Illustration for article titled Charlotte Is Easier Than Prince George, Not That Its a Competition

(It’s a competition.)

That’s according to proud second-time grandpa Prince Charles, via somebody he talked to at a tea-time for World War II veterans, reports the Press Association:

Geoff Bradley was invited along with his wife Veronica as her father Owen Burns, who will be 100 in November, had been a gunner in Bristol Blenheim bombers.

He said: “We were talking about grandchildren, he was saying Princess Charlotte does sleep through the night and it was much easier on mum than Prince George.”


That’s a change from a few weeks ago, the last time somebody asked a family member about how it was going, notes People, when Prince William admitted that they weren’t getting much shut-eye. Well, like any older sibling, Prince George knows what he wants and it’s a pity about your sleeping schedule but that’s not really his priority, now is it? (Disclaimer: I am an older sibling.)

It wasn’t all baby talk, though. Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, got in a little reminisce about her father, who served in the war then sold wine afterward:

She said: “My father was in the wine business so as children we used to take wine and water and I have drunk it ever since.

“He always said it was his medicine and it kept him going - he used to take two or three glasses a day.”

When she was told that her guests had also been served whisky she said: “All the old fashioned doctors always gave you whisky, whisky and lemon and a bit of honey - a toddy.”
