While his duchess stays home to incubate Royal Baby 2: Second Helpings of Royal, Prince William is currently roaming Asia, gamely participating in a wide array of photo ops. And so it's time for our very favorite globally syndicated entertainment program: Royals Doing Things!

He also played with some adorable children (and also the prime minister of Japan) in a ball pit:

He also rode a bicycle indoors. Will, you scamp.

A royal's work is never done.
