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.

“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.”
