Prince George, who recently turned eight, was snapped last month while he cheered on England in the Euro 2020 final against Italy alongside his parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
Fans took to social media to share their delight at seeing the little boy – also the future King – looking smart in a suit and tie and hugging Will and Kate when England scored early on in the match.
Little George could also be seen looking sad after the England squad narrowly lost to Italy on penalties.
Following the important game, the eight-year-old received online trolling, which Will and Kate are likely to have been upset by, claims royal biographer Angela Levin.
Speaking on True Royal TV, she said: "They’ve been so upset by the rudeness of people mocking a little boy.
"I hope they can overcome that."
Recently, a source also told Us Weekly that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were worried about their eldest son growing up in the world of social media.
The source said: "Of course, William and Kate are nervous about what the future holds for George.
"He’s growing up in a different era to his parents.
"Times have changed since then.
"There wasn’t social media or internet trolls when William and Kate were children.
"The Cambridges feel it’s necessary to shield George, Charlotte and Louis from the spotlight and have become cautious about the appearances [they] make.
"Kate and William are being more selective about the events he attends."
Prince George facing 'PR nightmare as first royal to grow up with social media'
The Prince was also photographed by his mother to mark his birthday, looking happy as he perched on the bonnet of a Land Rover Defender in a nod to his great-grandfather, Prince Philip, who passed away aged 99 in April.
He was casually dressed in a polo-style striped top and shorts.
In the new HBO Max television show, The Prince, George also came under scrutiny, a move that is unlikely to have been received well by William and Kate.
Although the show pokes fun at every member of the Royal Family, much of the programme focuses on mocking young George and his siblings, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3.
Women's rights activist and author Dr. Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, recently said on Good Morning Britain: “Bottom line, children are off limits.
“Creating a parody to poke fun at an eight-year-old is not funny.
"It’s uncalled for, and it goes against our collective sense of responsibility.”
