Kate Middleton has revealed her husband, Prince William‘s surprising reaction to becoming a father.

After welcoming their first child, Prince George on July 22, 2013, Kate says Wills expressed concerns about fatherhood.


In an interview with Giovanna Fletcher, on her podcast Happy Mum, Happy Baby, Kate admitted, ‘It wasn’t that quiet in our household.’ 

“William was like ‘Oh my gosh is this what parenting is going to be like?'”

But the now-mother-of-three went on to say it didn’t take the future King of England long to get into the parenthood groove.

“It took us a bit of time to get ourselves settled and going again but that’s the beauty, I suppose of having a new-born baby.

“You are pulled to your toughest and most unknown places that you hadn’t necessarily even thought about before.”

The 38-year-old also opened up about how her Middleton upbringing influences how she raises George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

“I had a very happy childhood. It was great fun – I’m very lucky, I’ve come from a very strong family – my parents were hugely dedicated to us – my siblings,” she explained.

“I really appreciate now as a parent how much they sacrificed for us.

“They would come to every sports match – I was very keen on sport – they came to every sports match, they’d be the ones on the side-line shouting, and we’d always have our family holidays together. 

“But I think the things that really resonate with me most are the simple things and actually I see that now with my own children, life now is so busy, so distracting and actually sometimes the simple things like watching a fire on a really rainy day provides such enjoyment.

“I remember that from my childhood – doing the simple things, going for a walk together, and that’s really what I try and do with my children as well because it totally strips away all the complications, all the pressures.”
