Prince William talks about how fatherhood has changed him

Prince William talked with English television presenters Declan Donnelly and Anthony McPartlin, known as Ant & Dec, during the documentary When Ant and Dec Met The Prince: 40 Years of the Prince’s Trust, a movie focusing on the Prince’s Trust, a charity set up by Prince Charles.

“I’m a lot more emotional than I used to be, weirdly,” the prince, 33, told McPartlin and Donnelly [via BBC]. “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.”

Kate Middleton’s husband added, “Just because you realize 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.”

In the same interview, Prince Charles, 67, talked about his charity and family.

The doting grandpa added that he is thankful for his grandchildren who will “look after me when I’m tottering about”.

In October, the Duke opened up about Charlotte, 8 months, and George, 2, while visiting St. John’s College at Cambridge University, where he opened a new archive center.

“He said George is very lively and Charlotte is very lady-like. He said they were both delightful of course,” said the Master of St John’s College, Professor Christopher Dobson, who talked with the royal father-of-two.

In another interview with Sky News from July, Prince William boasted about his “missus,” the Duchess of Cambridge, saying that his wife “has been doing an amazing job as a mother,” and added that he is “very proud of her.”

During the interview the royal called his daughter a “little joy of heaven,” and talked about how fatherhood is about “more responsibility, looking after two little ones, especially when George is around. He’s a little monkey.”
