Prince William Jokes He Has His Hands Full With Prince George

He's getting ready for the arrival of baby number two and the Duke of Cambridge hinted that Prince George already keeps him busy enough as he chatted to guests at a gala dinner in London

He hasn’t accompanied his parents on any of their royal duties recently, but at 15 months old we hazard a guess that Prince George is your average toddler – no doubt toddling around and keeping his parents (and nanny) on their toes.

And Prince William came up with a brilliant solution to keep track of his son while attending an event at the Imperial War Museum.

When handed a bag of Christmas bells by a child at the event, Wills reportedly joked that he knew ‘just what to do’ with them.

‘I’ll probably put them in [George’s] pocket, we’ll know where he is then,’ said the Duke.

Prince George was last seen celebrating his first birthday in July. To mark the occasion, Kensington Palace released a set of official photographs showing George and his parents enjoying a butterfly exhibition at the Natural History Museum.

It’s not known when the young royal will next be seen but we suspect with baby number two on the way, Kate and Wills have a lot on their plate.
