Prince William says his son Prince George is already a bit of a royal rascal, while the baby's mother, Kate Middleton, is doing a fantastic job of it.
William told CNN in his first interview since becoming a dad that posing for the first Royal Baby photos the day after George's birth felt oddly logical.
"I was on such a high anyway, and so was Catherine about George, that really we were happy to show him off to whoever wanted to see him," he gushed.
"As any new parent knows, you’re only too happy to show off your new child and, you know, proclaim that he is the best looking or the best everything."
England's newest royal proved to be on his best behavior then, William pointed out: "I'm just glad he wasn’t screaming his head off the whole way through!"
Global royal watchers were impressed when the new royal family left the hospital, and William installed the car seat himself without a hitch.
"Believe me, it wasn't my first time," the 31-year-old admitted in the interview.
"I know there's been speculation about that. I had to practice, I really did."
The first-time dad was also the first to change George's diaper, or "nappy" in British parlance: "I had every midwife staring at me, 'You do it. You do it.'"
George, he said, is a little bit of a "rascal" who is "growing quite quickly actually. But he's a little fighter. He kind of, he wriggles around quite a lot."
"And he doesn't want to go to sleep that much, which is a bit of a problem."
William confided that he's up at all hours as a result, but "not as much as Catherine," he said of wife of two years Kate Middleton. "She's doing a fantastic job.
"For me, Catherine, and now little George are my priorities."
"I think the last few weeks for me have been just a very emotional experience. Something I never thought I would feel myself … a lot of things affect me differently now."
