Prince revels in new role

His newborn son is “a little bit of a rascal” and car seats can daunt any dad, Britain’s Prince William says.

The second in line to the British throne has described his joy at introducing his son to the world at a London hospital last month — and about his nerves over fitting the car seat securely into the Land Rover before driving off.

William told CNN in his first interview since Prince George’s birth on July 22 that both he and the Duchess of Cambridge couldn’t wait to show off their son when they emerged from St. Mary’s Hospital.

“I’m just glad he wasn’t screaming his head off the whole way through,” he said in an interview broadcast Monday.

William was quizzed on a range of child-rearing topics. He acknowledged that his expert performance sliding the car seat into the back of the royal four-wheel drive was a well-drilled exercise.

The interview is part of a CNN documentary, “Prince William’s Passion: New Hope, New Father,” to air Sept. 15.
