Kate Middleton and Prince William kicked off their two-day visit to Northern Ireland with a game of football yesterday.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went head-to-head in a match as they joined children for a friendly at Windsor Park football stadium, home of the Irish Football Association (IFA).
Despite keeping up with the group of young girls, Kate, 37, revealed to schoolchildren that five-year-old Prince George is also learning to play the game.
But it turns out the young prince is not pleased with his mum’s skills on the pitch.
“I should have picked up some tips from George”
According to The Telegraph, Kate revealed that George tells her: “Mummy, you’re so rubbish.”
Telling another group of kids, Kate joked: “I should have picked up some tips from George.”
William, 36, also had some fun at the expense of his wife, telling the youngsters to “look out, she goes for the ankles”, during their match.
After being welcomed to the stadium, the Cambridge’s were given a short history of the Irish Football Association before meeting goalkeeper Pat Jennings.
The Duke, who is the president of the FA, said: “Now there’s a man who needs no introduction.”
Kate and William also headed home with some gifts for their children, George, Princess Charlotte, three, and Prince Louis.
Speaking previously to the England’s Women’s Football Team, William told the ladies that he was having some trouble teaching his firstborn how to play the sport.
Player Casey Stoney said: “He said at the moment he’s trying to teach George that football is actually a contact sport.
“But George doesn’t really like it when he’s palming him off and getting physical.”
