Prince William just gave some wise words to new dads during today's royal engagement
Today, Prince William continued his week of charitable work by meeting new dads at Future Men charity, a London-based organisation that offers support to men and boys, empowering them to make positive choices.
During his visit, the Duke of Cambridge met with a group of new dads, giving a few words on parenthood as they began to complete parenting workshops which included, changing a nappy, joking about the task William told fellow dads:
"It's never straightforward".

As of last year, Prince William became the father to three, with Prince Louis joining the family in April 2018.
But William isn't the only one who speaks about the struggles of parenting, earlier in the week, his wife, Kate Middleton too discussed how naive she felt when she first had kids.
"I was very naive myself as a parent of really just how important particularly the early years are for children's futures. And how critical it is, everyone looking after children at a critical time, teachers, parents, and everyone who's caring for them, how important it is that we get it right," she revealed during a mental health conference.

Both Kate and William are continuing to work hard to help charities close to their heart with William becoming Royal Patron of The Passage yesterday - a charity close to both his and his late mother, Princess Diana's heart.

The Passage is the UK’s largest resource centre for homeless and insecurely housed people. Established in 1980, the charity has since helped over 130,000 people in crisis through its resource centre, homelessness prevention projects and two innovative accommodation services.
During his younger years, Prince William used to visit the charity alongside his mom and those visits have left a lasting effect and a desire to do more good.

"The visits I made as a child to this place left a deep and lasting impression upon me – about how important it is to ensure that everyone in our society, especially the poorest, are treated with respect, dignity and kindness, and are given the opportunities to fulfill their potential in life," William said during a visit in 2016.
