As heir to the British throne, Prince George can be protected from many things—but nothing could have protected the little prince from the crushing defeat of England's penalty loss to Italy in the Euro 2020 final. Prince George, who famously loves soccer, watched the game live at Wembley Stadium on Sunday evening with his parents and had to be comforted by his dad, Prince William, when England lost.

The oldest of Prince William and Kate Middleton's three children loves soccer so much, he reportedly begged his parents to bring him to the round of 16 game at Wembley Stadium last month. In 2019, Prince William revealed that his oldest son listens to the Three Lions football anthem constantly—"I thought it would fade away but it hasn't. He still plays it every day"—and at charity soccer games, Kate has joked about needing to take a leaf out of George's book.
