"One of the sweetest royal moments ever! It's not surprising that the babies are such cuddle monsters. With W&K as their parents, the little ones will grow up just as affectionate. They've already inherited their parents' love of sports," one fan commented.

"Seeing St George, sorry Prince George give a hug to mum & dad was the best thing I’ve seen all year," another one remarked.

A third added: "Prince George hugging his mum and dad after the goal was just the cutest [expletive] I've seen in a while."

The family had a great time at the stadium despite England's loss and were surrounded by stars such David Beckham, who took his daughter Harper and son Cruz with him, and Hollywood star Tom Cruise.

Following the end of the game, in which England lost to Italy during the penalties, the Duke took to Twitter to reveal his heartbreak but also to console the team.

"Heartbreaking. Congratulations @Azzurri on a great victory. @England, you've all come so far, but sadly this time it wasn't our day. You can all hold your heads high, and be so proud of yourselves — I know there's more to come. W," he wrote on Twitter.
