Prince William had the sweetest reaction to the moment a baby bit his finger as he met royal fans in Singapore. 

We've always known the Prince of Wales to be incredible with children. He is, of course, great with his own kids, as he is always making efforts to spend quality time with them. In fact, just a few weeks ago, the Prince was seen with Prince George at the Rugby World Cup, having a truly adorable mini-me moment as they cheered on Wales together in the quarter-final leg.

And even just a few days ago, the future King, who is first in the line of succession, had a hilarious moment when a young schoolchild guessed his age during a visit to Scotland, and was rather shocked to hear the child's answer, which was 57. 

This week, Prince William has been visiting Singapore for the annual Earthshot Prize Awards Ceremony, and as expected, he has been out and about meeting with the public, as well as the country's leaders. On 5 November, when William was at one of the Changi Airport’s passenger terminals to visit a nature-themed entertainment and retail complex called Jewel, he had a super adorable encounter with a baby that we just can't get over.

With an introduction from the Prince of Wales himself, this book delves into each of the significant Earthshot goals, ranging from protecting and restoring nature to helping to build a waste-free world. It explored how these can help to tackle the environmental crisis.

The baby, named Albane Costa, was seen grabbing Prince William's finger in a video posted to X by user Liza Dicoy. In the video, you can see Prince William telling the parents of the child that the baby is "very sweet".

"How's he sleeping? Is he sleeping okay? Good," William also graciously asked them. 

Then, as babies often do, the young boy tried to put the royal's finger into his mouth, but William had the sweetest and most incredible response. He said with a laugh, "I need my finger. I need my finger back!" The level of adorable vibes in this video truly is on overload. 

Prince William isn't the only royal, however, who loves to be around young children - even Kate has shared in the past that being around babies makes her quite emotional and ready to "have another one."

"It makes me very broody," Kate said at the Copenhagen Infant Mental Health Project in 2022. "William always worries about me meeting under 1-year-olds. I come home saying, 'Let's have another one.'" And honestly, we couldn't blame her, especially when you have kids as cute as Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
