Whether you’re royalty or not, it seems every parent misses the same thing from their pre-baby years.
This week, Prince William made a relatable comment about parenting during his tour of Africa, adding that his wife Kate Middleton was “immensely jealous”.
Find out what he’s talking about below…
What’s making Kate Middleton jealous?
Prince William, who was speaking at a British High Commissioner’s reception in the capital city of Windhoek in Namibia, revealed his wife was envious of his trip.
“Particularly as I’m looking forward to a few good, uninterrupted sleeps this week, away from my wonderful children,” the 36-year-old royal joked, and his comments were met with a few chuckles from the audience.

It sounds like the royal couple also have their fair share of sleepless nights!

Prince William’s adjustment to parenthood
It’s not the first time the Duke of Cambridge, who is dad to Prince George, five, Princess Charlotte, three and five-month-old Prince Louis, has opened up about the challenges of parenthood.
“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!
