Why Prince William’s parenting advice might be a bit off

The dad of 2 is under the impression things are about to get easier for a time. Yeah right…


With a 9-month-old daughter and 2-year-old son – it’s fair to say Prince William has his hands pretty full at the moment.


The dad of 2 has admitted boisterous Prince George is “running around and pushing things and jumping” while baby Charlotte is “very easy” – for now.

“No broken bones so far but they are trying,” he said.

Just wait until she’s running around with him!

“Please tell me it gets easier,” Wills sighed, as he chatted about his children when he was in Cardiff to support Wales in the RBS 6 Nations game against France this weekend.

But we have to question where Prince William is getting his parenting advice from – because he seems to think he’s got a quieter period coming up.


“All the fathers say to me ‘just you wait, when they get to 9 or 11 they get crazy’,” he said. “I’m looking forward to it. There will be some drama.”

Err… yeah. We’d say there’s a fair few dramas to come before they reach 9.

What about the tantrums at 3…

… The dreaded ‘no’ phase at 4

… Tears at the school gates at 5

… Answering back at 6

… Fallouts with friends at 7

… Getting in trouble with the teacher at 8…?

It’s fair to say ALL ages have their difficulties (and their joys too, of course).
