Prince William is getting candid about putting fatherhood first.

In a new interview, the Duke of Cambridge, 33, gushed about being a dad to kids Prince George and Princess Charlotte. “I’m concentrating very much on my role as a father,” he revealed to the BBC. “I’m a new father, and I take my duties and my responsibilities to my family very seriously.”

“I want to bring my children up as good people with the idea of service and duty to others as very important. But if I can’t give my time to my children as well, I worry about their future,” he said of George, 2, and Charlotte, 11 months.

“As far as we’re concerned, within our family unit we are a normal family,” he said of his parenting style with wife Kate Middleton. “I love my children the same way any father does, and I hope George loves me the same way any son does to his father, so we are very normal in that sense.”

“There’ll be a time and a place to bring George up and understand how he fits in the world,” William added. “But right now, it’s just a case of keeping a secure, stable environment around him and showing him as much love as I can as a father.” So cute!
