Sorry if this has been said on a different thread but I have to say it .
I am Welsh and a Royalist .
Would have liked Wales to have won Euros but still supported England .
I was delighted to see Prince George there with his lovely parents . What a credit to the royal family .

Yes he is a sweetie. smile

He did seem very excited and was obviously enjoying himself.

It’s probably a treat to be out with his Mum and Dad and no pesky siblings wanting their attention.

It’s just sad that he looked like he was dressed for a funeral. It would have been nice to see him in an England football shirt as any other 8 year old.

I liked their freedom element. Quite lovely. No pomp or ceremony or having to behave 'as expected'

Fleur20 Tue 13-Jul-21 08:07:00

Apparently he wanted to wear a suit the same as his Dad!!

Apparently formal attire is required in the royal box.

This was discussed elsewhere, as is said above a couple of reasons have been put forward.
He seems to wear casual clothes at other times, so my guess is he liked it!

He looked to me as if he was dressed for a very special occasion, which it obviously was to him.

If he had been dressed casually no doubt he would be said to be disrespecting football and no doubt, England.

He was dressed appropriately for where he was sitting, I doubt
he would wear casual wear instead of school uniform.

He is adorable,and clearly a happy little chap,then again,he has lovely parents.

Sometimes we cant do right for doing wrong.

I find with discussions on the RF lack of knowledge or understanding of protocol leads to a lot of unnecessary criticism.

The flag business at Diana's death is an example that springs to mind.

Sorry back to George, I enjoy seeing him and siblings out and about.

Somtimes they cant do ...

I thought he looked lovely.
So did David Beckham and Kate Moss - just saying. smile

Callistemon Tue 13-Jul-21 15:48:16

I didn't notice Kate Moss!
Is she an avid football fan?

Probably not. Just a freebie. wink

At least Prince Goerge didn't have to go into school the next day. He had already broken up for the summer. Good timing, or he might have had to stay at home.

Anyone see David Beckam with Tom Cruise?

Janetashbolt Wed 14-Jul-21 11:40:57

My 8 year old grandson loves to wear suit, with waistcoat and tie for occasions, likes to dress like dad

Crazygran Wed 14-Jul-21 11:45:51

I really wish that more people dressed up for an occasion. Sadly a thing of the past 😩

JaneJudge Wed 14-Jul-21 11:51:53

I think the Daily Mail were insinuating Kate Moss went with David Beckham to the match doesn't Cruz look like his MOther! smile

kwest Wed 14-Jul-21 12:02:22

I think he is delightful.

Many years ago my youngest son was very miffed to be dressed in new trousers, shirt and tie for his 1st Holy Communion. He asked me why I was dressing him like John Major who was PM at the time. Hope he doesn't follow Major's liking for curries. wink

BRAVEBETH Wed 14-Jul-21 12:39:00

I thought it was lovely he wanted to look like his dad. We should respect George' wishes.

Sheilasue Wed 14-Jul-21 13:04:24

Pity William and George didn’t have the England T shirt on.
