Prince William and Prince George traveled to France to support Wales in the Rugby World Cup on Saturday, October 14.
The Prince of Wales, 41, and his eldest son, 10, were twinning in their navy suits with red ties to support the Welsh team at Stade Velodrome in Marseille. William opted for a white shirt while his son opted for a light blue button-down. Unfortunately, their father-son outing didn’t result in a victory.

The first and second in line to the British throne also visited the players in the locker room after the game to share their condolences after the loss.

“It’s that camaraderie, that relationship-building [and] learning to lose, which I think we’ve got to concentrate more on nowadays. I think people don’t know how to lose well,” he explained while on Mike Tindall’s “The Good, The Bad & The Rugby” podcast with Kate, 41, and Princess Anne. “Talking about our children in particular, I want to make sure they understand that. It’s really important from a young age to understand how to lose and why we lose and then to grow from it through that process.”
Kate — who shares George, Princess Charlotte, 8, and Prince Louis, 5, with William — added that they also try to teach their kids “how to win well” without boasting or seeming arrogant.
