Prince William says Princess Charlotte is 'fine, she's good' at Windsor Castle ceremony

Prince William gave an update on his newborn daughter Princess Charlotte on Tuesday, telling reggae star Brinsley Forde: "She's fine, she's good". The second-in-line to the throne was awarding Brinsley an MBE at Windsor Castle when the pair talked about their children and William confirmed two-week-old Charlotte was doing well.

Speaking to People magazine, Brinsley added that he "congratulated [William] on Charlotte and we spent a little time talking, as my son Jermaine's about to have a little one. So he congratulated me too."

The 32-year-old Prince also revealed a surprising musical talent, admitting to Brinsley that he can play the bass guitar. Brinsley told the media after the ceremony: "I've just got a new bass player - you might know him as the Duke of Cambridge.

"He said 'I'm a bit good on the bass guitar' so I'm thinking of signing him up, but he's got such a lot of other duties I don't know whether he'll have time to do it."

Mary Peters became a Member of the Order of the Companions of Honour

Brinsley, the former frontman of Eighties band Aswad, was attending the Windsor Castle investiture ceremony along with gold medal Olympian Mary Peters, who became a member of the Order of the Companions of Honour for services to sport and the community in Northern Ireland.

This is William's second royal duty in a week. He left the Duchess of Cambridge née Kate Middleton, with their newborn daughter on Monday to fly to Switzerland to support a cause close to his heart, a meeting of the United for Wildlife movement - a foundation he created with the Duchess and Prince Harry.

It was the first time the father-of-two has been seen in public since he and Kate left Kensington Palace with their baby Princess and her big brother Prince George headed for their country retreat Anmer Hall.

On Wednesday, William will visit the England Women's football team at the National Football Centre at St George's Park as they prepare for the upcoming World Cup in Canada.
