PRINCE William only asked a New Zealand woman to make another baby shawl because the first one was so shit.
The remark, widely misinterpreted as suggesting another Royal baby is due, was apparently a reflex reaction to the low quality of the homemade item.
William explained: If youre wrapping a baby in something, it needs to be effective in catching the ordure continually pouring out of it, and capable of surviving a boil-wash afterwards.
This thing was full of holes, made out of some fancy dry-clean-only wool and practically unravelling in my hands. At best it might do as an emergency chunder rag.
My mistake was being too polite. I should have ground the shawl contemptuously into the dirt.
