Prince William has revealed that since becoming a father he has become more emotional

"Just because you realise how precious life is and it puts it all in perspective. The idea of not being around to see you children grow up [is horrible]," said the 33-year-old who lost his own mother, Princess Diana, when he was only 15-years-old.The Princes’ trust was set up by Prince Charles in the 1970s. The charity aims to help disadvantaged children “who are unemployed or struggling at school, to transform their lives.”

Also speaking on the TV documentary was Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. The 68-year-old praised her husband’s idea for the charity, saying: "I’m really proud to be married to some who, 40 years ago, aged 27, had the vision to put it together, I mean it was an incredible idea then.""For somebody – who was very young then – to think of it and to think of these very disadvantaged young people who had literally been to hell and back and to find a way to give them a second chance in life. You know if you’re passionate about something you can do it, he cares so much about these young people," she added.
