Prince William Gets Real About Traveling With Small Children

They may be royalty, but when it comes to the pains of traveling with children, not even Prince William and Kate Middleton can escape jet lag. More specifically, the perils of jet lag when small children are involved.

It's been just about a week since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge returned from their first sojourn as a family of four, and it turns out that re-entry has not been flawless for the royal tots.

We had plenty of opportunity to see Prince George and Princess Charlotte be adorable in Canada (including Char's first public statement -- "pop pop," to a bunch of balloons), but all that travel seems to have taken its toll.

Prince William attended the annual gala for 100 Women in Hedge Funds on Monday evening, and shared with CEO Amanda Pullinger that his kids "were on best behavior [during the trip], so it was good." Then he added, "The jet lag has been a bit interesting since we got back."

Poor little chaps -- we can't blame them at all! Any parent can relate to time changes screwing up kids' nap and bedtime schedules, not to mention the fatigue of traveling halfway around the world. We sort of want to have our own meltdown just thinking about it.

Will barely paused after the eight-day trip, however, before attending the gala, which was supporting the youth charity SkillForce this year. He addressed the group of about 200 guests, saying that he's hoping to help young people with the "enormous" pressures put on them nowadays. "Much more than even when I was at school," he said.

That's what we love about Will so much -- he's always ready to lend a hand, whether it be with helping his kids get back on a sleep schedule, or encouraging school kids to keep on keeping on. Will's got it covered.
