PRINCE GEORGE regularly melts hearts during royal outings – none more so than the time he accompanied dad Prince William to an Aston Villa game last September.
Aston Villa and Liverpool go head to head later today in the Premier League. Two weeks ago, Liverpool won English football’s top tier after a 30-year wait. It means the run-away champions have little to play for.
Meanwhile, Aston Villa have everything to play for.
The Claret and Blue side currently sit just six points clear of the bottom of the table.
Norwich City and Bournemouth are the only sides below them.
There are a handful of games still to be played, with Aston Villa hopeful they can clinch enough points to stay in the Premier League.

A loyal fan, Prince William has followed Aston Villa since he was a child.
The Prince previously told the BBC he decided to support the team because he wanted to be different to his friends who followed the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea.
He instead opted for a “middle of the table” side that would give him “emotional rollercoaster moments” and a team he could connect with.
He has at times admitted that he should have perhaps made an alternative choice to give himself an easier ride.

On many a match day has Prince William been spotted in the stands.
Last September, William took his children Prince George and Princess Charlotte to a fixture against Norwich.
The day proved lucrative – with Villa coming away with a resounding 5-1 win.

Each time Villa scored, young George could be seen jumping for joy and cheering loudly.
William and Kate were beside themselves with laughter as they tried to calm him down.
Kate leant over little George to share in his excitement, while William put his hand gently on his shoulder to stop him from jumping out of his seat.
The scenes were captured on camera and posted to the TeaTimewiththeCambridges Instagram page, causing a social media storm.

Following the trend of excitement over his reaction, another said: “Awww that is so cute I’m a little bit in love, just a kid enjoying his team winning.”
An Instagram user wrote: “Prince George is just so cute. Good to see the family having a day out and having fun, just like a normal family.”
