It was a night of right royal male-bonding with Prince William and his son Prince George hitting the UEFA Europa Conference League quarterfinals to support the Prince of Wales’ team, Aston Villa.

Wills made the most of young George’s holiday break to watch the Premier League team’s home ground clash with Lille OSC at Villa Park in Birmingham.

The father-son outing ended on a positive note with Villa’s 2-1 victory with both princes spotted cheering in the stands and even mingling with the home side’s star players, such as Tyrone MIngs.

William and George’s outing follows the Prince of Wales’ return to social media - in a post about the women’s club side - earlier this week, his first post since his wife, Kate Middleton, revealed her battle with cancer.

The duo’s attendance at the game also comes a year after they were both spotted cheering on the team, this time against Nottingham Forest.
