Prince William talks about being father, baby George's future

Almost a month after the birth of his son Prince George by Duchess Catherine, Prince William talks to CNN about his role as a father and his plans about baby George.

Prince William admits that he feels surprised and amazed by parenthood. He adds, “The last few weeks for me have been a very different emotional experience, something I never thought I would feel myself. And I find, again it's only been a short period, but a lot of things affect me differently now.”

Prince George of Cambridge is third in line to the British throne and future king. He was born on July 22, 2013 and is the first child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. In his first interview after the birth of his son, proud father Prince William says “[George] is a bit of a rascal.” “He either reminds me of my brother or me when I was younger, I'm not sure, but he's doing very well at the moment.”

Like all new fathers, Prince William is yearning to get some rest.  “He’s growing quickly … but he’s a little fighter – he wriggles around quite a lot and he doesn’t want to go to sleep that much.” He admits that he's looking forward to going back to his job as a Royal Air Force search-and-rescue pilot in order to catch up on some much-needed sleep. But he quickly adds “I'm just hoping the first few shifts I go back I don't have any night jobs.”

He says that Catherine has done a fantastic job, and has been handling the night duties with baby George. But the prince hasn’t been immune to nappy changes. “I did the first nappy, it’s a badge of honor,” he says. He adds cheerily “I wasn't allowed to get away with that. I had every midwife staring at me, saying: ‘You do it, you do it.’”

Prince William happily recalls the first time he and Catherine emerged from the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London to show the world their new bundle of joy. He confesses to feeling shocked at the reception they received and the fact that he was now a father, “we were happy to show him off to whoever wanted to see him … as any new parent knows, you're only too happy to show off your new child and, you know, proclaim that he is the best looking or the best everything.” He happily adds, “it's nice that people want to see George — I'm just glad he wasn't screaming his head off the whole way through.”

When asked about his skill in securing his son’s car seat, which he incredibly managed successfully at the first try, the prince confesses that “it wasn't my first time.” The careful Prince William says “I know there's been some speculation about that. I had to practice, I really did — I was terrified it was going to fall off or the door wasn't going to close properly.”

People have taken note of the prince’s choice of driving his family off from the hospital on his own, and have perceived it as his way of introducing modernity into the monarchy. But he responds that he was only doing things his way. For the prince, driving his family was important, something he can’t let the system take over and do for him. He explains “I am as independent as I want to be, same as Catherine and Harry. We've all grown up differently to other generations and I very much feel that if I can do it myself, I want to do it myself.”

For Prince William, being a new father means leaving behind a few things. He says he will miss living in the Welsh island of Anglesey when his tour as a RAF pilot ends next month. He also expects changing his focus, saying “for me, Catherine and now little George are my priorities — and Lupo.” Lupo is the couple’s pet Cocker Spaniel, who the prince says is coping all right. He adds  that “he's been slobbering around the house a bit, so he's perfectly happy.”

Prince William says during the interview that he wishes baby George will see the Africa he saw as a boy and a young man. One of the prince’s passions is saving endangered species. He wishes the passion he felt from his father Prince Charles will also be experienced by baby George. He jokes of getting toy elephants and rhinos, whispering sweet nothings and covering baby George’s room with bushes, to “make him grow up as if he's in the bush.”

But he admits Africa isn’t an immediate concern. Instead, he laughingly wishes that his only legacy to baby George at the moment is “to sleep more and maybe not have to change his nappy so many times.”
