Kate Middleton Prince George

D'oh! After making a perfectly harmless comment about her baby, the Duchess of Cambridge may wind up with thoughts of "insert foot in mouth" running through her head. She gets criticized for practically everything these days, from taking a vacation alone with Prince William to committing a major car seat faux pas.

And now Kate Middleton went and called Prince George fat. You know somebody is going to have something to say about it.

Ok, so she didn't come right out and say, "My baby is fat ..." but she did use that particular word.

It happened while she and Wills were visiting with students from the National Indigenous Training Academy in the Northern Territory in Australia. One of the students asked her whether or not she was missing Prince George since he'd been left behind with his nanny. And that's when Kate said, "He's been changing so much while we've been away."

Totally innocent. I know. But then she laughed and added that "he grew an extra fat roll."

(Oh, Kate.)

Aww. Little Georgie-Porgie isn't so little anymore. But is there anything cuter than a chubby baby?!? Who else finds it very endearing that George has a little meat on his bones?

I know Kate was simply being cheeky (isn't that what they call it across the pond?) and the comment wasn't meant to be anything but a joke. Still, using "fat roll" to describe a baby could possibly be seen as a bit demeaning. I mean, I totally get where she was going with it and I find her words rather cute, but you know there are people who will take what she said out of context.

Sigh. Even if you're the most famous mother in the world, you still can't do anything right.

Do you find Kate's words about George offensive?
