• Prince George, the eldest son of Prince William and Kate Middleton, joined his father on a trip to France to watch a rugby match between Wales and Argentina.
• Prince George and Prince William were seen wearing matching navy suits and red ties at the match.
• During their visit, Prince William and Prince George also met with the president of the Welsh Rugby Union and the mayor of Marseille.
Here is what happened:
Prince George celebrated his 10th birthday with a special trip to France alongside his father, Prince William. The duo traveled to Marseille to support the Wales national rugby union team in the quarterfinals of the 2023 Rugby World Cup against Argentina. Dressed in matching navy suits and red ties, George and his dad watched the thrilling match, which unfortunately ended with a 29-17 victory for Argentina. During their visit, Prince William, who is the Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU), and George met with Gerald Davies, the president of the WRU, as well as the mayor of Marseille, Benoît Payan.
It was a rare overseas trip for Prince George, as he had previously only attended sporting events in the United Kingdom with his parents. This marked the first time any of the three royal siblings had traveled abroad to watch a match. However, back in 2016, William and Kate took George and his sister, Princess Charlotte, on a family ski vacation to the French Alps. The young prince seemed to be following in his father’s footsteps as they both sported smart navy suits and red ties at the Rugby World Cup.
The pictures from the event showcased the excitement and joy shared between George, William, and the other attendees. It was evident that George thoroughly enjoyed the experience, even though Wales didn’t come out on top. The trip not only allowed the father-son duo to bond but also provided an opportunity for George to witness the passion of rugby fans from different countries. With such a memorable celebration of his 10th birthday, Prince George will surely have fond memories of his time in France, supporting his favorite rugby team alongside his beloved father.
