He may be a royal but that doesn’t mean the Duke of Cambridge doesn’t share the same struggles as regular parents.
The 35-year-old spoke candidly about the thing he finds most hard about being a parent to George and Charlotte.
Speaking at the Wales vs Australia Rugby match over the weekend, William said that he finds it hard to stay awake some days.
Wales Online reports the royal telling spectators: “I do need toothpicks to keep my eyes open because of the kids.”
With another baby on the way, he’s probably going to find it more difficult to get some shut eye.
Still, it’s good to see that the royals are relatable.
Just last week, the Duchess of Cambridge admitted that she struggled to leave George at school some mornings.
She said: “As a mother just getting used to leaving my own child at the school gates, it is clear to me that it takes a whole community to help raise a child.”
During today’s visit to Hornsey Road Children's Centre, The Duchess saw the facilities which support local parents and young children, and learnt more about Family Action's perinatal mental health services which operate nationwide. The Duchess also heard some of the personal experiences from parents who have benefited from the charity's support.
The loved-up couple have been making several public appearances over the past few weeks.
Catherine visited the Horsney Road Children’s Centre in London.
She happily chatted with parents, children and staff at the centre and was all smiles as she watched some small toddlers play.
The Kensington Royal Instagram page shared some snaps from the day on their page.
Catherine also spoke with parents about how William first adjusted to being a new parent.
One of the fathers at the event spoke to Hello Magazine about a conversation he had with her, explaining that she told him that William initially struggled with parenthood.
