Prince William Says He Can't Wait To Be A Dad

Prince William talks impending fatherhood and reveals he can't wait to be a dad

Prince William has said he can't wait to meet his first child and get stuck into fatherhood - even though he knows he's in for some sleepless nights!

The Royal dad-to-be was visiting a new Help the Heroes centre in Wiltshire when he opened up about his impending arrival - admitting that he has been getting a lot of 'knowing looks' from mums when he gets too enthusiastic about daddy-duties!

The Prince was asked: "Are you looking forward to it, sir?" by Corporal Josh Boggi, a triple amputee who greeted him at the centre. "Very much so," William replied, but added: "All the mothers have been looking at me, 'Just you wait, just you wait. Long sleepless nights.'"

Prince William and Kate Middleton's baby is due in mid July.

Corporal Boggi, 26, from Binfield, Berkshire, was carrying his two and a half-year-old son Jenson as he chatted to William, and asked the Prince if he wanted to get in a bit of practice by holding him.
William jokingly declined, telling him: "No, no, you''re very kind!"

Prince Harry officially opened the Help the Heroes recovery centre at Tedworth House with his brother, Prince Harry. The centre will provide support for wounded and sick military personnel and veterans.
