  • Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, holds his new-born baby boy in front of the world's media outside the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in London on July 23, 2013.

Prince William gave guests at a charity polo match an insight into his newfound paternal duties on Saturday, saying his mind had been stuck in “baby mode” thanks to his feisty newborn son.

William was playing alongside his brother Harry at the Audi Polo Challenge in the English village of Ascot, less than two weeks after he and his wife, Kate, had their first child, Prince George.

He told spectators it was “good to get out of the house” for the afternoon.

The 31-year-old royal managed to score the winning goal for his team and was later presented with a miniature polo stick for his baby boy.

He jokingly asked if he’d be getting some nappies — the British term for diapers — instead, telling guests he had to “pick some up on my way home.”

Of his performance on the pitch, William said he was “in baby mode out there, thinking about nappies. I wasn’t really in the zone.”

When quizzed about George, he said the little prince, who was born on July 22, “likes to move around a lot. He wriggles a lot. He keeps us on our toes.”

The polo outing was William’s first public appearance since the birth of his son captured the world’s attention.

Kate and the baby were not in attendance.
