The Reason Why William Had To Calm Down Son GeorgeOctober 8, 2019
On Saturday, the Cambridge family enjoyed a family day out at a football match, and royal fans couldn’t get over Prince George celebrating.
William and Kate took their six-year-old son and four-year-old daughter Princess Charlotte to watch Norwich City v Aston Villa.
George was sitting next to his dad and was spotted jumping up and down, punching the air, as midfielder Conor Hourihane scored Aston Villa’s fourth goal, in a match that ended in a 5-1 victory.
William as a football fan couldn’t hide his joy when in May the Villans were promoted to the premier league, he was a little more subdued at Saturday’s match. Fans on Twitter believe the Duke told his over-excited son to ‘calm down’ as Aston Villa netted their fourth goal. However, there’s a good reason for it.
Perhaps William wanted George to be mindful of that the Cambridges were sitting in the South Stand at Norwich’s Carrow Road football ground, among the losing home fans.
While his son George was still a baby, William opened up that he would “love” to attend football matches with his son in the near future, but he would have to “pass that by the missus”.
The Saturday’s match was the first football match for George and Charlotte’s and Aston Villa’s official Twitter account tweeted: “You know how to pick your #AVFC games, Your Royal Highness,” with a wink face emoji.

In 2015, William told Garry Lineker that the decision dates back to his childhood and has previously explained why he supports Aston Villa, despite not being from the Midlands. The Prince revealed: “A long time ago at school I got into football big time. 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.”
