Another added: “This family is everything”, while a third wrote: “Such lovely and sweet parents.”

Earlier in the game, George was seen celebrating with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as England scored their first goal in the opening minutes.

However, when Saka’s penalty miss broke English hearts, William could be seen clutching his son’s shoulder in comfort. 

Duncan Larcome, author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story, told Fabulous: “It wasn’t for the cameras, it wasn’t to prove some public point, it was an instinctive reaction from a father who loves his son.


“A father who is George’s hero from all accounts, and was desperate to see the Wembley games by his side.”

The young royal is said to have “twisted William and Kate’s arms” to get to be in the stands, and his choice of a suit was thanks to his dad as “George idolises him”.

Duncan told OK! magazine: “That’s why we saw him looking so smart in his suit—he really wanted to dress like William.”
