He might be in trouble for this comment …

During a visit to Centrepoint, a charity for homeless youth in the U.K., Prince William joked a hairdresser in training should try working on his wife’s “nightmare” hair.

Ouch.

British media have pointed out the “nightmare” may be that the Duchess of Cambridge’s hair gets “frizzy” in humid weather.

He also talked to a young woman who just got a construction job about his trip to NYC and meeting Jay-Z, and apparently ate some sweets as the charity tweeted the hashtag #whoateallthechocolate following Wills’ informal visit to the charity (media was not invited).

New photos of Prince George have been released and, well, he looks like a mischievous little boy, doesn’t he?

I have no doubt from the glint in his eye and his smile that he gives his parents and caregivers a run for their money. He is, no doubt, a little royal terror.

But darn it if he isn’t cute as a button.

Graffiti showing a naked and pregnant Duchess of Cambridge has sprung up on a wall in London and is the work of American graffiti artist Pegasus.

The image, which shows a small crown resting on her belly, also includes the words Game of Thrones.

The graffiti showed up Nov. 26 ahead of a trip by Catherine and Prince William to the U.S. early next month. The couple will be travelling to New York City for three days, Dec. 7-9. They’ll take in an NBA game, attend a black tie fundraiser and will visit inner city youth shelters, along with see a few sites.

Prince George is not expected to join them.

The couple has also been invited to China in early 2015, although it is expected Prince William will make this trip alone as Kate will be around five months pregnant.

“Elizabeth R.” has sent her first tweet.

“It is a pleasure to open the Information Age exhibition today at the @sciencemuseum and I hope people will enjoy visiting,” the tweet through the British Monarchy’s account said. It was signed, “Elizabeth R.”

Daily Mail royal correspondent Rebecca English said the messages was already typed out for the Queen, she just had to hit send.

The Queen was the first monarch to send an e-mail all the way back in 1976. She sent it from an army base, the BBC reported.

She was also involved in setting up the British Monarchy’s YouTube account, and it has been reported she has an iPad.
