The Prince of Wales has today revealed that his granddaughter, one-month-old Princess Charlotte, is already sleeping through the night.
Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall were hosting a tea party at Clarence House for pilots and aircrew who fought in WWII, when he told a guest about the newest addition to the Royal Family.
Geoff Bradley was one guest to the party; he was a gunner in Bristol Blenheim bombers. He said of his conversation with Charles: ‘We were talking about grandchildren, he was saying Princess Charlotte does sleep through the night and it was much easier on mum than Prince George.’
Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born on 2nd of May, and photos of her and her brother, Prince George, were released just a few days ago – see them here.
The Prince of Wales also joked about the change in helicopter technology, since his time as a Royal Navy helicopter pilot in the 1970s. Both Prince William and Prince Harry followed in their father’s footsteps and fly helicopters, with The Duke of Cambridge having just begun his new role with the East Anglian Air Ambulance Service.
Charles said of the new controls: ‘They’re all right for the PlayStation generation. I used to try playing with my children’, and then praised Prince Harry: ‘I take my hat off to my youngest, he seemed to be coping [with the technology].’
Harry is leaving the Army later this month after a decade of service; he flew Apache attack helicopters, including on a tour of Afghanistan.
