Prince William has revealed he has struggled at times with his journey into fatherhood in a candid interview about his family.

The Duke of Cambridge said he worries about the future more now that he has two children to bring up.

“It’s been quite a change for me personally,” he said when asked about being a dad on English-language talk show ‘Talk Vietnam’ on 18 November. 

“I’ve struggled at times. The alteration from being a single independent man to going into marriage and then having children is life-changing.”

The Duke thanked his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, saying he’s “lucky” to have her consistent support.

“She’s an amazing mother and a fantastic wife,” he said. 

The 34-year-old went on to gush about his children and their flourishing personalities.

“I adore my children very much and I’ve learned a lot about myself and about family just from having my own children,” he said.

“George is a right little rascal sometimes, he keeps me on my toes but he’s a sweet boy.

“And Charlotte, bearing in mind I haven’t had a sister so having a daughter is a very different dynamic, I’m learning about having a girl in the family.”

The Duke said he wants his children to grow up with simple aspirations in life. 

“I think there’s a lot of huge aspirations and people living with an enormous amount of stuff that they don’t necessarily need,” he said.

“The materialism of the world I find quite tricky sometimes.”
