Rare Interview: Prince William Reveals He Has Struggled With Parenting George, Charlotte During Visit In Vietnam
Even Royals have a difficult time raising their children as Prince William recently revealed during an interview in Vietnam that he at times struggles to be a parent to his two children, George and Charlotte. The interview has shocked a lot since he rarely gives candid talks during interviews.
Prince William was at the English-language talk show called "Talk Vietnam" in the country during his two-day visit. He is in Vietnam regarding illegal wildlife trade and went on the interview on his last days in the country.
The 34-year-old Royal father said during the interview that fatherhood has a lot of wonderful highs and lows. He was talking to the host, Tran Thuy Duong, when he noted that fatherhood changed him personally and that he is very lucky with the support he gets from his wife, Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. He went on to praise his wife saying that she is an amazing mother and a fantastic wife.
Prince William then talked about his struggle being a father to Prince George and Princess Charlotte. She shared, "I've struggled at times. The alteration from being a single, independent man to going into marriage and then having children is life-changing." He pointed out that he adores his children very much and he has learned a lot about himself as well as about family life, People reported.
Prince William also said that his son Prince George is both a sweet boy and a little rascal. As for Princess Charlotte, who is now 18 months old, he pointed out that he did not have a sister so having a daughter is a different dynamic for him specifically learning about having a girl in the family aside from his wife, Huffington Post Canada reported.
He was then questioned by a 10-year-old girl from the audience about his advice regarding the protection of wildlife. Prince William said that he worries about the future and that he would like his children to group up with more simple aspirations such as looking after those around them and treating others the way they want to be treated.
