Prince George proves to be England’s lucky mascot at Wembley

Prince George proved to be England’s lucky mascot this evening after Gareth Southgate’s squad beat Germany under his watchful gaze.

The seven-year-old was in the royal box at Wembley stadium to watch the national team for the first time.

And the after-school treat must have exceeded his wildest expectations as the team won 2-1, propelling them into the Euro 2021 quarter finals.

Dressed smartly in a suit and tie, Prince George stood solemnly between his parents as the crowd sang the national anthem ahead of the match.

It was also the first time the Duchess, wearing a red Zara blazer, has joined her husband to watch the national side.

The Duke, President of the FA, watched the Three Lions’ final group game as they defeated Czech Republic 1-0.

Prince George appeared slightly overwhelmed as he watched the match but was pictured beaming from ear to ear when Raheem Sterling scored England’s first goal.

All three royals jumped to their feet cheering, as the Duke waved his fists in the air shouting "Yes."

A huge football fan, Prince George attended his first match with his sister, Princess Charlotte in October 2019, when they watched Norwich City vs Aston Villa at Carrow Road Stadium.

Alongside the Cambridges in the royal box were David Beckham and his son, Romeo, Ellie Goulding, David Seaman and Ed Sheeran.

Meanwhile Boris Johnson watched the game alongside his wife Carrie at Downing Street, tweeting "Come on England!" to his 3.5m followers.
