So father, so son...
The Duke of Cambridge has the same eh... "problem"... which is the mumbling of words when he has to formulate his own sentences.
When the Prince of Wales or his son have to read a speech: no problem. It is the thinking, the construction of corrrect sentences and the precaution with words which makes then mumbling, I think. When they speak, their brains are cracking, avoiding stupid words, avoiding sins against grammar and avoid traps and loopholes...
The Prince of Monaco has a stutter in French, when he has to speak and respond actively on questions. Reading a speech again is no problem. The Crown Prince of Denmark is often criticized for sloppy articulation, swallowing syllabes. He seems to have improved the latest years though.
