Prince William has made his first public appearance since his wife, Catherine, disclosed her cancer diagnosis.

The 41-year-old heir to the British throne was spotted at a football match between Aston Villa and Lille, accompanied by his son, Prince George.

Both father and son were seen cheering and applauding as Aston Villa secured a 2-1 victory in the first leg of the Europa Conference League quarter-final on Thursday night.

Last month, the Princess of Wales, 42, revealed she is undergoing cancer treatment following abdominal surgery. This announcement came shortly after King Charles III, William's father, shared that he too is receiving treatment for an unspecified cancer.

While King Charles continues to fulfill official duties behind closed doors and recently attended an Easter Sunday service, he is not engaging in public engagements.

Prince William has long been a devoted football enthusiast, supporting Birmingham-based Aston Villa since his school days. Additionally, he holds the position of president at the Football Association (FA).
