Read the rest here: Prince William by Penny Junor: review - Telegraph
I agree with the last part of the last sentence 'he makes a difficult subject for a biography, he’ll make a good king'. I think on the big scheme of things, William is relatively 'quiet' and doesn't do anything too 'outrageous', which is exactly how he needs to be. He concentrates on his work as a SAR pilot, and does royal engagements when he can. It may make him appear boring to some, but I see that as a sign of maturity and steadfastness. He strikes me as a very private and introverted individual, who may internalize a great deal. His mother called him 'a deep thinker' at one point, and I think she hit the nail on the head. This is a man who most likely enjoys contemplation and some 'alone' time to just gather his thoughts and emotions.

Ya I agree. In a strange way I like sorta the mysteriousness of William. I like the fact he keeps us guessing.Sometimes it's great to know alot about people but I think some things need to be kept private, for logical reasons and because that way it makes it more fun, if you get what I mean.

There are tweets (Mark Stewart) that Kate has taken Lupo to see William and Harry play polo. Can anyone find photos? (I'm not very good at that sort of thing)

Thanks.

I'm surprised she went with a floaty dress. I'm not sure about England, but in Northern Ireland it's been extremely windy, particularly for the time of year.

Thanks for tracking those photos down Florencia.

I wonder if we'll see any professional shots from this event.

Windy as anything today, I had trouble driving to work. It has been quite sunny though.

Same here, Lumutqueen. My 18 month old niece stepped out our back door earlier and was immediately blown back in again. She didn't understand what had happened.

Duchess of Cambridge breezes onto the polo pitch as young Royals show their competitive side during charity fundraiser in Ascot
Quote:
As the sun came out today the Duchess of Cambridge opted for a light silk shift as she watched her husband on the polo field. Teamed with a pair of towering open-toe wedges the ensemble proved a little impractical as the winds began to pick up. Kate was seen dashing across the grassy grounds in Ascot struggling to keep to maintain her modesty as the £290.00 dress caught the breeze.
Some really lovely pictures in the article, but this one of Harry and Lupo is my favourite.
Anyone who's so natural with babies and animals has to be a very good man indeed.
