"Why is Prince George in a SUIT at Wimbledon on a hot day?? Tf he’s a child at a tennis tournament," one Twitter user wrote, per 7News.com.au.
"Prince George sweltering in the heat at Wimbledon. Why is he wearing a tie? Why is he wearing a jacket? No wonder he’s hot poor little lad. Idiots dressing him like this," another wrote.
"Prince George looks middle-aged in his suit," a third user added. "It’s too hot for a suit today, seriously let the kid have some fun and be more relaxed."
Meanwhile, some defended the future king and queen consort. According to them, Prince George looked fine, so they should not bother.
"Some people are so dim on here. If Prince George was hot he would take off his own jacket. He’s a big boy. William and Catherine have it all in order," one Cambridge fan wrote.
