Why Father's Day Is Extra Special for Royal Dad Prince William This Year
It is a double celebration for Prince William!
The royal father of Prince George (6), Princess Charlotte (5) and Prince Louis (2) will have a special Father's Day this year, as Sunday also marks Williams' 38th birthday. As in previous years, Prince William will spend the vacation privately with his family.
Like families around the world, the Cambridges have spent a lot of extra time together due to the coronavirus pandemic. They have been quarantined in their Norfolk country house, Note Hall, since March, although William left for his first personal royal engagement earlier this week to thank the ambulance workers for their efforts over the past few months.

Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton gave some insight into their lives during the ban during virtual interviews and engagements, including the associated challenges of homeschooling.
"Homeschooling is fun, isn't it?" William joked with other parents during a zoom call that appeared in the BBC documentary Football, Prince William, and Mental Health. "You're starting to worry about how little you remember from school when you can't answer the math questions at home."

William also volunteered with Prince George and Princess Charlotte during the pandemic and brought food to older residents near their country house in April. They published a photo of the royal father, who was carrying an umbrella with his two oldest children when they made the deliveries.

In the documentary Football, Prince William and Our Mental Health, the prince said that having his three children was his "greatest life-changing moment".
Former soccer player Marvin Sordell, who suffered from depression and grew up without a father, told the king that it was the hardest time in my life to become a father. I found it really difficult. I grew up without my father ... I really had to struggle with my feelings at the time. "
"Having children is the biggest life-changing moment, it really is," said William. "I think if you've been through something traumatic in life and, as you say, your father is not there, my mother dies when I was younger, the emotions come back by leaps and bounds."

When Sordell admitted that he "found it really difficult" when he became a father, the prince said: "Me and Catherine, in particular, we support each other and we go through these moments together and we develop and learn together."
"I can fully relate to what you say about accompanying children - it is one of the most amazing moments in life, but it is also one of the scariest."
