  • Prince William and Kate Middleton have always been very open about family life behind the scenes. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis – and are always giving royal fans updates about their young ones.

    William revealed that George’s favourite Disney film is The Lion King (relatable), and Kate shared a sweet story about Louis when he started walking. They’ve even revealed Charlotte’s adorable nickname.

    Last month, people were speculating that Kate could be pregnant again because the couple took a doctor on a royal tour with them to Pakistan, which is something they’ve not been known to do previously. While the Queen regularly takes a medical professional with her when she travels, the Cambridges don’t.

    However, William may have just quashed those rumours.

    At a fundraising campaign dinner for London’s Air Ambulance Charity, William spoke to Eric Clapton and admitted that having three children means he takes a nap whenever he can.

    The musician reportedly asked the royal what he does in his spare time, to which William replied: ‘With the children it’s quite hard to get the time off.

    ‘Any free time I do get I sleep!’

    It isn’t the first time that William has spoken about his sleepless nights. When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their first child, baby Archie Harrison, earlier this year, he told reporters: ‘I’m very pleased and glad to welcome my brother to the sleep deprivation society that is parenting.’

    Oh, William!
