British Royal Family

Prince William makes the most relatable confession about parenting

And he sounds like any other sleep-deprived parent!

By Candice Mehta-Culjak
Prince William has opened up about the realities of parenthood, revealing that even as a member of the royal family sleep-deprivation is A Thing.
The proud dad to Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two, made the hilarious confession as he chatted with fellow attendees at the Wales v Australia rugby game in Cardiff on Saturday.
"I do need toothpicks to keep my eyes open because of the kids," he said before launching into a discussion about the match.
Of course, the royal household is about to become a whole lot more hectic.
William and his wife, Duchess Catherine, are currently expecting their third little prince or princess in April 2018.
The beloved couple have not yet confirmed the baby's exact due date, however there's a chance the new royal addition could share their birthday with their great-granny the Queen, who will celebrate her 92nd on 21 April.
Or, if the royal bub were to arrive later in the month, their grand entrance could coincide with the Duke and Duchess's seventh wedding anniversary on 29 April.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte will soon welcome another member into the fold!

Prince William has previously opened up about the impending arrival.
The royal recently dropped by a National Mental Health and Policing Conference in Oxford, England to give the keynote address. There, he spoke about the happy news while also providing a health update on his wife of six years as she continues to suffer from extreme morning sickness or 'hyperemesis gravidarum' -- the same nasty condition she battled while pregnant with their two previous children.
"It's very good news," he said.
"We need Catherine to get over this first bit and then we can start celebrating. It's always a bit anxious to start with, but she's well."
