- Prince William revealed that he learned to style his daughter Princess Charlotte's hair from watching YouTube tutorials, but joked that he still has trouble with ponytails, which he calls a "nightmare."
- The Duke of Cambridge dropped the sweet tidbit while speaking to a fellow dad during his visit to Blackpool, England with Kate Middleton today.
- William and Kate have three children together: Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 10 months.
We interrupt your weekday with an extremely adorable revelation: Prince William styles his daughter Princess Charlotte's hair. The father of three bonded with another dad about the struggles of playing parent-turned-hairdresser during his visit to Blackpool with wife Kate Middleton today, People reports.
Apparently, William learned the ropes on hairstyling from watching YouTube tutorials, but he still has trouble mastering one basic 'do with his three-year-old. "Never try to do a ponytail!" he said. "Nightmare."
Duchess Kate even quizzed her husband's hairdressing skills. "Have you tried to do a plait [braid]? It’s the weaving…really hard," she asked, per People.
"I can do [Charlotte’s] ponytail, but that’s about it as I don’t have enough hair to practice on!" William answered.
Can the Duke of Cambridge please start a YouTube channel and vlog about his attempts to give Princess Charlotte different hairstyles? We can already picture it: He's putting a scrunchie in her hair with intense focus in the kitchen in the morning before preschool starts. His and Kate's five-year-old son, Prince George, runs past the camera in a mischievous cameo. Their youngest, 10-month-old Prince Louis, coos in the background in a high chair. This is the content we deserve!
In addition to chatting about pampering their kids, the duke and duchess' trip to Blackpool today entailed visiting "innovative projects focused on investment and regeneration" and learning about how they tackle social and mental health problems faced by British people, Kensington Palace announced.
The Cambridge children make public appearances much less frequently than their parents do (the last time we saw George and Charlotte out and about was at Princess Eugenie's wedding in October), but we have our fingers crossed that the princess' next cameo involves a hairdo personally done by her dad.
