According to a report by the Daily Star, the royal baby has been struggling to stay asleep for any significant amount of time overnight.

A familiar story for many parents, Wills has apparently been trying anything to get the baby prince to snooze – even by “belting out” his favourite Coldplay tunes.

A royal source said William had adopted this “bizarre tactic” in his struggle for sleep, and that he had no idea caring for a newborn ”would be this tough”.

“Coldplay aren’t even his favourite band, but George responds to their songs the most and settles back down.”

Unfortunately, Wills’ tactics do not seem to be hugely effective – if these images are to be believed – as the baby Prince of Cambridge looks wide awake in every one of them.

Aside from fulfilling his role as a Chris Martin tribute act, Prince William has also been reading the royal baby stories.

An inside source has told us that the baby’s favourite book is ‘Paddington at the Palace’, as he seems especially calm when listening to that particular tale being read to him in daddy’s dulcet tones.

We hate to break it to you Wills – but maybe George is a bit young to fully appreciate the plot… ?

It also seems that the royal parents were accompanied to the Middleton’s Berkshire home by their favourite footman. Wills has rightfully been offloading some of the stress onto this faithful subject, if this photo is an accurate reflection of recent goings on.

It sounds as if Kate and Wills need all the help they can get – hopefully Georgie will start sleeping through very soon!
