Now that Prince William has conquered fatherhood, he certainly isn't afraid of another challenge.

The 31-year-old royal took the stage at an agricultural festival in his current home of Anglesey, Wales, on Wednesday and attempted to speak the island's native language. While his Welsh was far from perfect, his jubilant audience didn't seem to mind that he stumbled over the words as soon as he mentioned his baby, George, who was born on July 22.

The Duke of Cambridge, who attended the event without his wife, Kate Middleton, told the crowd, "Catherine is sorry she cannot be here today… but she and George would have loved to have been here. "

"He's pretty loud and extremely good-looking," the wisecracking Prince quipped to a bevy of cheers. "I have to say that I thought search and rescue duties over Snowdonia were physically and mentally demanding, but looking after a three-week-old baby is right up there."

William, who is a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot for the Royal Air Force, has been on active military duty in the tiny coastal community since 2010. He and his wife moved to a small cottage in Anglesey shortly after their April 2011 wedding.

In his speech, the Prince thanked the community for welcoming his family, calling the town a "very special place" for he and the Duchess of Cambridge. "Catherine and I look forward to returning, again and again, over the coming years with our family.

Prince William's stint with the Royal Air Force will conclude next month and the heir to the throne and his family are expected to move into Anmer Hall, located on Queen Elizabeth II's Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. The trio will remain in the country digs until the renovations at their primary residence at Kensington Palace are completed.

While his time in the Welsh town is coming to an end, we bet the locals will welcome the entire royal brood back with open arms (even if he can't keep up with the lingo!).
