Prince William has disclosed that fatherhood has made him "a lot more emotional" and value how precious life life is.
The 33-year-old prince noted that world events, and "the idea of not being around to see your children grow up", affected him much more since the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte,
"The smallest things" now made him well up, he said in an ITV documentary about his father's Prince's Trust charity.
Speaking to presenters Ant and Dec - Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly - alongside his brother Prince Harry, the Duke of Cambridge said: "I'm a lot more emotional than I used to be, weirdly.
"I never used to get too wound up or worried about things. But now the smallest little things, you well up a little more, you get affected by the sort of things that happen around the world or whatever a lot more, I think, as a father.
"Just because you realise how precious life is and it puts it all in perspective. The idea of not being around to see your children grow up and stuff like that."
Prince Charles expressed optimism that his sons would take over the trust one day.
