An insight into youth mental health services: ‘I was suicidal. I needed help’ | Society | The Guardian

More about Nikki Mattocks who was featured in the Daily Mirror article posted above. IMHO she is very courageous to share her story with the public about her illness and treatment.

The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge will return to Royal Air Force Valley on Feb 18 to attend the Search and Rescue Force Disbandment Parade.

Rebecca English ‏@RE_DailyMail
The service honours the end of more than 75 years of Royal Air Force (RAF) SAR UK operations. William, of course, a former SAR pilot

Very nice. This will be William's version of watching the HMY Britannia decommissioned.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will return to Anglesey next week to see the formal end of search and rescue operations at RAF Valley.

The couple will visit the base to attend the Search and Rescue (SAR) Force Disbandment Parade on February 18, which will honour the end of more than 75 years of RAF SAR UK operations.

Events will commemorate the RAF SAR Force’s exemplary service since its inception, and enable SAR members and their families to pay tribute to the Force’s achievements.

The Duke and Duchess lived on Anglesey for three years when Prince William, as Flight Lieutenant Wales, was an SAR pilot flying the now-retired Sea King helicopter.

During this time, HRH undertook 156 operations and rescued 149 people.

A Right Royal Farewell

I notice that Richard Palmer is unhappy again

"Kensington Palace's growing attempt to restrict media to a tiny number means most of the royal press pack won't be with Will and Kate today."

But why would the palace want to restrict media members even more?

IMHO I don't think they (KP) are doing it deliberately, I think it's just a case of logistics with a lot of these things and then RP throws his toys out of the pram and makes it out to be that KP are being anti-media.

But this is not the first time the media complain about the matter... And it hasn't been only Palmer as far as I know!

I kind of don't get why they're complaining though. It would be one thing if the photographers there get an exclusive. But isn't all pictures shared with the PA in the case of few reporters? And they allow some local papers to report instead which sounds like supporting local news sources.

Palmer was also hinting on Twitter yesterday that he has a big royal story coming out soon. I imagine it's a lot of hot air.

Mark Cuthbert called him out on it on Twitter. Made me laugh.

Richard has been one of the biggest disappoinments. He used to be so reliable and I used to take his critique seriously as he came across as unbiased. That has changed over the passed few years.

He himself said they were told the hanger where the event was didnt have enough space to house the media. This was a very important day for RAF members & their families, thus they were rightly given priority to space.

Dont get me wrong, the KP press office needs to work on their media relations but the media for some weird reason choose to make noise on restrictions that seem to make sense and keep quite on the other times when they are justified to complain


It was an end of an important era for the RAF, the people who worked there deserved the space, not the media

This was an engagement as a royal, rather than as a member of the RAF

He still is, just not active service. Like other senior royals, he holds a rank in several armed forces. He also holds ranks in the navy and is a regular commissioned member of the blues and royals.

He was promoted last month from flight lieutenant to squadron leader in the RAF so I find it even odder he wouldn't be wearing an uniform.
