Prince George’s crestfallen expression summed up how the entire nation felt tonight after England’s devastating loss in the Euros.

The Three Lions were left heartbroken after Italy beat them in the final seconds of the nail-biting final after prevailing in a penalty shootout.

Fans were left devastated after the nation’s dreams of being crowned champions of Europe in front of a home crowd at Wembley Stadium were quickly dashed.

Seven-year-old Prince George’s pure reactions throughout the night have captured the nation’s highs and lows throughout the historic showdown.

The third in line to the throne, who sat in between Kate and William, adorably cheered in disbelief after Luke Shaw dribbled England to its first goal within just two minutes of the game starting.

But his reaction soon turned to devastation after England missed three penalties to seal the deal for Italy.

The red-cheeked young royal looked dejected and quiet, as dad William protectively stood behind his eldest son with his hands on his shoulders.

Kate, who patriotically wore a white blazer and bright red earrings, put her arm around the pair as she too looked upset at the result.

Following the crushing defeat, Prince William rushed to console the squad telling them to ‘hold your heads high’.

He wrote on Twitter: ‘Heartbreaking. Congratulations @Azzurri on a great victory. @England, you’ve all come so far, but sadly this time it wasn’t our day.

‘You can all hold your heads high, and be so proud of yourselves – I know there’s more to come.’

A win would have been the men’s football team’s first major tournament win since the 1966 World Cup success, which also took place at Wembley.

‘Gutted’ fans said they remained proud of the team after their penalty defeat.
