Prince George seen with Prince William for first time since Kate’s cancer announcement

Three weeks after his mom shared her cancer diagnosis with the world, Prince George was seen publicly for the first time.

The young prince’s appearance comes after a family friend told People that Prince William and Princess Kate’s three children have been resilient as they watch their mom receive cancer treatment. “You take heart from the extraordinary resilience of children,” the friend told People.

Admitting that having fun together when they can is very important, the insider told People, “the children are at the center of their world.”

And that’s exactly what George was seen doing on April 11 when his dad, William, took him to a football match. The father and son pair were seen wearing Aston Villa soccer gear while cheering on their favorite team from the stands.

As sports journalist Neil Moxley reported on X, formerly Twitter, as they were leaving the stadium, William was asked if George was “part of the pride” now. To which William responded saying, “Oh yes, he’s loving it.”

It was a great night for Villa and “the pride,” what the organization calls its fan base, who beat Lille 2 to 1.

This outing comes after Kate Middleton revealed she was diagnosed with cancer after undergoing serious abdominal surgery earlier this year.

On March 22, she made the announcement via a video shared on Instagram. The princess called the diagnosis “a huge shock.”

“Tests after the operation found cancer had been present. My medical team therefore advised that I should undergo a course of preventative chemotherapy, and I am now in the early stages of that treatment.”

Middleton continued to say that her and William’s focus has been on their three children during her time away from the public eye.

“Most importantly, it has taken us time to explain everything to George, Charlotte and Louis in a way that is appropriate for them, and to reassure them that I am going to be OK.”

After reassuring the world she will be okay, the princess continued, also thanking her husband for being “a great source of comfort and reassurance.”
