So sweet! George gave his dad a big hug as they attended a children's party during the Cambridges' royal tour of Canada in 2016.

A nervous-looking George was spotted kissing his father's hand as the family arrived in Warsaw, Poland for their royal tour in 2017.

William dropped George off for his very first day at Thomas's School in Battersea in September 2017.

And it's not just football where the father and son have bonded, as William helpfully explained the rules of rugby to his young son when they headed to Twickenham to watch England play Wales.
