Prince George was at Wembley at the weekend to attend the Euro 2020 final.

The seven-year-old attended the England v Italy match alongside his parents, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

However, some people took issue with the fact he was wearing a suit and said he should have been allowed to wear a football shirt.

When asked whether William and Kate will keep George out of the limelight following the criticism, Mr Rae told Entertainment Daily!: “I think they will keep him out of the limelight while he is still young but I doubt very much it has anything to do with the unjustifiable criticism he received.

“I mean who in their right mind attacks a young lad who will be eight in a couple of days.”

He continued: “It is as despicable as those racists who attacked the black players. George had a great time at Wembley with his mum and dad.

“We could all see that.  But I am sure that his public appearances will be limited by William and Catherine in the same way they protect all their children.

“We shall see the odd picture or outing at birthdays and other special occasions.

“I doubt very much that the Cambridges pay much attention to the keyboard warriors, but like any parents in the public eye they will take even greater care.”

It comes after a royal expert said George wanted to wear a suit to be like dad William.

The little boy had previously worn a suit during England’s match against Germany in the quarter-final last month.

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe explained to OK! Magazine: “George idolises his dad.

“That’s why we saw him looking so smart in his suit – he really wanted to dress like William.”

Meanwhile, fans also loved seeing George dressed smartly.

One gushed on Twitter: “Prince George is such a handsome lad in his suit and tie.”
