Prince William Finds Moment of Respite

Prince William made his first public appearance today since the birth of his son, Prince George. He played in the annual Audi Polo Challenge at Coworth Park, Ascot, Berkshire, with his brother, Prince Harry.

Prince William revealed that he wasn’t too focused on the game, despite scoring the winning goal for his team – “I was in baby mode out there, thinking about nappies, I wasn’t really in the zone,” and added that it was, “good to get out of the house” for the afternoon. Living with his in-laws and his newborn son, one can imagine that an afternoon off was much needed.

The second in line to the throne is currently on paternity leave but is expected to return to work sometime next week. An announcement on his future plans- whether he plans to stay in the Royal Air Force or take on more royal duties- is expected within the next few months.
