Prince William Talks Prince George's Naughtiness To Disappointed Locals Expecting Kate Middleton

Prince William has revealed that Prince George has been rather naughty over the last few months.

The Prince made the remarks during a trip to Malta by himself after his wife, The Duchess Of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, was forced to pull out due to the morning sickness that has left her in pain over the last few weeks. While in the country, William was asked about his son, George, by Marie Louis Coleiro Preca, the president of Malta. Preca declared that she wanted the royal baby to join the duo on their next visit, but William dismissed this request with a joke that revealed George has been rather naughty recently.

William declared that Malta wouldn't be able to "survive" the royal baby if he was around -- because there are "too many precious things around here." It's quite clear from William's remarks that he was referring to the infant's prevalence for throwing around things that don't belong to him. However, William wasn't totally disparaging about his son, and he insisted that he had "grown up a lot" and was now a "strong boy."

During the trip, William was also forced to confront a host of disappointed faces who had expected to see his 32-year-old wife on the trip instead of him. The locals were allegedly hugely upset that she had cancelled, and People magazine even reported that William just isn't as famous as Kate in Malta.

One inhabitant of the island even told the publication, "A lot of the locals I have spoken to have said: 'Who's William?" I think they would have preferred to have seen Kate."

As The Inquisitr previously reported, Middleton is still struggling with the effects of Hyperemesis Gravidarum, with an official statement from the palace adding further details regarding her current plight.

"Her Royal Highness continues to suffer from the effects of Hyperemesis Gravidarum. The decision not to visit was taken by the Duke and Duchess on the advice of the Duchess's doctors."
Meanwhile, Malta's president only had positive comments for the royal family and Britain, despite Middleton's absence.
"We respect the British Royal Family. We consider the British people as our friends, not simply our ex-colonisers so we consider the royal family as friends of Malta. [Kate is] doing well obviously in the circumstances. I also told his royal highness that we look forward to welcoming all his family including baby George and including the new baby."
