Prince William was “shocked” and “high” during Prince George’s photocall.

On Wednesday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex introduced their newborn son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to the world. And Prince Harry seemed to have had a different condition from older brother Prince William during their respective firstborn baby's debut.

In a newly-resurfaced CNN interview, Prince William admitted how he really felt the moment he and Kate Middleton appeared on the steps at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London to show Prince George to the world for the first time. The father of three confessed that he had mixed emotions.

“I think more shock was the feeling I felt, but I was on such a high anyway, and so was Catherine, about George that really we were happy to show him off to whoever wanted to see him,” Prince William said. “As any new parent knows, you're only too happy to show off your new child and, you know, proclaim that he is the best looking or the best everything.”

The second in line to the throne was happy that many wanted to see Prince George. Prince William added that he was glad his son wasn’t screaming his head off the whole way through.

Prince William also recalled how he felt when he placed his newborn son’s car seat in the back of his vehicle. He admitted that it wasn’t his first time because he really practiced for it. However, he was still terrified that it was going to fall off or if the door won’t close properly.

The Duke of Cambridge opted to drive his wife and son home after Prince George’s debut. He said that the decision to do so wasn’t more about modernizing the British monarchy but more on him simply doing things his way.

Middleton and Meghan Markle’s debut for their first child was also compared. According to body language expert Patti Woods, the Duchess of Cambridge was more comfortable with motherhood compared to the former “Suits” star. Markle was showing signs of strain on her face and there was tension around her ankles and feet.

TalkRADIO host Kait Borsay encouraged Markle to open up about her pregnancy experience with honesty. She also warned the new royal mom of the “rude wake up call” that awaits her when baby Archie grows up.
