Kate Middleton joins Prince William to watch England’s Euro 2020 clash against Germany at Wembley

The Duchess of Cambridge looked effortlessly elegant today when attending the England vs Germany football match alongside Prince William and their eldest son Prince George.

Kate and the Duke of Cambridge, both 39, who are also parents to Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, arrived alongside their seven-year-old at Wembley to watch the Euro 2020 last-16 clash.

The mother-of-three showed her support in the colours of the England strip as she sported a vibrant red £59.99 Zara blazer for the occasion alongside a white top.

Looking equally smart, William and George donned matching navy suits, shirts and ties. The family were spotted chatting to former footballer David Beckham and his son Romeo Beckham while waiting for the action to start, and singing sensation Ed Sheeran was also pictured behind the royals.

For tonight’s game, Kate’s stylish ensemble consisted of a textured double-breasted blazer from one of the royal’s favourite High Street brands, Zara. The long sleeve jacket boasts a lapel collar, pronounced shoulders and front flap pockets, alongside glitzy golden buttons. 

She teamed the statement garment with a white top and black trousers, while sporting eye-catching pearl drop earrings for £225 from Simone Rocha. The mother-of-three finished her fashionable look with a smattering of glamorous makeup and kept her hair in bouncy curled locks.

George stood between his parents William and Kate as they sang the national anthem ahead of kick-off.  

Dressed in a smart suit and sporting a striped tie similar to his father’s, with his hair neatly parted at one side, it was a big moment for the young royal who only steps into the spotlight with his parents on select occasions. 

George, who is a football fan like his father, was the only one of the three Cambridge children to come to the game, with his sister Princess Charlotte, six, and brother Prince Louis, three, staying at home. 

The young prince amused fans when he mumbled shyly while the stadium joined together with the players to sing God Save the Queen, as some pointed out the song was about his great-grandmother.

George couldn’t hide his impatience for the game to start ahead of the Wembley clash, and didn’t seem too sure about the lyrics of the song celebrating the Queen.  

The Cambridges’ son looked away while his parents sang the national anthem, perhaps feeling a bit shy about singing with all eyes on him. 

Some royal fans dubbed his attitude ‘relatable,’ as the nation prepared to watch the Three Lions in action.  ‘Prince George is so relatable,’ one fan joked. ‘”Not that song about granny again!”,’ another said.  ‘Bless him,’ wrote one with a laughing emoji. 

George attended his first live game with his father to watch Aston Villa against Norwich City in October 2019.

Around 45,000 fans have been allowed into the stadium to watch Gareth Southgate’s squad battle the Germans for a place in the quarter-finals. Millions more are expected to head to their local – with some even hitting the boozers from as early as 7am this morning. 

England v Germany 2021: The latest clash in one of international football’s most intense rivalries 

The historic fixture, one of international football’s most intense rivalries, saw the sides meet in the 1996 World Cup final at Wembley.

In the 1970 World Cup, it was West Germany that put an end to England’s campaign in extra time. 

Germany knocked England out of the World Cup in 1990 and Euro 1996 on penalties in the semi final stages. 

In the Wembley clash 25 years ago, current manager Southgate missed a penalty that saw England crash out of the tournament they were hosting.

England crashed out of the World Cup 2010 to the Germans in a humiliating 4-1 defeat, the last time the sides met at a major tournament.

Today, both Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Sir Keir Starmer urged employers to authorise an early finish for workers ahead of the blockbuster and scores of people have taken to social media to express their joy at the swift getaway. 

One supporter tweeted: ‘Finished work early, straight home, shower, get me England shirt on, straight to the pub.’ Another added: ‘Work letting me finish early to watch England? Might get the cans out.’

Tonight’s match is one of the most anticipated in recent memory, with fan parks sold out and more than five million pints expected to be bought. 

The Three Lions have been uninspiring but effective en route to the last-16, claiming seven points from nine in Group D with two wins and a draw, which saw England net just twice, though conceding none. 

In Germany, they face their first major test of the tournament. Joachim Low’s side squeezed through Group F eventually finishing as runners-up behind France, who are now out after their defeat to Switzerland on Monday night

England and Germany are certainly no strangers in cup competition. The Three Lions claimed their one and only World Cup triumph with victory over tonight’s opponents in 1966, thanks to Geoff Hurst’s historic hat-trick. 

There was also the Frank Lampard goal that never was as Germany knocked England out of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. 

Southgate, in particular, will also remember missing the crucial penalty as Germany beat England in the Euro ’96 semi-final, before going on to win the tournament.

Earlier today, Prince William – known as the Earl of Strathearn when in Scotland- visited the BAE Systems yard in Govan, Glasgow, to meet the team building HMS Glasgow on the banks of the River Clyde.

He revealed his ‘delighted’ wife Kate has been appointed the sponsor of HMS Glasgow – after saying his late grandfather Prince Philip would have been ‘excited and fascinated’ by the skills on display at a shipyard.

The Duke of Cambridge, who joined his grandmother the Queen, 95, for part of Royal Week in Scotland, spoke movingly about the late Duke of Edinburgh after touring the warship under construction.

He also announced that the Duchess of Cambridge has become the sponsor of the Royal Navy frigate and will officially name her after the Queen approved her appointment to the role. 

The royal said: ‘Her Majesty the Queen has approved the appointment of my wife Catherine as sponsor of the superb ship we see taking shape outside – HMS Glasgow. I know that Catherine will be delighted to join you here in Glasgow for the naming ceremony in due course.’ 

He added: ‘My family’s affection for the Royal Navy is well known, and, as I saw the work taking place here today, I was thinking of my grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh. He would have been fascinated and excited to see such advances in skills and technology being put into practice.’

Philip served with the Royal Navy during the Second World War, had a long association with the service after leaving, and also had a passion for engineering.
