Prince William is sharing new details about his family life. On June 5, the Prince of Wales visited Portsmouth, England, to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the D-Day Landings. While there, he was asked about his wife, Kate Middleton, and his daughter, Princess Charlotte.

In a video filmed at the anniversary service, a veteran asked William if his wife, the Princess of Wales, was “getting any better” with her medical treatment. (In March, she announced that she’d been diagnosed with cancer.) “Yes,” the Prince replied. “She’d have loved to be here today.”

And according to The Independent, he was introduced to the great-granddaughter of British soldier Captain Alastair Bannerman. “Did you like the Red Arrows?” William asked, before a woman accompanying the youngster said, “I think she was going to ask you where Charlotte was.”

“Charlotte’s at school,” the senior royal said of his daughter, who celebrated her ninth birthday on May 2. “She had tests. She wasn’t looking forward to the school day.” Crossing his fingers, William added, “Hopefully it’s all gone well.”

William also spoke of his daughter in April while stopping by a school in the West Midlands, England. Speaking to students, the future King shared Charlotte’s favorite joke: “Knock Knock,” he said, prompting school students to ask, “Who’s there?” When William replied “Interrupting cow,” the students again asked, “Interrupting cow who?” — to which he replied with the punchline, “Mooo.”
