Get it together, Kate Middleton! The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were recently in Northern Ireland were they found themselves playing soccer with some local kids. And it seems like Prince George wasn’t exactly impressed with his mom’s playing skills, as he made his opinion of it very well known.
On Wednesday, February 27 the royal pair kicked off their two-day tour of Northern Ireland and headed to Windsor Park Stadium in Belfast to learn about the Irish Football Association’s community soccer projects. The duo even hit the field to partake in some drills. And even though Kate, 37, did her best to keep up with the young girls, the mother-of-three informed the group of students that George, 5, is learning how to play soccer and is not happy with his mother’s skills.
“Mummy, you’re so rubbish,” Prince William‘s wife said her son told her, according to The Telegraph. “I should have picked up some tips from George,” she added. Even William, 36, couldn’t help himself, as he told the students to “look out, she goes for the ankles!” during the game.
This isn’t the first time that the couple have been in Ireland as they previously visited Belfast in March 2011, where Kate took part in a pancake flipping contest with the local citizens for a charity fundraiser. Five years later they returned to go to the Secretary of State’s annual garden party. And that wasn’t the end of their Ireland adventures. In October 2016, Kate and William once again headed to Ireland, this time to support Inspire, a charity that offers mental health support services to people who need it the most.
Well, when the royal couple does return sometime in the near future, let’s just hope they don’t venture out to play some tennis, and that’s only because we learned last year that George’s dad was apparently trying to get him to also grab a racquet and hit the court — so of course he will be ready to judge their skills!
