When asked by a royal fan where his five-year-old, three-year-old and seven-month-old were, Prince William honestly answered, "Because I can't do this and look after the children".

Her husband said: 'We see our main function as giving my daughter and her husband peace of mind.

Prince William and Catherine had collected the presents from those family members when they hosted a party at Kensington Palace a day earlier. "Did they get back [home] okay?"
