It came as it emerged Prince George begged his dad to attend the Germany game in matching suits.

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe told OK! a pal of William's let slip the truth about George's outfit.

He said: "Prince William is George's absolute hero. He thinks his dad's the most perfect person on the planet.

"William would never have normally taken him to the football because it was an official outing in his role as president of the FA, but George absolutely begged to be allowed to come along.

"George idolises his dad. That’s why we saw him looking so smart in his suit – he really wanted to dress like William.

“He’s becoming a pretty big character and has both of his parents eating out of the palm of his hand.”
