Watch: 'It’s coming home': Prince William and Duchess Catherine celebrate England's 'huge team effort' after Denmark win

Prince George is probably celebrating England's win with his classmates after Gareth Southgate's squad made it to their first final in more than 50 years.

But after he was allowed to watch the side in action in the Euros 2020 round of 16 match against Germany, royal fans might be wondering if they will get to see the little prince in the stands again on Sunday evening.

According to former royal editor of The Sun and author Duncan Larcombe, the prince had to persuade his parents to let him go to Wembley with them.

Larcombe told OK: "Prince William is George’s absolute hero. He thinks his dad’s the most perfect person on the planet.

"William would never have normally taken him to the football because it was an official outing in his role as president of the FA, but George absolutely begged to be allowed to come along."

He added: "Kate came, so that when William had to meet all the dignitaries, George could stay with her.

"George idolises his dad. That’s why we saw him looking so smart in his suit - he really wanted to dress like William."

But George was not with William on Wednesday night as his dad travelled to Wembley to watch the squad take on Denmark - as did Danish Royals Crown Prince Frederik, Crown Princess Mary and Prince Christian.

After the match, William and Kate's official twitter account shared: "What a game, what a result! A huge team effort @England.  

"The whole country will be behind you on Sunday #ItsComingHome."

The kick off time might have been a deciding factor for his mum and dad if George had asked to go, as England didn't start until 8pm on Wednesday, compared with 5pm last week.

George will have had to get up on Thursday for school at Thomas's Battersea, where his sister Charlotte goes too.

The final is also due to kick off at 8pm on Sunday evening, meaning parents William and Kate will have to assess whether it would be too late a night for the seven-year-old.

William had to go alone on Wednesday evening as Kate is self-isolating.

The duchess has been told she was in close contact with someone who later tested positive for coronavirus so is having to self-isolate despite being double vaccinated and regularly returning negative COVID tests.

If George does get to go, it likely won't be announced beforehand, and it won't be listed on the court circular, which tracks all the engagements carried out by the royals.

William attends in his capacity as the president of the FA, but he has made it clear he was there as a fan as well during the matches against Germany and Denmark, as he could be seen cheering along when the team scored.

George, a future king, is an England fan, revealed in pictures released for his sixth birthday which showed him in an England jersey.

William traditionally supports Wales in the rugby as he is vice patron of the Welsh RFU.

He sent a message of support to the Welsh football team during their Euros 2016 run, but has been more vocal in support for England this time around. 

England play Italy in the final of the Euros on Sunday, 11 July. It's the first time since 1966, when they won the World Cup, that they have made the final of a major competition.

And George will almost certainly be desperate to attend.
