Prince William has revealed the reason why wife Catherine is 'jealous' of him, and we bet all parents can relate to the reason why...

The dad-of-three is currently away on a royal trip to Namibia, and has been forced to leave behind his wife Catherine and his three little ones – five-year-old George, three-year-old Charlotte and five-month-old Louis – to visit the country on official royal duties.

But turns out there’s something that he’s really looking forward to during his solo trip, which has also left Catherine ‘immensely jealous’.

The couple welcomed their third child in April, and five months in we bet they’re still struggling to get a decent amount of sleep. So it comes as no surprise that William is actually excited to be away from home so he can get some good quality shut-eye!

During a speech at one of the events he attended, he said, “I’m delighted to be visiting Namibia for the first time. I’m only sorry that my wife Catherine is not able to join me.

“She is immensely jealous. Particularly as I’m looking forward to a few good uninterrupted nights sleep this week away from my wonderful children.”

The busy royal is probably in need of those few good nights of sleep, as back in April he was spotted snoozing at the Anzac Day service, just two days after his son’s birth. His sneaky snooze made headlines worldwide and became one of his most relatable dad moments.

We bet Catherine would also appreciate a night off, as she’s due to return to work very soon. Announcing that her first royal engagement after welcoming Prince Louis will be next week, Kensington Palace tweeted: ‘The Duchess of Cambridge will visit the @SCTrust Forest School and Wildlife Garden at Paddington Recreation Ground on Tuesday 2nd October.’

While she took six months maternity leave, the mum still made appearances at high profile royal events during her break. She attended Meghan and Harry’s wedding in May, where she looked after Prince George and Princess Charlotte who were a pageboy and bridesmaid, and also attended the Trooping the Colour in June.
