PRINCE Wil­liam will have his own pair of budgy smug­glers by Christ­mas, with Kurt­ley Beale cer­tain the play­ful gift would suit the In­sta­gram photo which has stirred a world­wide re­ac­tion.

Amer­i­can bas­ket­ball icon Shaquille O’Neal joined the lark by su­per­im­pos­ing his head on Beale’s near-naked body be­side the Prince as a fresh post to his own le­gion of 6.5 mil­lion fol­low­ers.

Beale lapped up his sud­den friend­ship with the four-time NBA cham­pion-turned-com­men­ta­tor: “Look­ing good big boy ... must be do­ing the same ab work­out.”

The feel-good mo­ments on In­sta­gram have stemmed from the Prince meet­ing the Wal­la­bies in their Cardiff dress­in­groom last week­end af­ter the 29-21 vic­tory over Wales.

Beale said Wil­liam was a good sport and he felt hon­oured meet­ing the pa­tron of the Welsh Rugby Union. JIM TUCKER
