Cape Town - It looks like Prince William has been on baby duty!

The Duke of Cambridge joined Prince Harry and his fiancée Meghan Markle at an Anzac Day service in Westminster on Wednesday.

Although he was laughing and joking around before the service, the dad-of-three was overcome with fatigue once the one-hour long ceremony began, reports Daily Mail.

Prince William could be seen dropping his head for a brief moment and closing his eyes, before quickly waking himself up again.

According to The Sun, the Duke told dignitaries that both Kate and the newborn baby are both in good health.

“Sleeping is going reasonably well so far, so he’s behaving himself, which is good news,” William said.

This is the first event Prince William has attended since the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to their third child on Monday morning.

The service, which took place in London, commemorates Australia and New Zealand's fallen soldiers and those who’ve served in conflict areas, reports The Mirror.

According to, William was heard telling other guests that the newborn has a ‘strong name’ and also dropped a hint about what the possible name could be.

When Australia’s High Commissioner Alexander Downer suggested his own name, Alexander, Prince William seemed to agree.

“Funny you should say that . . . It’s a good name,” said Prince William.

According to People, the royal family usually announces the name two days after the birth, which means the announcement is coming soon.
