Princess Charlotte Is a Royal Pain When It Comes to Bedtime

It seems as though little Princess Charlotte isn't giving her parents, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, any special treatment! The newest little royal has apparently been keeping her mum and dad up all hours of the night, while her big brother Prince George keeps them on their toes by always being on the move.


Prince William met with members of the England women's soccer team, the Lionesses, this week, and confessed what life has been like since Charlotte joined the family on May 2.

Team captain Steph Houghton told PEOPLE magazine, "All the girls were asking how Princess Charlotte is and Prince George and whether they keep him up all night ... He was saying he's obviously really enjoying being a father and Princess Charlotte is actually keeping him up -- and probably why his eyes are looking a little bit tired."

The 27-year-old, who plays center half, said that she hopes Prince George will be playing soccer himself someday. "Hopefully," she said. "[Prince William] was saying he never stops moving!"

Another player Jill Scott added, "He said he'd had a few sleepless nights. The baby will be up and George is running around now isn't he? It reflects that he does a normal life away from his duty as prince."

The team appreciated new dad's appearance and encouragement very much. "It means an awful lot that Prince William's come down to support us ahead of a massive tournament for ourselves," said Houghton. "He was just telling us to enjoy being over here and enjoy every single moment and do everyone proud."

"He was very relaxed," added Scott. "He is a normal guy who wants to have normal conversations. He spoke to us about Canada and said he'd been there a few times. We were trying to get some places to go in our downtime."

I think it's so awesome that Kate and Will are raising their children as normally as possible, even though they happen to be the most famous babies on the planet. Of course they could employ someone to get up with Charlotte in the night -- but they wouldn't miss it for all the sleep in the world.

Are you surprised that Prince William gets up with baby Charlotte?
