In the presentation ceremony after the match, William was presented with a mini polo stick for Prince George by Audi UK director Martin Sander.

William jokingly asked if it was nappies, quipping: "I've got to pick some up on my way home."

The 31-year-old admitted it was "good to get out of the house" for an afternoon.

Meeting guests afterwards, he added: "He likes to move around a lot, he wriggles a lot, he keeps us on our toes."
