“We still haven’t worked out what the right balance is for online time,” he admitted. “It’s quite difficult, it’s still a very fluid dynamic.

“We’re going to have that discussion with our family, how on earth are we going to police and have family time when the phones are all put down and you’re offline?

“Because we’re all so connected now that we’ve got to say, ‘right, for instance, we’re eating now’.”

The 36-year-old royal added: “This generation are going to be the first generation to grow up fully immersed in mobile phones, social media, lots of stuff.

“And yet our generation, the older generation, the parent generation, we’re completely left at, ‘how do we deal with this? Where do we go to? Where do you learn about how to look after your children’s digital world?’”

Meanwhile, the heir to the British throne recently opened up about the adjustments he’s made since becoming a dad.

“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 admitted on chat show Talk Vietnam in 2016.

“I adore my children very much and I’ve learnt a lot about myself and about family just from having my own children,” he added.

“George is a right little rascal sometimes, he keeps me on my toes but he’s a sweet boy. And Charlotte, bearing in mind I haven’t had a sister so having a daughter is a very different dynamic.

“So, I’m learning about having a daughter, having a girl in the family.”

This parenting gig is tough, and it can get to any of us at any time. Even if you’re a prince. Enjoy your sleep, Will. Like Kate, we’re jealous of you too!
