However, George's grandmother, and Kate's mother, Carole Middleton might have dropped a hint as to what may be involved with the young royal's party. Carole is the founder of Party Pieces, and the company recently released a whole set of football-themed goodies. Items include paper plates in the shape of a football and balloons shaped like a golden trophy.

The youngster was also noticeably upset when England lost in last year's rescheduled 2020 European Championships final and he also wore an England shirt for birthday pictures taken for his seventh birthday by his mum.

And who could forget his enthusiastic reaction after England scored against Italy in the finals of last year's Euros?
