Kate and William

Prince William experiences the same feelings a lot of fathers do when they welcome a child.

During a recent royal engagement, The Duchess Of Cambridge revealed some of the struggles that her husband Prince William went through as a new father.

At the event she discussed the role of fatherhood and the feeling some dad's get of being a bit of a third wheel when mothers are bonding with their children in ways they can't such as breastfeeding.

During a discussion with a single dad called Billy from Chatham she explained some of William's struggles after her births. 

He told The Mirror: “She was saying William was sort of similar, I just wanted to let her know how Family Action have been there for me and I think they need more support."

A volunteer for Hornsey Road Children's Centre which is where the visit took place spoke about a discussion she had with Kate about dads feeling left out and said: “I think it’s so important because dad’s sometimes get left out in the mix after the birth of a baby and they sometimes get sidelined.

“She seems genuinely very interested.”

Prince George

Prince William has always been a doting dad to both his children and it was he who took Prince George to his very first day of school at the prestigious Thomas's School Battersea.
