Prince William and his son, Prince George, had an exhilarating day out at the FA Cup final.


The match, which took place at Wembley Stadium in London on 25 May, saw Manchester United triumph over Manchester City with a score of 2-1.

The father-son duo, both avid football fans, were spotted enjoying every moment of the game, according to People.

William, 41, serves as the president of the Football Association, the governing body of football in England and Wales.

He had the honour of greeting the teams before the match.


The Prince of Wales shook hands with Manchester United’s attacking midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, and the team’s manager, Erik ten Hag.

He also greeted Manchester City’s midfielder, Phil Foden, according to Daily Mail.

Prince George, 10, looked equally excited.

Dressed in a dark suit and a blue and white striped tie, he sat next to his father, watching the action unfold with keen interest.


Prince William, donning a dark blue suit with a red, white, and blue striped tie, was seen explaining parts of the game to his son.

Their shared enthusiasm for football was evident as they cheered and discussed the game.

The royal outing came after a significant announcement from Buckingham Palace, according to The Independent.

On 21 May, following the surprise call for a general election by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, the royals decided to cancel several planned engagements.


A palace spokesperson stated, “Their Majesties send their sincere apologies to any of those who may be affected as a result.”

The aim was to avoid any appearance of distraction from the election campaign.

The royals traditionally maintain a non-political stance during such times.

Despite these cancellations, some events remain scheduled.

Commemorations for the 80th anniversary of the D-Day Landings, including King Charles’ first overseas trip since announcing his cancer diagnosis in February, are still on.


However, Buckingham Palace will assess other events, such as the state visit from the Emperor and Empress of Japan, on a case-by-case basis.

Prince William’s love for football is well-known. Recently, people have seen him at several Aston Villa matches, his favourite team.

Aston Villa’s successful season, culminating in their qualification for the UEFA Champions League has been a source of great joy for him.

“He has been hugely buoyed by the results of Aston Villa,” a close source revealed.

Football, it seems, provides a welcome respite amidst personal challenges.


Both his wife, Kate Middleton, and his father, King Charles, are undergoing cancer treatment.

On 11 April, people spotted Prince William and Prince George at an Aston Villa game.

As they left the stadium, a fan asked if George was now “part of the pride,” referring to the Villa supporters.

William confirmed, “Oh yes, he’s loving it,” as reported by sports journalist Neil Moxley.

Their presence at the FA Cup final further highlighted their shared passion.


Photos from the event captured touching moments between father and son, from intense game discussions to celebratory cheers.

The day wasn’t just about football; it was about creating lasting memories.

Prince William’s dedication as Football Association president and as a father was clear.

The day at Wembley perfectly blended royal duty and family bonding, showing the human side of the royals.

In football and beyond, Prince William and Prince George’s FA Cup final outing will be a memorable highlight.

Their shared love for the sport and the joy they derived from the match provided a heartwarming spectacle for all.
