Prince William looked visibly tired as he attended the Anzac Day service just two days after the birth of his newborn son.
The Duke of Cambridge welcomed his third child with Kate Middleton to the world on Monday.
The prince was out and about on official royal duties just two days after the birth of his son at an Anzac Day service in Westminster Abbey, but once inside the new dad’s tiredness appeared to show and videos and pictures have since emerged that seem to show him snoozing.
Fellow new parents have taken to Twitter to show their support for Prince William, just as they praised the Duchess of Cambridge for leaving the hospital so quickly and in heels!
One person wrote: ‘Tbh he should’ve been allowed to take a pass on this he is supposed to be on paternity leave and everyone would’ve understood. Prince Harry was there that was enough’.
‘Let the man sleep! A newborn and 2 more little ones and you take him to a quiet service? How much can this man take!’, said another sympathetic Twitter user.
Another wrote: ‘Aww bless him his shattered … go home get some sleep ..🍵’.
A third defended William and said: ‘All you lot sneering. Give him a break. Bet none of you’d go back to work the day after your son was born. Bet you’d take every second paternal paid leave. He’s straight back on duty. Nanny = Baby sitter. Same thing, you’ve all had them.. Seriously..’.
For all new parents welcoming a child to the world is often an exhilarating yet exhausting experience and with Prince George and Princess Charlotte to look after as well, it is no wonder he tried to catch a few moments of peace.
