Dressed casually in a white England shirt, the schoolboy appears to be following in the footsteps of his football-loving dad Prince William, who is president of the Football Association and an Aston Villa supporter.

Prince George has showed his love of the beautiful game after a cute photo of him wearing a replica white England football shirt, which was released by Kensington Palace to mark his sixth birthday.

The eldest child of Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, who turns six tomorrow, beamed a huge smile and could not contain his laughter in a series of snaps to mark the special occasion.

In one picture, George stands proud in the colours of the three lions as he grins down the camera lens for his mother Kate.
