The Duke of Cambridge has lifted the lid on his first days of fatherhood as he made his first public appearance since the birth of Prince George at a charity polo match.
William took a break from parenting duties to play in the Audi Polo Challenge at Coworth Park, Ascot, Berkshire alongside brother Harry, admitting he would be picking nappies up on his way home.
The 31-year-old, who scored the winning goal for his team, was presented with a mini polo stick for Prince George by Audi UK director Martin Sander after the match.
William jokingly asked if it was nappies, quipping: "I've got to pick some up on my way home."
The royal also admitted it was "good to get out of the house" for an afternoon. But meeting guests afterwards, he added: "I've got to make sure I'm not too late back."
Of his performance on the pitch, William admitted: "I was in baby mode out there, thinking about nappies, I wasn't really in the zone."
And asked about son George, who was born on July 22, he said: "He likes to move around a lot, he wriggles a lot, he keeps us on our toes."
The Audi Polo Challenge is held each year and this year was in aid of charities SkillForce and The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, of which William is patron and president respectively.
Kate attended last year's match, along with the couple's puppy Lupo, to support William and Harry, but there was no sign of her on Saturday.
She is thought to be at her parents' home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, with Prince George.
