Prince William’s fatherhood tears

Prince William says that being a father has made him “more emotional” and more prone to welling up.

In an interview with ITV, the 33-year-old father of two-year-old Prince George and eight-month-old Princess Charlotte said becoming a parent has made him more aware of “how precious life is.”

“I’m a lot more emotional than I used to be, weirdly. I never used to get too wound up or worried about things,” he told a documentary crew.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte have made proud dad Prince William realise “how precious life is”.

“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.

“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.”

The documentary, When Ant And Dec Met The Prince: 40 Years Of The Prince’s Trust, focuses on William’s father, Prince Charles, and his youth trust, set up in 1976.

In the documentary, William and his brother Prince Harry praise the “insurmountable amount of duty” in their dad.

It was believed to be the first time Prince Charles’ wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, had granted a televised interview.

She told the interviewers: “I’m really proud to be married to somebody who, 40 years ago, aged 27, had the vision to put [the trust] together – I mean, it was an incredible idea then.”

“For somebody – he was very young then – to think of it and to think of these very disadvantaged young people who had literally been to hell and back and to find a way to give them a second chance in life … He cares so much about these young people.”
