Prince William Not Sure What "Normal" Is, Thinks It's The Royal Family

Prince William is, well, an actual prince, in line for the British throne after his father, Prince Charles, but still thinks his family is “normal.”

“As far as we are concerned within our family unit, we are a normal family,” tells the BBC in a new interview.

The interviewer had suggested that at some point Wills realized he wasn't from an “ordinary family,” and that his grandmother was Queen Elizabeth, who celebrates her 90th birthday on April 21. 

William also discussed his own children, saying he and Kate Middleton are trying to raise them to be as normal as he can.

"I love my children in the same way any father does, and I hope George loves me the same way any son does to his father," he said. "We are very normal in that sense. There'll be a time and a place to bring George up and understand how he fits in, in the world. But right now it's just a case of keeping a secure, stable environment around him and showing as much love as a I can as father." 

And while the royal dad wants to still do his royal duties, like his air ambulance job, he is focused on being a father right now.

"I'm going to get plenty of criticism over my life time. It's something I don't completely ignore, but it's not something I take completely to heart. I'm concentrating very much on my role as a father. I’m a new father and I take my duties and my responsibilities to my family very seriously. I want to bring my children up as good people, with the idea of service and duty to others as very important. But if I can't give my time to my children as well, then I worry about my future."
