Prince William on raising two kids: "Within our sort of family unit, we are a normal family."

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, sat down with BBC for a short interview on the eve of the Queen's 90th birthday.


The Royal Family is celebrating a milestone as the Queen turns 90, on April 21, 2016.

On the eve of Queen Elizabeth II's birthday, the BBC sat down with her grandson Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, who spoke about how he keeps things "normal" for his wife Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, and his two children Prince George of Cambridge, 2 , and Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, 11 months.

The future king revealed, "As far as they're concerned, within our sort of family unit, we are a normal family.

"I love my children the same way any father does, and I hope George loves me the same way a son does to his father, so we are very normal in that sense."

Family has become one of his top priorities.

"I'm concentrating very much on my role as a father. I'm a new father, and I take my duties and my responsibilities to my family very seriously.

"And I want to bring my children up as good people with the idea of service and duty to others as very important."

Although his commitment to his family has been admirable to many, some British press had pointed out that he seems to lack the same dedication to his royal duties.

"To be honest, I'm going to get plenty of criticisms in my lifetime, and it's something that I don't completely ignore, but it's not something I take completely to heart."

He underlined, "I take duty very seriously. I take my responsibilities very seriously.

"But it's about finding your own way at the right time, and if you're not careful, duty can sort of weigh you down for lots at a very early age, and I think gotta develop into the duty rule."

RAISING PRINCE GEORGE The royal family released a series of family portraits for the commemorative stamps celebrating the Queen's birthday.

This debuted Prince George's first royal stamp.

In the same interview, the BBC asked if Prince William if his two-year-old son is already aware of their unique position in the world.

The Duke preferred to let it occur naturally, "There'll be a time and a place to bring George up and understand how we fits in into the world.

"But right now, it's just a case of keeping a secure, stable environment around him, and show him much love as I can as a father."
