As if the royal family couldn’t be any more lovable, Prince William recently admitted that the leap into parenthood has been something he’s “struggled at times” with.
The oh-so-relatable confession came out of a recent interview with “Talk Vietnam,” where he told the show’s host Tran Thuy Duong that “there’s wonderful highs and wonderful lows” to becoming a father.
And even though wife Kate Middleton has been nothing but supportive, the transition is one that he’s working on becoming more in tune with.

“I’ve struggled at times. The alteration from being a single, independent man to going into marriage and then having children is life-changing,” he said.
That’s not to say, though, he’s not happy being a dad. The reality is quite the opposite.
“I adore my children very much, and I’ve learned a lot about myself and about family just from having my own children. It’s amazing how much you pick up in just those moments.”
He admits, jokingly, that Prince George can be a “right little rascal” but that he’s actually very sweet. It’s having a daughter that has taken some getting used to!
“I haven’t had a sister, so having a daughter is a very different dynamic. So I’m learning about having a daughter, having a girl in the family.”
And though navigating parenthood has been hazy, he was absolutely certain about the legacy he hopes Prince George and Princess Charlotte will carry on.

“I would like them to grow up with more simple aspirations. I think there’s a lot of huge aspirations and people living with an enormous amount of stuff that they don’t necessarily need. The materialism of the world I find quite tricky sometimes.”
It all comes down to basics, really. Or so that’s what it seems the royal family hopes to instill in their children.
“I would like George and Charlotte to grow up being a little bit more simple in their approach and their outlook, and just looking after those around them and treating others as they would like to be treated themselves.”
