Thank you. This is amusing. Would love to know the questions that were asked/chosen.

I didn't catch all of it, but I remember one answer was about the wing on his wedding day uniform. :)

What is RAF, of course.

I checked my twitter, and the person who posted about the category listed some other questions too. I think one was about the venue where him and Catherine got married (Westminster Abbey), and the other one dealt with the town that William and Catherine were now Duke and Duchess of (Cambridge). Fun stuff.

A bit of a blast from the past. Another video dealing with the opening of the Oak Centre last week.

I'm sorry I missed that Jeopardy show. I'm sure a good portion of the questions would have stumped many a viewer other than us royal followers!

Oh, there's no doubt about that. My grandmother loves asking me about William and Catherine, but the funny thing is, she asks in such a way that it sounds as if I'm acquainted with them personally. I know she's worried about my lack of socializing opportunities, but this is taking it a little too far (even if it is very amusing ).

Aw, tell your grandma not to worry - you socialize well enough with all of us fanatics here on the forum! I get that reaction too from my coworkers - they're interested in the goings-on of Will and Kate, but look at me quite bemused at my enthusiasm when I go into detail!!

I get that reaction too ladies - whenever I go into detail about Princess Di! I am just thankful that there is a forum full of other royal fanatics!

For that very reason m'dear, . Anyway, enough thread-napping on my part.

#royal #william #kate The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge attended an event last night which helped raise £675,000 for Child Bereavement Charity
#royal #william #kate 100 Women in Hedge Funds held gala at St James' Palace. William is patron of both 100WHF and Child Bereavement Charity
#royal #william #kate for details later about last night's event, and for more info about the great work they do, follow @cbchelp

SkyNewsRoyal Paul Harrison



#royal #william #kate 100WHF is focuing for a year each on 3 of William's Patronages: Centrepoint 2010, @cbchelp 2011, Skill Force in 2012.


I asked him if we'll get any pix later on let's see what his reply is....
I know it hasn't been that long but it feels like forever since we've gotten new pix guess we were just spoiled rotten during the NA tour so now it seems weird. Haven't been here in a while I've missed this place!

I always feel a special sense of poignancy when William attends an event in support of the CBC. The cause must be close to his heart- such is the case when one can relate to the cause due to personal life experience. That charity has an ideal Patron- nobody could do better!

I agree with you. I read his speech that Marika86 kindly posted, and it spoke volumes about his passion for this cause. He understands the grief of losing a close family member (a parent nonetheless) and can provide strength and support to families who are dealing with the same sorrow.
