Prince William has opened up about the challenges of dealing with his children. The father of three revealed that even though he is a royal, he is still a normal parent who struggles to get his kids finish their dinner.
The members of the royal family are not exempted from the struggles of raising children. While they may look like they live perfect lives, royal parents Prince William and Kate Middleton have their share of parenting challenges, too.
The Duke of Cambridge revealed on Wednesday that their dinnertime scenario depends a lot on what is on the menu. The 37-year-old father shared details of their family life during his video call with PEEK Project, a charity known to provide hundreds of meals each day to families who have been greatly affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
Community chef Charlie Farally told William how the charitable institution has greatly helped parents at this time.
"You'll know yourself - the hardest time is dinnertime," Farrelly said.
To which Prince William laughed in agreement. "It depends on what's on the table though Charlie, isn't it? And that's the thing. If parents put something on that children's love, dinnertime goes on very well."
Prince William added, "but if you put something on the table they don't want to do, that's another ball game."
