Prince William is looking forward to the opportunity to raise his children himself, but he is already preparing to face a bit of drama (and possibly a broken bone or two) along the way!
Long gone are the days when the royal children of the United Kingdom were raised with a certain distance. Back then the children were most of the time taken cared of by royal governesses, while their parents attended to their royal duties.
Princess Diana was well known for breaking the mold, opting to raise her sons herself in as normal an upbringing she could possibly provide.
And it looks like her oldest son Prince William, the Duke Of Cambridge, and his wife Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge, have decided to follow a similar path with their own children, two year old Prince George and his nine month old sister Princess Charlotte.
Being hands on is not easy for any parent, but it is rewarding and the Prince is preparing himself.
William spoke about his situation at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales ahead of the France vs Wales Rugby Match held last Friday night, when he was asked how his children are?
"Very well" the Prince replied then added "No broken bones so far but they are trying - running around and pushing things and jumping."
And then he showed his worry like any typical parent "Please tell me it gets easier. Charlotte is very easy, she is sweet. But all the fathers say to me 'just you wait, when they get to 9 or 11 they get crazy'" he jokingly revealed.
Although justifiably a little nervous, Prince William seemed positive and evidently relished the concept of raising his children. "I'm looking forward to it. There will be some drama" he honestly stated.
Prince William attended the Rugby match as part of his royal duty, although he and his brother Harry are already well known Rugby fans. It is in connection with his role as the Vice Royal Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU)
He is also the patron of the Welsh Rugby Charitable trust which offers support, care, and opportunities for former players and by extension their families. During the event William spoke to several players in the Rugby Union who were injured.
