X user @RoyallyBelle_ described the special moment on the social media platform: ‘Watching Prince William and Prince George meeting representatives of the Welsh and Argentinian rugby associations before the match.
‘Their mannerisms are so similar! Really lovely to see William guiding his son and gently introducing him to the world stage’.
The video unfolds with a confident George leading the way ahead of his father, as he steps in to offer a thorough handshake to one of the representatives.
George was a mini-me of William, with both wearing matching navy suits, red ties and smart black leather shoes.
Proving he was born for the role, he glided with ease and even stepped backwards for a short moment to allow his father to follow in his own footsteps and offer a handshake too.
As the pair made small talk with their guests, they began to unwittingly simulate each other’s actions, all the way down to their twinning smiles.
The pait first clapped their hands together simultaneously, before continuing to subtly pace from side-to-side.
And as they moved on to their next guest, they even appeared to emulate the same swagger in their walks as they stepped forward – again in unison.
