Prince William has been given the sweetest gift for his daughter Princess Charlotte, who he welcomed into the world on 2 May with his wife the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton. William was carrying out an engagement on Wednesday morning where he met the England Women's football team at St George's Park in Staffordshire.

The team gave William a personalised football shirt for his two-week-old baby with her name Charlotte and the number one emblazoned across the back.

The doting dad was pictured grinning and holding the shirt up appreciatively as he chatted to the female players on the pitch.

The athletes also took the opportunity to quiz William, 32, on his and Kate's newborn daughter and their adorable son Prince George, who will turn two in July.

"He was saying he's obviously really enjoying being a father and Princess Charlotte is actually keeping him up," team captain Steph Houghton told reporters. "He was saying George never stops moving!"

Fellow player Jill Scott added: "He said he'd had a few sleepless nights. The baby will be up and George is running around now isn't he? It reflects that he does have a normal life away from his duty as a prince."

It's been less than three weeks since baby Charlotte – whose full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana – was born, but William is already back on the work circuit fulfilling his royal duties.

As President of the Football Association, the Prince was meeting the national football team ahead of their involvement in the FIFA Women's World Cup 2015 in Canada. The players will jet off in five days' time and ahead of the tournament they took part in training sessions, while William cheered them on from the sides.

The future King also took part in a meet and greet with the players in their dressing room, where he was introduced to head coach Mark Sampson and another of the team's senior members Fara Williams, who is also patron of the Homeless FA.

William also met head of the Homeless FA Gareth Parker. Homeless FA is part of Centrepoint, the UK's leading youth homelessness charity, of which the royal is a patron.
