Prince William appeared at events in Malta over the weekend, substituting for his wife as she struggles with severe morning sickness during her second pregnancy.

Kate Middleton was forced to cancel what would have been her first overseas solo appearance for Queen Elizabeth II because of hyperemesis gravidarum, which is an acute, long-lasting morning sickness.

“She’s very disappointed that she couldn’t be here today,” Parade quoted Prince William as he spoke to the crowd gathered for a 50th anniversary celebration of Malta’s independence. “I’m sorry you’ve got me instead of Catherine.”

When someone asked him Saturday how Middleton was doing, he replied, “So-so,” Parade said.

But on Sunday, the prince told expat Peter Robinson that he spoke with his wife that morning and she was improving, BBC News said.

“He was very happy to be here. William told me that Catherine was sad to have missed the trip but we both agreed that the hot weather would have been too much for her,” Robinson told BBC. “I asked how she was doing and he said he spoke to her this morning, and she was feeling a little better.”

Prince William was a hit on Malta, even without his wife. He played a game of table football (aka foosball) with a couple of teenagers, who were impressed with his skills.

“He's better than me, and he helped us win. He was so, so nice. He said that he would love to spend a summer here," Kayleigh Cioffi, 17, told the BBC.

Prince William and Kate Middleton may be preparing to add another baby to their household, but it sounds like their hands are pretty full with little George, who is 14 months old. When meeting with Malta president Marie Louise Coleiro Preca, he told joked that the country might not “survive baby George,” the New York Daily News said.

Preca said she’d love to see George and the new baby, and Prince William said, “Malta might not survive Prince George. There's too many precious things around here.”
