted their arm eventually," he said. "That’s why Kate came, so that when William had to meet all the dignitaries, George could stay with her. He’s becoming a pretty big character and has both of his parents eating out of the palm of his hand."
