Prince William Goes Into Complete Dad Mode During Latest Outing

Earlier this week, Prince William (41) embarked on a royal walkabout tour to help spread the word about his newest initiative, the Homewards project.

During the latest stop of the tour, Prince William traveled to the Tillydrone Community Campus in Aberdeen, Scotland, to learn about the services offered to the community.

As part of the Royal Foundation, the Homewards project aims to eliminate homelessness in the U.K. At yesterday’s event, in addition to learning about the services offered, the Prince of Wales also personally met and talked with staff members about the initiative’s efforts to end homelessness.

In an array of photos taken during the visit, royal admirers had a chance to see the prince enter complete dad mode when talking to a child. As seen in the photo below (which was shared on the Homewards IG page), William can be seen happily talking to a toddler while the mother holds the child up to interact with the prince.

Prince William also shared photos from his tour on his own Twitter page that showed him interacting with kids even more. He wrote in the tweet, “To everyone who we’ve met launching #Homewards over the last two days, thank you!” He continued, “Together we’re going to show that homelessness can be ended!” He signed the Twitter message, “W,” a signal that he penned the caption personally.

This is certainly not the first time we’ve seen the prince show off his parenting skills. Back in May, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton (41), paid a visit to the 3rd Upton Scout Group in Slough, England.

During the trip, the pair were the ultimate dynamic duo as they interacted with a number of kids. The Prince and Princess of Wales were joined by their three children: Prince George (9), Princess Charlotte (8) and Prince Louis (5).


We love seeing Prince William’s parenting side come out.
