prince william kate middleton prince georgePrince William seems to have such a kind heart, taking on charity work like his late mother and truly doing so much for so many. And when it comes to his life's greatest work -- being a father -- we've also discovered how much of a doting dad he is. Prince Will shows it in ways great and small -- from opening up about how much fatherhood has changed him to that look in his eye when he is with his beautiful family.

We all love Prince William; as the oldest son and future heir to the English royal throne, he is many things we respect: loyal, kind, and good-hearted with a sense of humor. And as a father, he shows exactly the same qualities that make him a wonderful future leader. We think Kate is lucky to have him (and not just for his royal attributes!), as he has shown himself to be great dad. In fact, we found these photos of the times that William showed great dad behavior. From the day that William presented baby George to the world to the sweet daddy-and-me moments he shares, we couldn't help but notice that this prince is a prince of a dad!

    This sweet royal family was just a trio here -- I love that they just hang out in the outdoors in fancy clothing. But I really love that dad Will isn't afraid to just get down and crawl with his son.


  • It's all in the hold.

    Prince William is often seen carrying Prince George like this. The little prince is well secured by his loving pop and gets to meet and greet the world just like his mum and dad.

    The royals aren't exactly affectionate in front of cameras, but as we can see, this sweet smooch given to Prince George is so full of love.

    While I don't love the sight of Prince George in tears, I do love how his dad is holding his hand, leaning in close, and seemingly pointing to something in an attempt to get George smiling again.

    Prince William is the kind of parent who makes sure he gets down low to hear whatever his child is saying -- as we see here. Moments later, Will is carrying his son, who was probably tired of walking. He's quite the dad!

  • With adoration.

    While we don't have many photos of Will and his daughter Charlotte together quite yet, there is this sweet moment where he is looking on adoringly at his little princess.
