Prince William's Paternity Leave Breaks Royal Tradition

Posted: Updated:
LONDON -

Prince William is taking a two-week paternity leave to enjoy time with his new son George and wife Kate.

He's the first senior member of the royal family to take a paid paternity leave.

William is a search and rescue helicopter pilot for the Royal Air Force.

Although his pay only amounts to $210 dollars a week, many on social media say that he's setting a precedent for British dads.

That's because only two-thirds of men reportedly take some paternity leave and fewer than half take a full two weeks.
