He’s not Kate Middleton…but he’ll have to do! Prince William traveled to Malta over the weekend in place of his wife, who was unable to attend the previously scheduled two-day event because of morning sickness.
“I’m sorry you’ve got me instead of Catherine,” he joked to the crowd. “She’s very disappointed she couldn’t be here today.” When an attendee asked how the Duchess was feeling, her William responded, “She’s so-so.”
The Royal Couple recently announced they’re expecting their second child, but that Kate is once again suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum, or severe morning sickness. The trip to Malta would have been the 32-year-old’s first solo appearance overseas.
