New parents can definitely identify with sleep-deprived Prince William.
It seems the dad of three could use a little more shut-eye after cameras caught him seemingly struggle to keep his eyes open during the annual Anzac Day Service Of Commemoration and Thanksgiving. The service, held at Westminster Abbey, honoured Australia and New Zealand’s fallen at the Battle of Villers-Bretonneux. The event took place just days after Will and wife Kate Middleton welcomed a son on April 23.
Sitting next to soon-to-be sister-in-law Meghan Markle and his brother Prince Harry, the 35-year-old royal dad appears to drift off for a few moments before blinking himself awake during the service.
Unaware of his brother’s sleepy state, Harry and Markle seem to only have eyes for each other in photos capturing the ceremony.
Prince William can hopefully look forward to a few more hours of sleep now that his mother-in-law, Carole Middleton, is at the couple’s home at Kensington Palace to help the family of five out. Earlier this week, she was spotted picking up Prince George from school.
Meanwhile, the latest royal family member has yet to meet his grandfather, Prince Charles. Charles is currently in France for Anzac Day and is expected to meet his grandson upon his return.
Kensington Palace has not yet released the name of the littlest prince, though Prince William joked with reporters on Wednesday saying “Jerry” is a “strong name.”
