William and George are both Villa fans and their side is now in the quarter finals of the competition. They travelled to Villa Park for the first leg match against Lille OSC.

And it was a good night for the royal fans as Aston Villa secured a 2-1 win to give them the upper hand in the two part tie.

The Prince of Wales and Prince George were seen celebrating as Villa scored their two goals and were later spotted chatting to other fans as they made their way through the stadium on their way out.

Prince William is a long time Aston Villa supporter and his eldest son now shares his passion for the team.

Prince George is currently on his Easter school holidays along with Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The Wales family are reported to have spent most of the break in Norfolk as the Princess of Wales continues her treatment for cancer.
