Yesterday, Prince William joined Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at a service of remembrance at Westminster Abbey. Earlier that morning, Harry and Meghan took part in a pre-dawn ceremony to commemorate the national day, which honors Australians and New Zealanders who fought for their countries.
William, too, was likely up before the birds given that he became a father of three on Monday. While the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and the new little Prince (whose name is expected to be announced any day now) were back at Kensington Palace, William did his best to remain alert and attentive during the service.
Footage, however, caught William dozing off in the front row as the Very Reverend Dr John Hall spoke from the abbey's pulpit. The struggle was so real that it became a viral hit.
Every parent who caught that footage nodded in solidarity, knowing full well the lack of sleep William was running on.
Still, William did his best to appear engaged and cheery while talking to members of the clergy and other officials about his son.
According to royal reporter Richard Palmer, the Duke told one person that "Sleeping’s going reasonably well so far. So he’s behaving himself, which is good.”
PS - expect the royal baby's name to be announced today (my money's on Arthur). If the palace doesn't do it today, then the press team is really dragging its feet.
