Yes, the photos were just as endearing as you’d imagine.
On Saturday, the royal family partook in a tried-and-true fall Saturday outing: watching a soccer match. But all eyes were squarely on Prince George who unequivocally won the sporting event thanks to his, shall we say, more than enthusiastic celebrations.
The 6-year-old was spotted in the stands clapping, waving and cheering on Aston Villa (who also happens to be his dad’s favorite team) as they took on Norwich City. While Princess Charlotte watched quietly while seated next to Kate Middleton (Prince Louis did not seem to be in attendance) George was enthralled with every moment, turning to Prince William to share in his excitement.
The future king of England quickly began trending on Twitter for his over-the-top expressions — it’s what the rest of us look like watching Bachelor in Paradise.
Here’s George strategizing the team’s next moves with his dad:
And waving to his adoring subjects:
Watching intently, as to not miss a goal:
And here he is appropriately applauding the players’ sportsmanship:
Even the Brits, notorious for their restraint, couldn’t get enough of George, tweeting all sorts of confusing British phrases about his antics. “Absolute limbs,” @HeartoftheHolte tweeted, which I learned on Urban Dictionary is when “football fans celebrate a goal wildly with arms flying everywhere.” Apt take.
Other accounts caught footage of the little royal’s unrivaled joy at Aston Villa player Conor Hourihane’s goal against Norwich. He was so excited that his dad even had to ask him to calm down.
The royal’s love of soccer has clearly been growing. For his sixth birthday Kensington Palace even shared pics taken by the Duchess of Cambridge of the George wearing his football kit (jersey).Most Popular
All hail the king of soccer fans.
