To us mere mortals, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge look like they have the perfect marriage. But that doesn’t mean, like any other couple, they’re not prone to a little jealousy here and there.
With his wife Kate Middleton still on maternity leave, Prince William, who is currently on a solo tour in Africa, jokingly spoke about how the Duchess of Cambridge is envious she couldn’t join him on his trip.
And no, it isn’t because she wants to join her husband of seven years travelling across the globe. It’s for one simple reason that any (sleep-deprived) parent of a new baby will instantly relate to.
“I’m delighted to be visiting Namibia for the first time,” Prince William said during a speech at Tuesday night’s British High Commissioner’s reception in Namibia.
“I’m only sorry that my wife, Catherine, is not able to join me. She is immensely jealous. Particularly because I’m looking forward to a few good, uninterrupted nights’ sleep this week away from my wonderful children.”
While Kate remains in England with their three children – Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three, and Prince Louis, five months – William is touring Africa, including Tanzania and Kenya, as president of the United for Wildlife organisation and patron of Tusk.
Kenya holds a special place in the Cambridges’ hearts as it’s the place where William proposed to Kate during a 2010 holiday.
