Prince George made an adorable public appearance at Wembley this week as he joined his mum and dad to watch England beat Germany in the UEFA Euro 2020.
But the third in line to throne’s attire at the game has since sparked a heated discussion online.
The seven-year-old was dressed formally in a suit and tie, just like his dad, Prince William.
While there’s no doubt he looked rather smart, some fans have criticised Prince William and Kate Middleton for making George wear a suit to a football match.
Why on earth was Prince George wearing a suit and tie to the football? He’s a little boy. Someone give the poor lad an England shirt.

I know Prince George is 7 years old, but in those suit and tie he looks like he’s ready to sell off the NHS to a US company.

Prince George should have been wearing our football kit, not a suit. Who made that decision 🤦🏻♀️

Absolutely terrible PR from the palace to put Prince George in a suit instead of a tiny England strip with the tiny shoes and knee high socks and everything

prince george is lucky he goes to some posh ass school because if he went to any other school he’d be absolutely battered for wearing a suit to the euros 💀

On the flip side, others raved about Prince George’s outfit and felt it was appropriate given he could be king one day.
Pple are so weird. Whinging about Prince George wearing a suit. It was a dress code!. The same pple are the ones who will follow a dress code rule when their child is invited to a birthday theme party🙄 https://t.co/0BqXDixo5a

Everyone is moaning about Prince George wearing a suit at the England v Germany game but come on!!
Do we actually expect a future king to be wearing a replica England kit?? #getreal

I really don’t get why people are criticising the fact Prince George was in a cute little suit and tie!
For a start it’s quite normal in Britain for kids to wear a tie as part of school uniform!
Also most little boys of that age are delighted to dress “just like Daddy”! ♥️

Prince George in his suit with an England tie on is so cute even if he does look like he would rather be elsewhere 🤣

The royals joined David Beckham, Ed Sheeran and 22,500 other fans at the game between England and Germany, which England won 2-0.
England will play Ukraine in the UEFA Euro quarter-final on Sunday.
