  • The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are proud parents to three children, but there was a big difference between eldest son Prince George and the rest of his siblings.

    After receiving his OBE from Prince William, Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas told PA that the Prince had asked about life with his three-week old son, who he recently welcomed with wife Sarah Elen Thomas.

    Geraint said, “He asked how the sleepless nights were going. He said their first one took a while for his sleep to kick in. You don’t really know what to expect, but to chat to him about the rugby and my baby was surreal.”

    So it seems that Prince George was the most restless of the three Cambridge children, although Prince William has previously joked about sleep deprivation after the birth of his nephew Archie earlier this year – so we can imagine the royal parents have been through it to some extent throughout all of their children’s early days.

    Speaking about the new arrival at the time, Prince William had said, “I’m very pleased and glad to welcome my own brother into the sleep deprivation society that is parenting.”

    Prince George made his first public appearance back in 2013, when he was just a few weeks old, at the Anglesey Show in North Wales.

    Speaking about his newborn son, Prince William said at the time, “The new addition, he’s doing all right. I’m getting my head down during the day. He is lovely. There have been a few sleepless nights but he’s sleeping much better now.”

    The Cambridges have both joked about sleepless nights, but this is the first time Prince George has been singled out suggesting he may have been the most difficult!
