You would think a trip away from his young family would give the Duke of Cambridge some time to relax. But when his long weekend away was to France to watch England in action at Euro 2016, it was never going to be an opportunity for the father-of-two to unwind.

Emotional roller-coaster: Prince William was clearly caught up in the game judging by the catalogue of animated expressions he wore.

Hope fades: These photographs taken in St Etienne last night show Prince William being put through the ringer by the Three Lions' toothless performance against Slovakia.

How did he miss? The second in line to the throne can be seen hiding behind his hands, throwing his arms into the air and vocally venting his frustrations as Roy Hodgson's men struggled against the Group B minnows.

Not tonight: Wayne Rooney vents his frustrations as even he failed to break the deadlock for England. Prince William (right) looked unimpressed.

Could be better, lads: England were watched by Prince William who cut a distinctly glum figure as Roy Hodgson's side laboured to a bore 0-0 draw against Slovakia in Saint-Etienne.
