How tough is fatherhood for Prince William?

William told the crowd at a farming and country show in Wales on Wednesday – at the same time apologizing for the fact that wife Kate and son Georgie couldn't be with him.

The proud father also said his newborn is "pretty loud" but "extremely good looking." Referring to his son as "lovely," William earlier told some people that the family had had a "few sleepless nights," but the "new addition [is] sleeping much better now."

The birth of Prince George is being marked in many ways, and now jewelry is on the list.

The collection's designer, Claudia Bradby, has worked with the Duchess of Cambridge before and draws her inspiration from the Middleton crest, which features three acorns to represent their three children – Kate, Pippa and James.

"Mighty oaks from little acorns grow – that's the saying and the sentiment behind it," Bradby tells PEOPLE, adding: "Plus, it has some relevance to them as a couple because the inspiration for the design was drawn from her own family crest."

After the initial news release, the images would then be distributed on social media outlets like Twitter and on the couple's website.

"The whole point of these photos is that as many people have access to them who need to and we will find the easiest way of doing that," the source says.

In the safe, easy-going environment of the Middletons' Bucklebury home, Prince William, Kate and Prince George are settling into their new life as a family.

But as the demands of royal life inevitably take over, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will try to strike a balance between creating a relaxed upbringing with that befitting the status of a prince.

As they raise "Georgie" – as grandpa Prince Charles has dubbed him – the young couple will take guidance from how the late Princess Diana managed things, sources say.

"It'll be a carbon copy of how William and Harry were brought up, because of their mother," a friend tells PEOPLE. "However she's painted, her greatest legacy is her sons. The way they've been brought up and the way she taught them to think for themselves and to lead a normal life."

Within three hours of the sighting, the printed "Blossom" front-knot dress had completely sold out. Now there's a four-week waiting list with customers around the world clamoring to get a hold of one.
