Prince William admitted that he became "more emotional" when he became a father. The 33-year-old prince is a recent father to two young royals, Prince George, 2, and Princess Charlotte, who was born in May.
The interview was for an ITV documentary for Prince Charles' Trust Charity, which he hopes will be taken over by his sons, William and Prince Harry. During the interview, William admitted that things that happen all over the world affect him more now and he added that being a father made him appreciate "how precious life is," according to the Associated Press.
"I'm a lot more emotional than I used to be, weirdly. I never used to get too wound up or worried about things. But now the smallest little things, you well up a little more, you get affected by the sort of things that happen around the world or whatever a lot more, I think, as a father," William said, according to ITV News.
"Just because you realise how precious life is and it puts it all in perspective," he said. "The idea of not being around to see your children grow up and stuff like that."

The charity began in 1976 that was founded on the money Prince Charles received as severance pay when he left the Royal Navy, amounting to £7,400. The charity has grown into one of the biggest charities in Britain that was able to send assistance to 825,000 youths, according to BBC.
The documentary entitled "When Ant and Dec Met The Prince: 40 Years of the Prince's Trust" is 90 minutes long and will be shown on the ITV channel on Monday evening, 21:00 GMT.
