Prince William ponders fatherhood.

Throughout the documentary, William speaks to several professional athletes, including professional footballer Marvin Sordell, who grew up without a father – a situation to which William can relate after the death of his mother, Princess Diana, in an accident in car when he was only 15 years old.
“I think when you have experienced something traumatic in life – and it is as if you said that your father was not there, my mother dying when I was younger – your emotions come back by leaps and bounds because it’s a very different phase in life, ”said William, 37, of Us Weekly. “And there is no one out there to sort of help you out, and I have certainly found it very, at times, overwhelming. “

However, William noted that he had an excellent parenting partner in his wife, Kate Middleton.
“We go through these moments together and we evolve and learn together,” he said.
The two share George, 6, Charlotte, 5, and Louis, 2.
“I think emotionally things come out of the blue that you never expect or maybe you think you have faced and so I can completely understand what you are saying about the children coming , it’s one of the most incredible moments of life, but it’s also one of the most frightening, “added the royal.
William told Sordell, 29, that his father “would be very proud of” him.
“Your mom too,” replied the athlete.
