The footballer knows the Prince of Cambridge will be taken care of

David Beckham is sure that Prince William and Kate Middleton are going raise their baby son brilliantly.

The footballer, 38, is friends with the couple and was invited to the Royal Wedding in 2011, so he reckons he’s got a pretty good insight into how they’ll look after their little one.

‘They’re going to be amazing parents because they’re so loving towards children – you see the way they are,’ says David.

‘I’ve seen more of William than I have of Kate, but he’s been in all our lives for so many years.

‘We’ve seen him grow from that young boy into an unbelievable gentleman. It’s an amazing quality that he shows and, as a father, that is so important.’

Kate and William, both 31, welcomed the Prince of Cambridge at London’s St Mary’s Hospital on Monday and made their first public appearance with him yesterday.
