To the outside world, Kate Middleton and Prince William might seem like the perfect parents to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and little Prince Louis.
But in reality, they face all the same family struggles that the rest of us do.
And it turns out they currently have one very specific parenting dilemma on their hands, as the Duke of Cambridge revealed last week.
Speaking during an engagement at the BBC to mark Anti-Bullying Week, the 36-year-old opened up about his children’s internet use.
In an incredibly relatable speech, William revealed that finding a balance between quality family time and time spent online can be "quite difficult".
He went on to explain that it’s something his family haven’t actually managed to achieve yet, reports The Express.
"We still haven’t worked out what the right balance is for online time," William said.
"It’s quite difficult, it’s still a very fluid dynamic.
"We’re going to have that discussion with our family, how on earth are we going to police and have family time when the phones are all put down and you’re offline?"
"Because we’re all so connected now that we’ve got to say for instance, ‘right, we’re eating now.’"
The Duke also raised the question of how other parents handle the problem.
He said: "This generation are going to be the first generation to grow up fully immersed in mobile phones, social media, lots of stuff.
"And yet our generation, the older generation, the parent generation, we’re completely left at, ‘how do we deal this this? Where do we go to? Where do you learn about how to look after your children’s digital world?’"
On the same day Prince William also gave a passionate anti-cyberbullying speech in which he attacked social media and tech companies.
The father-of-three admitted that social media companies had "done more to connect the world than has ever been achieved in human history".
But went on to add: "I am worried, though, that our technology companies still have a great deal to learn about the responsibilities that come with their significant power.
