Prince William’s designated two-week paternity leave has come to an end, and so it’s back to work for the young father, leaving his wife and new mother Kate Middleton looking after their first born child, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge.
But Kate will have lots of help at hand, as she continues to stay with mum Carole and dad Michael Middleton at their family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.
William, however won’t be gone for long, as he is expected to announce his resignation from his role at RAF Valley on Anglesy next month. It’s likely that the doting dad will take on a new position, as a member of the Household Cavalry's elite Mounted Regiment, with more regular hours that will allow him to be a hands-on father closer to home.
Speaking at the Audi Polo Challenge this weekend, his first public appearance since the birth of his son, it was clear Prince William only had one thing on his mind. “I was in baby mode out there, thinking about nappies, I wasn’t really in the zone. I’ve got to pick some (nappies) up on my way home. I’ve got to make sure I’m not too late back.”
In the meantime, it is expected that the proud father will helicopter in to the Middleton’s home when he’s not working to spend time with Kate and baby George.
