Prince William on Charlotte
Published: May 20, 2015
Prince William on Charlotte, The Duke of Cambridge is suffering from sleepless nights caused by his baby daughter Princess Charlotte, he has disclosed.
The Duke, 32, told members of the England women’s football team that he had his hands full dealing with his new arrival and her boisterous brother Prince George.
“All the girls were asking how Princess Charlotte is and Prince George and whether they keep him up all night,” said Steph Houghton, captain of the team.
“He was saying he’s obviously really enjoying being a father and Princess Charlotte is actually keeping him up and probably why his eyes are looking a little bit tired.”
Ms Houghton said Prince George would “hopefully” catch the footballing bug, adding: “He was saying he never stops moving and is always on the move and keeping them busy.”
Fellow player Jill Scott said: “He said he’d had a few sleepless nights. The baby will be up and George is running around now isn’t he? It reflects that he does a normal life away from his duty as prince.”
The Duke had teamed up with the England Women’s World Cup squad at the National Football Centre before they jet off to start their campaign in Canada.
William, who is president of the Football Association, met the Lionesses’ head coach, Mark Sampson, and the senior women’s squad at St George’s Park in Staffordshire.
In a light moment, Aston Villa fan William quipped that he might be facing “a bad day” after the FA Cup final is played at Wembley on May 30, with Villa playing Arsenal for the trophy.
As FA president, he will be responsible for handing the cup to the winning side’s captain. He said: “It’s either going to be a very good day for me, or a very bad day.”
The Duke then posed for a photo with the women’s squad but, asked if anyone should say “Cheese”, he replied: “No, I think ‘Number one’ would be more appropriate.”
Sending the team off to the World Cup, Mr Sampson then gave a rousing address to his players, saying they were “an inspiration” to their generation of women and those to come.
