Even if they live in palaces and, from the outside, lead a life full of splendor and splendor, in everyday life the members of the British Royal Family are also confronted with completely normal family problems and banal household tasks. Prince William (41) has now described a situation that will probably be familiar to many parents of young children.

While visiting a farm for young people, the heir to the British throne and father of three children was given a guinea pig in his arms on Thursday (April 25). As videos show, the prince greeted the guinea pig with a friendly “Hello” and stroked it. According to People, William revealed that there is also a guinea pig in his household. He also admitted that the task of cleaning the guinea pig hutch falls to him – because his children “forget” it.

It is known that William and his family have some pets. The family dog ​​Orla, a black cocker spaniel, lives with William, Princess Kate (42), Prince George (10), Princess Charlotte (8) and Prince Louis (6). Kate also said in 2016 that the family had a hamster.

Prince William’s visit to the farm, which offers therapy programs for children and young people, was one of several appointments the 41-year-old attended in the West Midlands on Thursday. He also paid a surprise visit to a school.
