PRINCE George has been pictured celebrating Aston Villa’s 5-1 win with his father William, mother Kate, and sister Charlotte in adorable pictures showing the close-knit family’s fun day out.
A gap-toothed George, six, was seen grinning and laughing with the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William as the duke’s team beat Norwich City at their Carrow Road stadium today, amounting speculation the little boy is also a keen Villa fan. Although there was no sign of one-year-old Prince Louis, Princess Charlotte, four, looked on thoughtfully as fans cheered the team on toward a victory. George was sporting an Aston Villa t-shirt as he beamed when the team scored goal after goal.
One image shows the youngster punching the air as he celebrates with his mother.
The adorable display was seen by Gary Lineker.
The TV presenter tweeted: “Think Prince George has caught the football bug early.”
The official Aston Villa twitter account also sent George warm wishes, and tweeted: “You know how to pick your #AVFC games, Your Royal Highness.”

They added a winking emoji to the sweet message.
William sported a royal blue v-neck jumper and matching shirt while the Duchess of Cambridge wore a brown jacket with her long hair down.
The pictures come after William was spotted going wild in May when his club secured promotion to the Premier League through a Championship play-off final.

The second in line to the throne was sitting nearby Villa legend John Carew, who he embraced joyously after the final whistle.
Villa sealed their return to the Premier League after three years out with a 2-1 victory over Derby.
The Duke of Cambridge revealed his nerves ahead of the £170million match, telling BBC Sport: “I’m incredibly excited. It is going to be a bit of a nervy affair for me.”
It proved exactly that up until the final whistle, with William peeping through his hands as the clock ticked down in the final minute.

Prince William has supported Villa since his school days and revealed his strange geographical choice to Gary Lineker during a BBC interview at the 2015 FA Cup final.
He explained: “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. Aston Villa’s always had a great history.
“I have got friends of mine who support Aston Villa and one of the first FA Cup games I went to was Bolton v Aston Villa back in 2000.
“Sadly, Villa went on to lose to Chelsea. It was fantastic, I sat with all the fans with my red beanie on, and I was sat with all the Brummie fans and had a great time.
“It was the atmosphere, the camaraderie and I really felt that there was something I could connect with.”
