Since becoming a father to two, Prince William only has one thing on his Christmas list this year-sleep.
For any family with children, Christmas is an exciting time of year and the royals are no exception. Two year old Prince George, like any toddler will be “bouncing around like a rabbit” this Christmas, the Duke of Cambridge told The Big Issue. “If I get any sleep on Christmas
Eve, it’ll be good. It’s a very different experience at Christmas, having a family of your own.”
The young couple have opted to spend the festive period at home this year as their first Christmas as a family of four, but in an interview the new father explained how he is ready for all of the difficulties that may come with having two excitable children.
“So that will be two children, one who suddenly appreciates Christmas, which could be quite challenging,” he said. “But I’m looking forward to it. We’ll go to church as a family on Christmas Day, as we always do, and then we’ll watch George try to tackle his presents as he tries to unwrap them.”
The interview was with trainee journalist Sophia Kichou who met the prince four years ago through a homeless charity, Centerpoint. The Duke, who spends a lot of time working for the charity, promised Ms Kichou an interview when she realised her dream to be a journalist.
When asked for his Christmas wish, he said: “Well, let me see… I would love everybody at Centrepoint, all the young people, to have a happy Christmas and to be safe and secure somewhere.
“And to have some love in their lives. I know that sounds quite naïve and romantic, but that would be the thing I’d ask for.”
The full interview is available in The Big Issue today, Monday 7th December.
