The Duke of Cambridge is a doting dad to three children under the age of five, and despite the continuing public interest in the future King's family, he has always put his family first – and is determined to make sure his children have as much privacy as possible in their early years. And with this in mind, there is little wonder William – dad to Prince George, four, Princess Charlotte, three, and one-month-old Prince Louis - has been shortlisted for the Celebrity Dad of the Year 2018 award.

William joins other famous fathers, including Liam Payne and Simon Cowell, as well as Rio Ferdinand and Simon Thomas – who have both lost their wives in the past few years. Former Blue Peter presenter Simon is still coming to terms with the devastating sudden loss of his wife Gemma, who died suddenly in November 2017. Gemma had been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia, a type of blood cancer that affects the bone marrow, just three days before her death. Simon regularly updates fans on his grief and has taken to writing daily letters to his son Ethan, eight, to help him cope with the loss of his mother.
