Prince George and Prince William were spotted wearing matching suits at the soccer game on June 29 — and there was a reason the two looked nearly identical!
“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. 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."
The expert continued, “Kate and William are at pains to never expose the children unnecessarily to the cameras but he twisted their arm eventually. That’s why Kate came, so that when William had to meet all the dignitaries, George could stay with her."
Larcombe noted that George "idolizes" his father. "That’s why we saw him looking so smart in his suit — he really wanted to dress like William," he said. “He’s becoming a pretty big character and has both of his parents eating out of the palm of his hand.”
Of course, people loved the tot's stylish look. One person wrote, "Our #princegeorge is a lucky charm and all suit up. Born to be King. He’s such a great audience, a true football fan right there," while another said, "Awww we love you little man. You are such a boss little suit growing up to be just like your daddy. So proud of you Prince George. You look so handsome today. Does the little prince like his football?!!!! Good taste young man. Very good taste!"
A third user added, "Prince George looked so cute in his suit. I bet it was fun dressing up and watching the football with his dad. Great family. Great game."
George, 7, also plays tennis and frequently takes horseback riding lessons.
