We lift the lid on some of the stories our Royals would rather forget

Prince William‘s early life remains something of a mystery to many Royal fans.

But Penny Junor’s new book Prince William: Born To Be King sheds new light on the effect of his parents’ marriage breakdown on the young Prince William.

The royal correspondent – and friend of Prince Charles – reveals that Wills, 29, though mature and responsible now, was rather naughty as a youngster. 

Young Wills was dubbed ‘Billy the basher‘ at nursery, whilePrincess Diana called him ‘your Royal naughtiness‘.

Even the Queen made it known his behaviour was ‘not acceptable’.

Aged four, he was snapped sticking his tongue out at cousin Laura Fellowes at Prince Andrew’s wedding.
