Prince William reveals struggles of being a parent

Prince William discusses the struggles of being a dad.

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.
