Prince William treated his oldest son Prince George to a special night out watching Aston Villa roar to victory in their Europa Conference League quarter-final – with the pair delighted by the win

Prince William gave a rare update on Prince George as the pair enjoyed a sweet father-son outing together.

Last night, the pair were spotted enjoying Aston Villa’s important victory against Lille in their Europa Conference League quarter-final at Villa Park. The heir to the throne is a huge fan of the club and was seen in the stands with his 10-year-old son clapping and cheering as Ollie Watkins opened the scoring in Villa’s 2-1 victory.

The night out marked the first time either William or George had been pictured in public since the Princess of Wales announced she had received a cancer diagnosis. In March, she revealed she is undergoing treatment for cancer in an emotional video message and since then, the Wales family have been spending private time together during the Easter holidays.

After the match, Neil Moxley, the chief sports writer of the Sunday People, the Mirror’s sister publication, managed to ask the Prince of Wales his thoughts about the game. In a post on X, formerly Twitter, he said he asked William: “Your Highness – after the Mostar game we saw you and you said 1-0 was a good result in Europe. How was this?” To which he says William replied: “Two-nil would have been better..”

Seeing that 10-year-old George had been pictured in the stands wearing a Villa scarf, Neil said he asked the prince: “Is George now part of the pride?” The pride is how fans of the West Midlands club refer to themselves. And William revealed his son’s affection for the club saying: “Oh yes, he’s loving it.”

The pair’s football outing comes just days after William interrupted his Easter break to send a personal message on social media marking his first public words since the Princess of Wales revealed her cancer diagnosis. William is not expected to return to royal duties until his three children go back to school after the holidays.

The prince took to social media to react to the news that England Lioness Rachel Daly, has decided to retire from international football. The 32-year-old Aston Villa striker won 84 caps for England and was part of the European Championship-winning side in 2022, where she started every game in the tournament.

Rachel revealed her news on social media and on X, formerly Twitter, she shared a series of photos representing her country with the caption: “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” And William, the president of the Football Association, shared the post, writing: “Thank you for so many unforgettable performances with @Lionesses, @RachelDaly3. Plenty more goals for Villa now!” The post ended with the letter W, denoting it was a personal tweet from the prince.

It is not known how long Kate will be receiving treatment but it is understood she may be keen to attend events as and when she feels able to, in line with medical advice, although this will not indicate a return to full-time duties.

In a message revealing her diagnosis, she said: “This of course came as a huge shock, and William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family. As you can imagine, this has taken time. It has taken me time to recover from major surgery in order to start my treatment. But, most importantly, it has taken us time to explain everything to George, Charlotte and Louis in a way that is appropriate for them, and to reassure them that I am going to be OK.”
