Prince William takes time off baby’s nappies to play polo

Prince William took some time off his newly-acquired fatherhood for a charity polo match, his first official engagement since his son George was born last month.
The Duke of Cambridge teamed up with brother Prince Harry for the match yesterday in Berkshire, south-east England, and scored the winning goal for his team.

‘It's good to get away for the afternoon. I was in baby mode out there, thinking about nappies, I wasn't really in the zone,’ he told guests at Coworth Park.
As he was presented with a mini polo stick for Prince George he jokingly asked if it was nappies, and said, ‘I've got to pick some up on my way home. I've got to make sure I'm not too late back.’

And asked about the new royal baby, who was born on 22 July, he added, ‘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.
Wife Kate had attended last year's match, along with the couple's pet puppy Lupo, to support William and Harry, but this year she stayed back at her parents' home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, with Prince George.
On Friday, Kensington Palace had announced that the birth of the third-in-line to Britain's throne had been formally registered after a registrar from Westminster City Council visited the palace.
William signed the birth register entry for his son, listing his and wife Kate's jobs as prince and princess of the United Kingdom.

The Duke's two weeks' paternity leave is due to end shortly, which means he will return to work as a search and rescue pilot at Royal Air Force (RAF) Valley
in Anglesey.

It is unclear whether he will be joined by Kate and their son to show him off to colleagues and friends at the base in Wales. Kensington Palace is expected to announce in the coming weeks the direction the Duke's career will take.

It is thought he will leave his Anglesey-based job and return to a London-
based role to be close to his family.
