Prince William shares his ‘highs and lows’ of being a parent

Prince William

Becoming a father for the first time is no easy feat, and even Prince William struggled with adapting to fatherhood.

Fatherhood has admittedly made Prince William more “emotional.

“There’s wonderful highs and wonderful lows. It’s been quite a change for me personally,” William said. “I’m very lucky in the support I have from Catherine, she’s an amazing mother and a fantastic wife. “But 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 added. “I adore my children very much and I’ve learnt a lot about myself and about family just from having my own children.”

It’s not the first time the Duke has spoken about how much of an adjustment he felt when becoming a father and how much he relied on his wife during those times, having previously confessed he doesn’t know how he will “cope” having three children.

And since becoming a father, he feels much more affected by things that rarely bothered him before.

Speaking in a documentary back in 2016, he admitted, “I’m a lot more emotional than I used to be. 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.”

The couple is huge advocates for mental health and Kate herself has previously opened up about her own insecurities after becoming a mother, having struggled with pregnancy in such a huge way as a result of Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

Thankfully the couple works together as a team in order to give their children the happiest life possible.

“Me and Catherine particularly, we support each other and we go through those moments together and we kind of evolve and learn together… I can completely relate to what you’re saying about children coming along, it’s one of the most amazing moments of life but it’s also one of the scariest, the future King revealed.
