Prince William took his first well earned break from new Dad duties to play in a charity polo match ahead of another imminent trip – back to the RAF.
The Duke of Cambridge’s two-week paternity leave ends today, which means he’ll have to tear himself away from baby George and Kate Middleton as he restarts his RAF search and rescue job.
It’s bound to be a wrench for new mum Kate. Wills took most of July off work, using annual leave ahead of the birth so he could stay with his wife in the run-up to their son’s arrival on July 22.
And although Kate will continue to reside with the newborn future King at her parents’ home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, her separation from William, luckily, won’t be for long.
The prince is expected to quit his job at RAF Valley on Anglesey next month. Then he and Kate will move into their official Royal home Apartment 1A in Kensington Palace once renovations are complete. An announcement about what his next military role will be is expected soon.
This weekend at his first public outing since Prince George’s birth at the Audi Polo Challenge in Ascot, William admitted it was ‘good to get out of the house’ for an afternoon. And asked about George, he said: ‘He likes to move around a lot, he wriggles a lot, he keeps on our toes.’
Now, that is royally cute!
