The Duke of Cambridge was speaking at a Welsh Rugby Charitable Trust event in honour of rugby players who had been seriously injured and was asked how his young children were.

“Very well. No broken bones so far but they are trying - running around and pushing things and jumping,” he said.

The Royal urged the other fathers present to offer him some hope for the future.

“Please tell me it gets easier. Charlotte is very easy, she is sweet - but all the fathers say to me, "just you wait, when they get to nine or 11 they get crazy". I'm looking forward to it. There will be some drama,” he said.

Meanwhile, the children’s mother the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton recently said she would not hesitate to seek help if Prince George or Princess Charlotte ever had mental health problems.

In a blog on The Huffington Post, The Duchess wrote: "The mental health of our children must be seen as every bit as important as their physical health.

"For too long we have been embarrassed to admit when our children need emotional or psychiatric help, worried that the stigma associated with these problems would be detrimental to their futures."

The Duchess went on to say: "We hope to encourage George and Charlotte to speak about their feelings, and to give them the tools and sensitivity to be supportive peers to their friends as they get older.
