Prince William has given an update on his newborn son, saying the two-day-old is sleeping “reasonably well” at the moment.
The royal was back to work in London on Wednesday, just two days after his wife Kate gave birth to their third child.
William, 35, joined his brother Prince Harry, 33, and Harry’s fiancée, Meghan Markle, 36, in attending a ceremony at Westminster Abbey to mark Anzac Day.
Anzac Day commemorates all Australian and New Zealand citizens who have lost their lives in conflict, and marks the anniversary of the Gallipoli Campaign landings in 1915 during the First World War.
According to the Evening Standard, the proud new dad was congratulated by fellow attendees on his son’s arrival, and asked how the little boy and his mum are getting on.
William said: “They’re very well thanks. In good form, luckily.”
He then added: “Sleeping’s going reasonably well so far, so he’s behaving himself, which is good news.”
The new dad was also heard talking about names with fellow attendees.
Alexander Downer, the Australian High Commissioner, told William he thought Alexander was a good name, to which Wills replied: “Funny you should say that… It’s a good name.”
William then met Sir Jerry Mateparae, the New Zealand High Commissioner to the UK, and agreed with him that Jerry is a “strong” name.
“It’s a strong name, I have to say,” he said.
Of course, no baby name has been announced yet, but it’s widely expected to be released later today, with Arthur the current bookies’ favourite.
Although William joked about using the name Alexander, that could be unlikely given Alexander is one of his son Prince George’s middle names.
William was seen kissing Harry’s fiancée Meghan on the cheek as he arrived for the service, before heading inside.
Earlier in the day, Harry and former actress Meghan had attended a dawn service for Anzac Day at Wellington Arch in London’s Hyde Park Corner.

Harry laid a wreath to commemorate those who have been lost, while the former soldier also left a handwritten note.
He and Meghan were welcomed with a traditional Maori greeting, with Sir Jerry Mateparae telling BBC News that Meghan had been “very interested” in the service.
“It’s her first Anzac service so we were explaining what it meant to us and the Australian memorial, so for her it was a new experience,” he said.
The Duchess of Cambridge was at home with her newborn son and older children Prince George, four, and two-year-old Princess Charlotte.
It’s believed Kate will not be seen in public again until Harry and Meghan’s wedding on May 19.
