  • The Duke of Cambridge described his 'sleepless nights' since the arrival of his son and shared the news he'll visit Australia next year

    Prince William revealed what life is like with his newborn son, Prince George, as he attended the Anglesey County Show this afternoon.

    Talking to excited well-wishers at the agricultural event, his first official event since becoming a first-time father, the Duke of Cambridge said: ‘He’s lovely. There’s been just a few sleepless nights but he’s sleeping much better now.’ Aww.

    If that wasn’t exciting enough, Prince William also revealed that he and Kate Middleton plan to take their newborn son to Australia next year, in what will be Prince George’s first ever trip abroad.

    The Duke of Cambridge will be following in the footsteps of his late mum Princess Diana, who took Prince William on a tour of the country when he was just nine months old.

    After chatting to an elderly couple who congratulated the Prince on the arrival of his three-week-old son, he asked them where they were visiting from. When they responded ‘Adelaide’, Prince William said: ‘We hope to go there next year.’

    The event – an annual agricultural show on the island – saw Prince William take part in cattle judging and falconry displays. It was an opportunity for the royal to say goodbye to the North Wales island before he returns to London this month to join the Duchess of Cambridge and their son at Kensington Palace. We can’t wait to see more pics of ‘lovely’ Prince George…
