Recently, Prince William has opened up about the realities of parenthood, revealing that even though he’s a member of the royal family, he still suffers from sleep deprivation! The proud dad to Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, made the hilarious confession as he chatted with fellow attendees at the Wales vs. Australia rugby game in Cardiff, Wales on Saturday, Nov. 11.
“I do need toothpicks to keep my eyes open because of the kids,” he said before launching into a discussion about the match. Of course, the royal household is about to become a whole lot more hectic. William and his wife, Kate Middleton, are currently expecting their third little prince or princess in April 2018.
The beloved couple has not yet confirmed the baby’s exact due date, however, there’s a chance the new royal addition could share his or her birthday with their great-granny, Queen Elizabeth, who will celebrate her 92nd on April 21. Or, if the royal baby were to arrive later in the month, his or her grand entrance could coincide with the Duke and Duchess’s seventh wedding anniversary on April 29.
Prince William has previously opened up about the impending arrival. The royal recently dropped by a National Mental Health and Policing Conference in Oxford, England to give the keynote address. There, he spoke about the happy news while also providing a health update on his wife of six years as she continues to suffer from extreme morning sickness or hyperemesis gravidarum — the same nasty condition she battled while pregnant with their two previous children.
“It’s very good news,” he said. “We need Catherine to get over this first bit and then we can start celebrating. It’s always a bit anxious to start with, but she’s well.” William’s brother, Prince Harry, has also given his two cents on the exciting news. “Fantastic, great,” he told reporters outside a scheduled appearance shortly after the news made headlines the world over, adding a thumbs up. “Very, very happy for them.” Congratulations again to the soon-to-be family-of-five!
