Prince William may be getting coal in his stocking when Father Christmas visits Kensington Palace on Christmas Eve. That’s because the prince publicly made a wisecrack about his wife’s appearance, telling a group of soldiers that she resembles a Christmas tree, Fox News is reporting. And though it’s unlikely to make much difference, he wasn’t making a joke about her weight.
The future King of England and his wife were on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus on Wednesday — meeting with soldiers stationed at Royal Air Force Base Akrotiri — when William noticed that the soldiers had put up a Christmas tree. The color of the tree apparently matched that of the olive-green blazer the Duchess of Cambridge was wearing, and William took that as an opportunity to crack wise.
“My wife’s camouflaged against the tree… Do you want me to move out of the photo?”
