So it makes sense that George would follow in his footsteps and develop a love of the sport.

In 2019, it was reported by The Sun that George listens to the Three Lions anthem every morning when he wakes up.

Comedian Frank Skinner, who is behind the 1996 track, said William had told him all about it when they met at the Royal Variety Show.

The royal, who supports Aston Villa, apparently told Frank when they chatted: “I listen to your song every morning.

“Honestly, George plays it every morning ever since the World Cup (last year). I thought it would fade away but it hasn’t. He still plays it every day.”

Last year, George was spotted at Wembley watching England in the Euros final.
