In his fist newspaper interview since his wife gave birth to baby George, Prince William has described to a world full of Mothers and Fathers what it is like to be a parent.
Speaking about the first nappy change, William explained how he coped with the experience. “I found that it is harder than it looks, and it took me quite some time to remember the nanny’s number. That said, once I had summoned her she was very good. She even let us leave the room so we could avoid any nasty odours.”
Asked what equipment he has now he has a baby, he told us he was very pleased with the quality of the baby monitors he has dotted around the place. “They are really good and are amazingly clear, and only cost minimum wage. They will even use Skype so we can see him when he is in another room.”
One thing the prince was not enjoying was the sleepless nights. He said “since little George was born, we have barely slept. It seems he is a bit of a night owl and is intent on keeping the whole palace up, but Harry has promised he will stop ‘wetting the baby’s head’ next week. Luckily, George sleeps through it, I think. I should check in his wing one night, but the staff haven’t mentioned any issues.
He finished by saying he was looking forward to returning to his job as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot, and that Catherine also couldn’t wait to return to work, whatever that is.
