Having happily embraced life as father since the birth of Prince George in July 2013, Prince William says the arrival of his second baby with the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, will be "a game changer". The Prince, who will become a dad for the second time next month, made the comment during a day of engagements in South London.
"We were talking about him becoming a father again," said 40-year-old Claudia French, who met the Prince during a walkabout. "He said "The first time is a learning experience, the second time is a game-changer."

Claudia, who was in attendance with her daughter Lily, added that William quizzed her about her little one.
"William was asking me if Lily was the same age as Prince George," she said. "And I said she was and he asked me if she was walking yet."
The 32-year-old Duke also told well-wishers that there's "not long to go" until Prince George has a younger brother or sister.
William and Kate spent Friday touring several youth charities in south London
Friday saw William and Kate show their support for young people in south London, stepping out in Deptford, Gipsy Hill and Sydenham, to see first-hand how several charities help and provide services to youngsters in schools and local communities.
The expectant Duchess dressed her baby bump in a cerise coat by British fashion house Mulberry which she previously wore during her two-day visit to New York in December.
First on William and Kate's agenda was a tour of the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust's headquarters in Deptford. The centre, which regularly hosts exhibitions, seminars and artistic events, is described as a "place for community learning and social research, inspiring and motivating young people".
William and Kate then headed to urban youth charity XLP which operates in over 60 schools and deals with a wide variety of issues including drugs awareness, anger management, poverty and racism.
