The Duke of Cambridge, a big Villa fan, attended the big clash at Wembley stadium today to cheer his side on.
He was pictured breaking into celebration as Villa scored just before halftime to put one foot in the Premier League.
The Prince was seen erupting into joy again when Villa bagged the second goal to make it 2-0, before the Rams equalised.
He then leapt out of his seat after the nervy closing moments culminated in Villa winning 2-1 and promoting to the Premier League.
But while Wills was joined by former Villa player John Carew in the box, there was a noticeable royal absence – his son.
Prince George was not seen with his dad despite Wills himself saying George is a Villa supporter.
Wills had previously said that George, aged five, will be a Villa fan when speaking in 2013, saying: “When Villa thrash Man U at Villa Park, my son will be there.”
Kate Middleton has also hinted George to be a Villan, with a student who met her on a royal engagement saying: “Kate told me that George and Charlotte love putting on Villa kits.
“I told her I am an Arsenal fan, so I don’t really like Villa kits,” to which Kate jokingly replied: “I have to be loyal to my husband!”
George has also been gifted Villa football kits by the West Midlands club in the past whenever Wills has paid a royal visit to Villa Park.
Charlotte has also been given claret and blue strips and is thought to take after her dad as a Villan.
Meanwhile the Queen reportedly supports Arsenal, and Kate apparently backs Chelsea.
