LONDON Prince William has opened up about struggling to adjust to parenthood and family life.

In an TV interview on the Vietnamese talk show Talk Vietnam, the future king said that becoming a father had changed his life dramatically.

“As the other parents in the room will testify, there are wonderful highs and wonderful lows. No, it’s been quite a change for me personally,” Prince William said.

Prince William is in Vietnam to take part in an international conference on the illegal wildlife trade.

William said he’s “very lucky” in the support he has from his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

However, the prince admitted that he had struggled to make the transition between bachelorhood and family life.

“I’ve struggled at times. The alteration from being a single independent man to going into marriage and then having children is life-changing,” he continued.

“I adore my children very much and I’ve learned a lot about myself and about family just from having my own children. It’s amazing how much you pick up from them just in those moments.”

The prince also shed some light on what it’s like to be father to his royal brood.

“George is a right little rascal sometimes,” said William. “He keeps me on my toes. But he’s a sweet boy.”

Charlotte seems to be less hard work than her big brother, however.

“Bear in mind I haven’t had a sister. So having a daughter is a very different dynamic. So i’m learning about having having a daughter, having a girl in the family,” said William.
