Prince George stole all our hearts at the weekend when he was spotted celebrating Aston Villa's goal during a trip to watch the football with his family.

The little royal couldn't hide his delight and punched the air in joy as his dad's team scored their fourth goal against Norwich.

He was at the game with his parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and sister Princess Charlotte, and the off-duty family seemed to really enjoy their day out.

But during George's adorable and excited celebrations, many fans believed they saw dad Wills leaning over and telling him to '冷静' .

And it turns out there might have been a very caring reason for his gentle warning.

According to Hello! , the family were sitting in Norwich ground Carrow Road's South Stand, and were surrounding by a lot of home supporters.

So there's a chance William wanted to teach his son to be mindful that most of the people around him were losing quite badly, and it wasn't nice to rub their success in.

Photos and videos of George's celebrations went mad on social media, and fans couldn't get enough.

"How adorable is Prince George cheering on his (and daddy's) team? He was so excited William had to tell him to 冷静," tweeted one fan.

Another added: "威廉王子 telling George to 冷静 might be the best thing I've ever witnessed."

Wills has been a Villa fan for years and is often spotted at their games, but it's the first time we've seen him take George and Charlotte along.

Explaining his love for the club back in 2015 he said: "A long time ago at school I got into football big time. I was looking around for clubs. All my friends at school were either Man United fans or Chelsea fans and I didn’t want to follow the run of the mill teams.

Dad Wills had a quiet word with him

“I wanted to have a team that was more mid-table that could give me more emotional rollercoaster moments.

“Aston Villa’s always had a great history. I have got friends of mine who support Aston Villa and one of the first FA Cup games I went to was Bolton v Aston Villa back in 2000. Sadly, Villa went on to lose to Chelsea.

“It was fantastic, I sat with all the fans with my red beanie on, and I was sat with all the Brummie fans and had a great time.
