No doubt who's in charge in this royal household! Prince William, a keen soccer fan, admits he's looking forward to the day he can take Prince George and Princess Charlotte to see a game. But despite being the Duke of Cambridge, there's someone's permission he'd have to get first.

"I'll have to pass that by the missus," William, 32, joked to the BBC about his wife, Kate Middleton, "see how I can get away with it!" he laughed. "At the moment, [with George] being only 22 months, it’s a little bit early," he added.

But while he's happy to defer to his wife when it comes to choosing when it's the right time for his son or daughter to attend a high-profile football match, when it comes to picking which team to support, the dad-of-two (an ardent Aston Villa supporter) admits he's going to find it harder to be flexible.

"The responsible thing would be to say, to let him make his own mind up, but I think I might be quite biased," the Prince admitted.

"I haven’t quite worked out how to play that yet. Of course he can support whoever he wants, but if he supports Villa, it’d be fantastic. I’d love to go to the odd match with him in the future," he said. "It’ll probably end up being that Charlotte is the Villa fan, and George will go and support someone else!”

Prince William has been getting back to royal duties after his paternity leave following the birth of his second child, Princess Charlotte of Cambridge at the start of the month.

Talking at a recent public appearance with England's Women's Football team, he admitted he wasn't getting much sleep with a new baby in the house.

“He said George is very lively, and Princess Charlotte has been keeping him up all night, giving him a few sleepless nights,” the team’s caption, Steph Houghton, told reporters.
