Prince George has spent most of his time in the public eye wearing a very mature suit and tie, but at the Platinum Jubilee, he might have been admiring a very different look. On an upcoming episode of The Jonathan Ross Show, singer Craig David said that he learned George was a fan of the blue sequin tracksuit he wore to perform at the jubilee’s Party at the Palace concert.
“Prince William walks over, he comes over, says, ‘My son George was going crazy for the blue sequined outfit that you were wearing,’” David said. “My mum was there, I said, ‘Lovely to meet you, love that George loved the outfit.’”
The meeting came during a “soirée” at the palace after the concert where David played two of his hit songs. David added that he was happy he was able to introduce his mother to William and Kate Middleton. “That moment for me, as a son [introducing my mother to William], was probably the most incredible moment for me. Then Kate comes over. Very memorable moment,” he said.
Due to poor health, Queen Elizabeth II only made a few public appearances during the jubilee, but the younger generation of royals were front and center during the various events. George and his siblings Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis were photographed making funny faces and playing with their extended family. William and Kate even joked about the attention on their younger son afterward on social media. Alongside a photo of Louis, they said, “We all had an incredible time, especially Louis…”
In the interview, David also talked about his admiration for King Charles III and his charity work. “I’m an ambassador of The Prince’s Trust,” he said of the charity Charles started in 1976. “He is another one. He’s a stand-up guy. Whenever I met him, it’s not the pretense of what could come with being a royal,” David said. “He’s very down-to-earth and he is very much an advocate for, ‘How can we help the young children?’”
