Prince William will be a ‘hands-on dad” according to one of his wife’s friends.

The 30-year-old royal - who married the Duchess of Cambridge 19 months ago - is said to be eager to start a family and wants to bring up his children without the help of a team of nannies, Jessica Hay claimed.

She said: “William is very much like his mother Princess Diana and will definitely be a hands-on dad and not rely heavily on nannies to raise his and Catherine’s children.

“They both try to be as normal as possible in their private lives and that of course is going to continue when they have children.”

Catherine and William’s friends all think the couple will make wonderful parents.

Jessica added to Life & Style magazine: “Everyone’s always said what great parents they’ll be, since they are such a caring couple and very relaxed. They will lavish love on their children.”
