Prince William and his brother Prince Harry participated Saturday in the Audi Polo Challenge at Coworth Park, Ascot, Berkshire.

The polo match was the new father’s first time away from Duchess Kate and Prince George and suffice it to say — both of his family members occupied his thoughts during the charity event.

The Duke of Cambridge, 31, scored the winning goal for his team but claims his mind was not on the game.

He said, “I was in baby mode out there, thinking about nappies, I wasn’t really in the zone.” As an afterthought, Prince William acknowledged that “it was good to get out of the house for the afternoon.”

The future King seemed genuinely pleased when told there was a special gift for his son. He mused, “It’s not diapers, is it? I’ve got to pick some up on my way home.”

William seemed particularly pleased while inspecting a specially crafted mini polo mallet. He thanked the charity and cautioned, “I’ve got to make sure I’m not too late getting back. He really keeps us on our toes.”

Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, born 12 days ago, has spent the majority of his young life with his Royal parents at the home of commoners — his maternal grandparents, Michael and Carole Middleton.
