    Duke of Cambridge worries for new fathers who lack support

    The Duke of Cambridge has voiced concern about new fathers who have no idea what to do and no one to turn to. The Duke, a father-of-three, said he worried “an awful lot” about men who did not have a support network or anyone around them who could offer crucial guidance at such a daunting time. Both the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge took part in a video call with a group supported by Future Men, a London-based charity providing guidance to men and boys. The Duke asked: "How does Future Men find some of these other guys out there who have not got the realisation, or the wherewithal if you like, to go looking for services like Future Men and be able to build on a happy future as a father? "Because I worry an awful lot, a lot of dads out there who just don't know what to do, and they don't know where to go. And they may not have such good - either grounding, foundations or support around them to be able to know what to do." The Duke has previously spoken of the “life-changing” moment he became a father after the trauma of his young life, revealing that having children was one of the “scariest” moments he has experienced.
