Prince George was a surprise guest at the England v Wales rugby match at Twickenham with his parents Prince William and Kate Middleton – and his appearance delighted royal fans
Royal fans were thrilled with a rare appearance by Prince George at the England v Wales rugby match.
The eight-year-old, who is third in line to the throne, was at Twickenham to watch the exciting Six Nations clash.
Of course, his dad Prince William was attending in his role as patron of the Welsh Rugby Union, while his mum Kate was there as patron of the Rugby Football Union.
Before kick-off, George accompanied his parents as they met representatives from the two rugby football unions and then joined them in stands for the big game.
And it seems the youngster delighted royal fans when he was caught on camera singing every single word of the national anthem God Save The Queen – alongside both William and Kate.
George could be seen looking up to both of his parents throughout the tune for reassurance as he sang the famous words.
And commenting on a video uploaded to YouTube of the moment, royal fans couldn’t hide their delight at him singing them anthem, which pays tribute to his great-grandmother the Queen, whom he used to call “Gan Gan” when he was younger .
