Prince George did not throw a tantrum over having to wear shorts, despite a made-up report. Gossip Cop can set the record straight on this latest piece of fiction. We’re told it’s “nonsense.”

According to the National Enquirer, which routinely publishes ridiculous stories about the royal family, “pouty” Prince George keeps “nagging” his parents to wear long, “grown-up” trousers. In the bogus article, a so-called “royal spy” is quoted as saying, “This toddler’s tired of being told he has to wear shorts until he starts going to older boys’ school because it’s a long-standing royal custom.”

The outlet’s seemingly non-existent insider goes on to claim that the young royal angrily shouted, “Shorts are goofy, silly and dumb! I want pants like Daddy!” And in terribly strange language, the tabloid’s supposed source further contends that Prince George went on to yell, “I’m going to be king one day, and a king should not wear goofy shorts!”

But, if it wasn’t already obvious, the entirety of the Enquirer’s report is made-up. Remember, this is the same magazine Gossip Cop busted in April for wrongly claiming Prince George gave the Queen a drawing of a unicorn with a genitals-shaped horn on its head, complete with a doctored photo of the child. That wasn’t true, and not surprisingly, the same goes for this latest fabrication.

An actual royal source assures Gossip Cop the story about Prince George throwing a tantrum over having to wear shorts is utter “nonsense” and “never happened.” Not only are the quotes entirely fake, but the report itself is simply ludicrous. And while it’s tradition among the royals to dress the younger generation in shorts, the eldest child of Prince William and Kate Middleton certainly didn’t object to wearing them. Once again, the supermarket tabloid fabricated yet another royally bogus story.
