Prince Williams three-word warning to Prince George holding Wimbledon trophy

Prince William gave a wise three-word warning to his son Prince George as he managed to get his hands on the Wimbledon trophy.

The young royal cracked a smile when he met this year's tournament champion Novak Djokovic, who offered to let him hold the trophy.

The eight-year-old, who will celebrate his 9th birthday on July 22, was urged to not drop the coveted Wimbledon trophy by his father Prince William as he excitedly gripped the gold cup with both hands.

The Duke of Cambridge was overheard advising his son "don't drop it!" as he and his wife Kate Middleton stood on either side of George to congratulate Djokovic on his most recent win.

During the match, George sat between his parents the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in the prime seats in the royal box.

Kate, who is patron of the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club, looked summery in a navy blue skirt and matching top with white polka dots by designer Alessandra Rich.

Kate presented the trophy to Djokovic after he won his seventh Wimbledon singles championship, his fourth in a row, and his 21st grand slam crown in a tense three-hour final against a frustrated Nick Kyrgios.

The men's singles match comes with a backdrop of controversy as Kyrgios faces charges for common assault against a former partner in Australia.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Wimbledon with Prince George ahead of the men's singles final and were greeted by ball boys and girls, as well as staff in the Millennium building before crossing the bridge over cheering crowds into Centre Court.

They sat in the royal box to watch Kyrgios attempt to defeat the defending champion.

The royals first greeted a group of military personnel who are working as stewards at the championship – Lt Col Lucy Smith from the Army, deputy assistant commissioner Philip Morton from the London Fire Brigade, Lt Commander Chris Boucher from the Royal Navy and Sergeant Jacquie Crook from the Royal Air Force.

She then explained to George what the group members do, saying: "They look after everybody to make sure the crowds are safe and happy, doing the right thing, in the right seats, making sure the grounds are safe."

When asked about George coming to Wimbledon, she said: "Is this your first time? It is, isn't it?" to which he replied: "Yes".

George was also asked who he was going to support and appeared too shy to answer, so William looked at him and whispered: "Djokovic" before adding: "We'll see how long it lasts. He'll support the winner."
