Prince George recently made headlines when he attended Wimbledon because of his outfit. Some eagle-eyed royal fans noticed that the 9-year-old was feeling extra hot in his suit. At one point, he even told Prince William that he was starting to feel hot, but the Duke of Cambridge seemingly urged his eldest son to suck it up.
Prince George Complained About Being Hot, But Prince William Seemingly Ignored Him
Following the outing, several royal fans and royal experts criticized Prince William because of his reaction to Prince George. Some of them claimed that Prince William and Kate Middleton should’ve dressed up their son in a more casual outfit.
However, royal biographer Duncan Larcombe claimed that Prince George was the one who insisted on wearing a suit because he idolizes Prince William and wanted to dress up like him, according to Express.
Prince William Wanted Prince George To Wear A Jersey To The Euro 2020 Final, But Kate Middleton Refused
But according to royal expert Daniela Esler, this wasn’t the first time that Prince George’s outfit caused division among certain individuals. In fact, Prince William and Middleton reportedly got into an argument over their son’s outfit during the Euro 2020 Final.
“There the little chap stood in the Royal Box, dressed in a suit and tie, looking like a tiny accountant or mid-level management consultant, while around him 65,000 Brits let loose in an eye-popping display of nationalist fervor and warm lager. Now, it has emerged that William and Kate disagreed over what the boy should be allowed to wear for the big game, with his father keen on him donning an England jersey and his mother pushing back, The [Daily] Telegraph reports,” she said (via Express).
At the time, Marion Bartoli, a Wimbledon champion, revealed that there was some discussion as to whether Prince George would be allowed to wear a jersey to Wembley or not.
For the outing, Prince George arrived at the venue in a suit. And Esler said that this proved who won the argument: Middleton.

Prince William, Kate Middleton Already Teaching Prince George The Royal Ropes
According to Larcombe, the Duchess of Cambridge is already showing Prince George the royal ropes even though he’s just 9 years old.
“He has to learn to don the royal armor. That doesn’t mean hiding his personality or feelings though — so George was encouraged to leap up and celebrate England scoring, to roar and wave and hug his mum and dad like any normal lad. And even to shed a tear when it all ended in heartbreak. George is only just beginning to understand his destiny, but Kate has got the journey planned,” he told OK! Magazine months ago.
Meanwhile, Prince George just celebrated his 9th birthday last week. Ahead of his special day, Prince William and Middleton shared a new portrait of the future king of Britain. Prince George is wearing a pastel blue polo shirt in the snap. And he’s also grinning from ear to ear. His newest photo was taken by his mom.
