As with most loving dads, Prince William worries about his kids.
He worries about their future, about their health and in a bittersweet revelation, the man who lost his own mother when he was just 15, worries that he won’t get to see them grow up.
The Duke of Cambridge has admitted in an interview that fatherhood has made him a more “emotional” person and helped him understand just how “precious life is.”
Prince William and his brother Prince Harry sat down at Kensington Palace for a documentary celebrating 40 years of Prince Charles’ charity The Prince’s Trust.
The 33-year-old told Ant and Dec about his own father and how having children had changed him. “I'm a lot more emotional than I used to be, weirdly,” he said.
He added that after having George, who is two-and-a-half and Charlotte, who turns one in May he cries a lot at the little things.
“I never used to get too wound up or worried about things. But now the smallest little things, you well up a little more, you get affected by the sort of things that happen around the world or whatever a lot more, I think, as a father," he continued.
The death of Prince William’s mother Princess Diana seemed to be at the forefront of his mind as he spoke of his life.
“Just because you realise how precious life is and it puts it all in perspective. The idea of not being around to see your children grow up and stuff like that," he said.
