Since the beginning of their relationship, Duke William and Kate Middleton have won over the world; their adoration for one another is truly captivating and their respect for one another is raising the standard for couples- and now families- around the world.
When the world learned that Duke William and Kate would be starting a family, the internet nearly broke from massive amounts of international traffic. Only two years after they married, Wills and Kate welcomed their first son, Prince George. Two years later came Princess Charlotte. The family of four was beloved by the world.
Duke William was so thrilled to become a father that he took two weeks off from official royal duties after both George and Charlotte were born. The family escaped from their work and paparazzi to their country homes where they could be together as a family. Their time together was special and so very needed. But now we’re wondering, why didn’t Duke William do the same thing with Prince Louis?
Just like the first two royal babies, the world went mad for Kate’s third pregnancy. All were excited beyond measure, especially Kate and Wills. Kate delivered a perfectly healthy baby boy named Louis on April 23rd, 2018. Only 7 hours later, the couple appeared on the steps of the Lindo Wing.
They drove off with Prince Louis in the back seat, and the world let out a collective sigh as they figured they wouldn’t see Prince Louis for another two weeks while he was on paternity leave. But, that wasn’t the case…
Surprisingly enough, the Duke appeared at a Royal Event only two days after the arrival of Prince Louis! Fans and media outlets were shocked to see him out only two days after his son’s arrival, especially because he had taken a two-week leave with his other two children!
With so many confused by William’s quick return, Kensington Palace released a statement regarding the parental leave, and we’ve gotta say, it was more adorable than anything else!
Hello Magazine shares that the Duke returned so quickly to work for one simple reason: Kate!
William wanted to transfer his parental leave to Kate so that she could have more time to rest and enjoy her three children! His quick return made it so Kate could remain on leave until Autumn! Surely, that reasoning is the sweetest thing ever and only confirms why they are the most adorable couple.
What do you think about this? We think it just the sweetest thing!
