Prince George's Favorite Daily Wake-Up Song Made Fans Smile

Prince George is not like any other kid in the world — he is most certainly going to be the King of England one day, so he will be protected at all costs, but nothing could shelter the young prince from England's devastating loss in the Euro 2020 final game in July 2021. As the game went into overtime and left fans around the world at the edge of their seat once it progressed into penalty shots, it was clear that one side would be devastated by the loss after such a fast-paced and exciting match. As England came to terms with their loss, George, too, was one of the people in the stadium who was deeply affected by the loss.
However, there were some exciting events throughout the match as well, such as England scoring their first goal early on. When this happened, George took the chance to embrace his mom and dad out of sheer joy, and fans loved seeing the rare public display of affection between the royals.
George attended the England vs. Italy match at Wembley Stadium in London with Prince William and Kate Middleton. This was his second time attending a Euro 2020 match with his parents — his first public match with his parents had ended far more happily after England defeated Germany and went ahead into the semi-finals on June 29, 2021. The sweet moment between George and his parents was caught on camera, as was his unfettered delight at the prospect of a potential win, and it showed that Geroge is just like any other kid when it comes to soccer.

News.com.au reported that royal fans have gone wild for Prince George's reaction when it came to England's early goal during the England vs. Italy game. England's first goal was scored by Luke Shaw in the first two minutes, which was a dream start and raised the hopes of English fans across the world and warranted some celebration. In the stands, George joined in and showed that he is just a regular kid as he joyfully jumped up and down. George reportedly begged Kate and William to let him attend the match, and it seemed quite worth it as England's chances of a win kept strong even up until the end.
George wore a fitted suit that matched his father's, which he had done previously when he attended the England vs. Germany match that saw England progress to the semi-finals. After this, George was labeled as England's "lucky charm," according to the news outlet. The Euro 2020 final gave England the opportunity to fight for the cup, which they have not won since 1966. Naturally, the devastating loss was deep for all English fans in the stadium, and George could not hide his distress either at the end of the nail-biting game.
However, the sweet moment when George hugged his parents in glee has already captured hearts across the world. After watching the video, one fan commented, "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."
Even though the Wales kids have argued in the past over which song they think deserves to be played that particular morning, William revealed that this is one song that always makes them happy and gets them dancing.
"One of the songs that the children are loving at the moment is Shakira's 'Waka Waka,'" he said. "There's a lot of hip movements going along with a lot of dressing up. Charlotte particularly is running around the kitchen, in her dresses and ballet stuff. She goes completely crazy with Louis following her around trying to do the same thing."
However, the Prince of Wales explained that his music taste is a bit different from that of George, Charlotte, and Louis. Instead, William typically likes to listen to rock music to help get his morning moving along.
"There's nothing better than, on a Monday morning, when you're a bit bleary-eyed after the weekend and trying to get yourself back into the grind of the week, listening to AC/DC's 'Thunderstruck,'" he said. "It absolutely wakes you up, puts your week in the best mood possible, and you feel like you can take on anything and anyone."
It's clear that the love for music runs in the family, as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also like to play music for their children. According to Yahoo News, "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" is one of their favorite tracks to play for their son Archie.

We all probably put the same song on repeat at one point in our lives — especially those with catchy tunes. And when you're a kid, chances are, your parents would pick nursery rhymes, either to keep you awake or to let you fall asleep. In the case of Prince George, one might assume that it's 'London Bridge Is Falling Down,' no pun intended. But as it turns out, the second-in-line to the British throne is too old for songs like that.
Apparently, Prince George is a fan of the 'Three Lions' football anthem, which many also dubbed the "unofficial English football anthem." Comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner, along with the band The Lightning Seeds, released the song in 1996. It eventually became a smash hit following the men's England team's achievement in the finals for the first time in decades, which left fans singing along to the song to celebrate the success.
At 65 years old, comedian Frank Sinner said he didn't expect to find his biggest fan in a member of the British royalty — much less an eight-year-old kid who likes listening to his song every day since the 2018 World Cup. In case you're wondering how big of a fan he is, he had a football-themed birthday party in 2019.
But Sinner revealed he discovered Prince George was a fan of his song when he had a conversation with Prince William at the Royal Variety Show.
"He spoke to me for quite a while and he said 'I listen to your football song every morning.' And well, I thought that's gotta be a lie. But they lie, the royal family? And I said 'Really?' and he said 'Yeah, George insists that we play it every morning,'" Sinner said in an interview with Lorraine.
