Prince George accidentally replaced with wombat
There was a ballyhoo in Buckingham Palace this morning when it emerged that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had accidentally left their son, Prince George, in Australia, and the ‘toddler’ they have been carrying around for the past week is actually a wombat.
The royal couple were only alerted to their tragic error when George’s nanny brought him his Sunday lunch and started incessantly screaming. When the guards on duty were sent to investigate, they found a large wombat sat in the Prince’s high chair and eating his pudding.
After accusations of severe child neglect, the royal couple have responded in a press conference.
“It’s not my fault,” insisted Kate Windsor (née Middleton), “George inherited his looks from his father, and to be fair this wombat looks a bit ginger.”
“I thought George was being suspiciously quiet and well behaved these past few days,” said Prince William. “In fact, Kate and I have decided to keep the wombat instead.”
In a landmark constitutional ruling, Her Majesty the Queen agreed, and designated the wombat third in line to the throne. “If the nation can survive the reign of my son Charles, it can certainly survive the reign a furry marsupial. I hereby knight this wombat His Royal Highness, Wallace the Wombat, Baron of Slough and Viscount Hemel Hempstead.”
After an extensive manhunt by AIS and MI6 operatives, the real Prince George was located crawling around in the bush outside Brisbane, where he had been adopted by a family of dingoes.
