Prince George has had the honour of holding one of the most coveted prizes in tennis after watching Novak Djokovic defeat Nick Kyrgios in the men’s singles grand final at Wimbledon.

Tennis legend Djokovic was seen shaking hands with Prince William and his son, aged 8, after his name was added to the honours board in the All England Club for the seventh time.

As George smiled and gave the tennis champ a thumbs up, Djokovic passed him the trophy to hold.

However, after the Duchess of Cambridge pointed to the famous pineapple atop the trophy and George had had a chance to look at all the winners’ names engraved on the cup, the young prince declared it was “a bit heavy” and passed it on to his mother.

It comes after he appeared in the royal box alongside parents William and Kate to watch the action unfold. The young prince was spotted arriving at the club earlier in the day before being led inside by his mother.

It was Kate’s third appearance at the tournament, as she and Prince William arrived with George to watch the grand final.

Watching from the front row between his parents, the young prince was enthralled by the performance put on by the two tennis aces.

It was a big day for George, who is known to be a big tennis fan just like his mother.
