Prince William became a dad-of-three on Monday and was already back out at official engagements for the royal family today, revealing how he and Kate are adjusting to being parents to a newborn again.

Prince William is out-and-about on royal duties today (25 April), just two days after his wife, Kate Middleton, gave birth to their third child. (opens in new tab)

Many were shocked that Kate left the hospital so quickly (opens in new tab) after giving birth and then were similarly surprised to see William back out on behalf of the royal family today.

Prince William joined his brother Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle at Westminster Abbey for an Anzac Day service.

As he arrived the prince was asked how his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, and their newborn baby son were doing. He replied: 'Very well thanks', before adding that everyone from his brood were actually: 'In good form, luckily'.

The father-of-three also revealed that his newest son, yet to be named, had been sleeping well. He told the reporters: 'Sleeping’s going reasonably well so far. So he’s behaving himself, which is good.'

Of course, the question on  everybody's lips is what will the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge name the new royal baby?' but Prince William hasn't given anything away yet.

The new father-of-three did however drop some hints as to what the royal couple might have chosen to call their son, with Prince William overheard joking about possible baby names including Alexander and - less conventionally -  Jerry.

It is not known when William and Kate will make the announcement but the whole world is on standby until they do.

Prince George's name was revealed two days after his birth and Princess Charlotte's was also announced two days after she was born. Therefore it is likely the announcement will come any day now - we can't wait!
