Prince William and Duchess Kate: They meet young fathers and talk about their roles


Once again, Prince William and Duchess Kate met with British citizens via video chat. This time they were talking to young fathers.

During the corona pandemic, Prince William (38) and Duchess Kate (38) are increasingly taking care of appointments with charitable organizations that they would like to support during the crisis via video calls and conferences. Now they have met several young fathers virtually.

No superheroes wanted

What they have in common: The men are all supported by the Future Men charity, which helps young fathers in a wide variety of situations to find their way into their new roles. The organization supports around 500 fathers every year and of course their partners too, if, for example, they don't know what to do in a certain situation. William and Kate wanted to find out, among other things, what the biggest challenge for men is in connection with being a father.

"We have to be more lenient with ourselves than men and fathers," explained one of the participants in the video chat. "And we have to realize that we don't have to be perfect, that we don't have to be superheroes." With a corresponding clip on Instagram, which shows William and Kate during the conversation, the Royals draw attention to the work of the organization.
