How totally, refreshingly normal! Prince William debuted his son in front of the world at an international press conference outside St. Mary’s Hospital — and then packed up his family and drove them home all on his own.
Prince William is already shaping up to be a hands-on dad to his and Kate Middleton‘s baby boy! The beaming papa packed up his son in “the royal carseat” all on his own! This is a major challenge for all first-time dads who struggle with those tricky contraptions — but Will had to pack up the car while the world was watching!
Prince William & Kate Middleton Leave Hospital: Packs Up Family In The Car
After the debut of the royal baby on the steps of St. Mary’s Hospital on July 23 — just one day after Kate gave birth! — Prince William carried his baby boy out of the hospital in a carseat, packed his family to take them back to their palace. Totally normal, right?
The new dad didn’t even let the infamously deceptively simple car seat get the best of him — he did a great job, swiftly placing the carrier into the car as photographers captured every moment. The royal baby carrier is a Britax Baby Safe Car Seat, which retails for about $250.
The royal family has expressed that they want to live as normal a life as possible — and small details like this make them seem so much more down to earth, even when they are clearly living in a royal world.
Prince William Drives Family Home To Kensington Palace
After Prince William packed up his son in his car seat, he set up the baby in the back seat of the car. Glowing mama Kate sat in the back seat with the baby for the short ride home, which is pretty typical for the nerve-wrecking first ride home. Will drove the car himself, with a standard bodyguard up at the front seat with him.
This is certainly not the first time that Will has driven his family around, but it was a very endearing moment to share with his young family after a dauting press conference. Prince William also drove Kate to the hospital himself when she went into labor in the early morning on June 22.
What do YOU think, HollyMoms? Is it totally refreshing that Prince William drove his family home himself?
