Prince William's Dad Confession About Princess Charlotte Is All Too Relatable

When it comes to getting the kids ready -- Princess Charlotte, in particular -- Prince William is, admittedly, of little use. While visiting a park in Blackpool with Kate Middleton on Wednesday, William got to talking with members of the local group Dads 4 Life. During a conversation with one of the organization's members, William joked about doing Charlotte's hair. Or, more apropos, not doing Charlotte's hair. 

  • When the fellow dad revealed to William that he learned to style his daughter’s hair by watching YouTube tutorials, the royal empathized.

    “Never try to do a ponytail! Nightmare,” William quickly joked.

    Kate then quickly jumped in, asking the duke: "Have you tried to do a plait [braid]? It’s the weaving ... really hard."

  • A braid? Yeah, no. Naturally, William had a cheeky response to that. 


    “I can do [Princess Charlotte’s] ponytail, but that’s about it as I don’t have enough hair to practice on," he quipped.

    Oh, Wills. Always with the quick comebacks!

  • Ironically, William's remarks come just a week after the Duchess of Cambridge showcased her hair skills in Northern Ireland. 

    While visiting Braid Arts Centre, a CineMagic charity in Ballymena, Northern Ireland, Kate worked with two other young girls to braid another girl's hair.  

    "The Duchess of Cambridge joins a @Cinemagic make-up demonstration and storyboard masterclass demonstration with children from Malvern Primary School,” Kensington Palace wrote alongside a video posted to Twitter.

  • Is there anything you can't do, Kate?

  • Although Prince William may refer to doing his daughter's hair as a "nightmare," let's be honest, it's highly unlikely such a task falls on him regularly.

    Not only is Kate obviously a braiding whiz, but William tends to be with Prince George, which, frankly, doesn't seem like it's without its pitfalls. George is adorable but, according to William and Kate, can be a handful!

    If it ain't broke, guys, don't fix it! Though, not going to lie, it would be pretty adorable to watch Wills trying to do Charlotte's hair.
