Prince William was particularly outspoken about his family’s morning during the Apple Fitness + Time to Go series on Monday.
The Duke of Cambridge explained how he manages the “mass” fights that usually occur in the morning when his children choose which music to listen to.
“In the mornings, there is a massive debate between Charlotte and George over which song will sound in the morning,” said the Duke of Cambridge. “And now I have to basically prioritize so that one day someone will do it, and another day it will be someone else’s turn.”
“So George gets down to business, and then Charlotte takes her. Such is the noise of the music, ”he said.
Fortunately, there is some common ground between 8 and 6 year old siblings and little Prince Louis, 3 years old.
“One of the songs kids love right now is Shakira, ‘Waka Waka (This time for Africa),’” he said. “There is a lot of hip movement. You will have to change a lot. “
He said that Charlotte usually wears dresses and ballet accessories and then “goes crazy when Louis chases her, trying to do the same.”
“It’s a really happy moment when kids just enjoy dancing, messing around and singing,” he said.
William also talked about his happy memories of musical moments with his late mother, Princess Diana, and his brother, Prince Harry.
“When I was younger, Harry and I went to boarding school. And my mother played different songs to somehow get rid of the anxiety associated with returning to school, – said the duke.
“One of the songs that I have remembered and stuck with me all this time, and I still – to this day – still secretly enjoy it, is ‘The Best’ by Tina Turner,” he said. “Because sitting in the back seat and singing, it felt like a real family moment.”
“And my mother, she rode, sang at the top of her voice,” William explained. “And we even dragged the policeman into the car, he sang along from time to time.”
“You will sing and listen to music right outside the school gates when you are dropped off,” added the prince.
“That’s when the reality kind of drowned in the fact that you really go back to school, because before that you were lost in the songs,” – said William. “You’ll want to play it again, just to preserve this family moment. And when I listen to it now, it brings me back to those car trips and brings up a lot of memories of my mother. ”
