Prince George shows signs he ‘idolises’ William in Euro 2020 appearance


The young royal joined the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge throughout the Euro 2020 as they supported England from the stands. Royal observers explained how Prince George’s behaviour showed his admiration for his dad.

Body language expert Judi James pointed out that George would mirror William’s gestures.

She told the Sun: “His first glance is at William and as he sees his dad celebrate by roaring and air-punching we can see George use postural mimicry and mirroring to respond in almost exactly the same way.

“After hugging his dad to share the moment of intense celebration, George sets about producing his own personal ritual of joy and the way he throws both arms up and out shows who he has learnt them from.

“He even rubs his nose in a trait that we often see in William and both father and son pull at their trouser belts in matching body language routines.”

 Prince George and Prince WilliamRoyal author Duncan Larcombe told the news outlet the Duke had a natural reaction to comfort his son when England lost the final to Italy.

In photographs obtained during Sunday’s event, the Duke can be been gripping his son’s shoulder in an attempt to comfort him.

Mr Larcombe said: “It wasn’t for the cameras, it wasn’t to prove some public point, it was an instinctive reaction from a father who loves his son. A father who is George’s hero from all accounts, and was desperate to see the Wembley games by his side.”

Ms James explained that the two royals’ close bond can be appreciated in the way the Duke bends so that his son is able to see his face when they talk.

She said: “This is bonding by changing his state, ie getting down to his son’s level, which was often rare in previous generations of royals.

“Royal children were often expected to act like small adults when they were out in public and the adult royals used to treat them the same, rarely if ever bending to create a more direct form of communication.”

She added that the Duke’s actions toward George mark a difference from traditional royal mannerisms.

Ms James said: “This meant the small royals often grew up surrounded by a sea of legs rather than the powerful facial expressions and subtle fluctuations in vocal tone that George will be getting from his dad.

“The bending to speak and the touch ritual create a closeness and helps them tune into one another in a way that previous royals rarely could.”
