    Prince George proved he is the spitting image of his father Prince William as he enjoyed a slice of pizza during a surprise day out at the Ashes.

    The brand new images show William enjoying quality time with his nine-year-old while watching the second test at Lord's on Saturday (July 1).

    In one picture the future kings can be seen chatting inside the royal box, as the Prince of Wales appears to be explaining and pointing something to his eldest child, who will turn 10 later this month.

    George – who is shaping up to be quite the sports fan – looked to be following keenly as rivals England and Australia played out another thrilling day of cricket.

    The pair resembled each other closely, and George appeared again to 'mirror' his dad by emulating some of his gestures and dressing similarly.

    William wore a blue jacket above a light blue shirt, while his son was in a dark blue suit. Both opted for a relaxed style, with their top buttons undone.

    George looked especially pleased to be handed a replica of the famous Ashes urn in the series of images.

    Also in attendance was Rishi Sunak, who greeted William in the royal box alongside the ECB chairman, Richard Thompson.

    Moments after greeting Sunak himself, George tucked in to a slice of pizza as the adults spoke.

    William and George were later joined by actor and comedian Stephen Fry.

    The 65-year-old was spotted having an animated conversation with William and took the time to shake hands with George.

    The Princess of Wales, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis did not attend the match.

    William and George have attended a number of football, rugby, tennis and cricket matches together over the last few years, and back in April were seen on the edge of their seats during a Premier League clash at Villa Park.

    Alongside sport, the young royal's interests also spread to art, and he is said to have inherited a keenness for painting from the King and Prince Philip.

    Discussions over his future education are now thought to be beginning as George reaches the upper end of primary school age.

    Recently, the prince was spotted making a visit to Eton alongside parents William and Kate.

    George has been schooled at Lambrook School in Berkshire since September last year, but a visit to the prestigious public school on Wednesday – which costs £46,000 a year in fees – has sparked talks on whether he will now follow in his father's footsteps.

    Prince William also attended the historic boys' school near Windsor as a child from 1995, while King Charles III attended Scottish boarding school Gordonstoun – which he reportedly hated.

    He is currently at Lambrook with Princess Charlotte and brother Prince Louis, and before that was enrolled at St Thomas' in Battersea, London.
