I'm sure William's employers appreciate the unique nature of his other job, but the fact is they have scheduling and staffing concerns and they need to be able to make plans based on the assumption that their pilots will be fully committed for the full length of their terms of service.
I think i've got the date right, but the search and rescue part of the Navy and RAF are due to be privatised next year. William will loose his job and therefore have no choice but to 'become a royal'.

I thought that contract was in douby but I haven't kept track of it.

He is on "secondment" (I don't know the proper term) to the RAF from his army regiment. He has the choice to return to that, although it would probably be a desk job as he won't be allowed to fight.

If SAR is not an option, and there is desk job or royal - think he'd choose royal

UPDATE: was some doubt but now sorted (source Telegraph) all in place by 2016. So technically he could do anpther 3 year stint

All in place by 2016 but things are going to start disappearing before then. William would be doing the right thing by stepping up to real royal duties by the end of this year, his grandparents are not getting any younger and he can see this with his own eyes. This health scare is a sign that both Elizabeth and Philip should slow down. We know Elizabeth isn't going to abdicate but I don't want to see either of them pass too quickly and not have chance to see William grow.

The Duke of Cambridge partners with SkillForce to launch new national community award
Quote:
In a message of support to the charity, The Duke of Cambridge said: “I am immensely proud to put my name to the SkillForce Prince’s Award. It rewards young people who have made an outstanding contribution to their community, encouraging them to go further to nurture their personal, professional or educational development. I would like to personally thank all those who took part in this inaugural phase of the award and I hope many young people will be inspired to take part in the future.”

I'd be surprised if that's Anglesey. More likely to be Cornwall for surfing. The Palace said that William had a 'prior commitment', obviously a day's surfing with his brother.

good for them - I wonder how often they get away with doing this where no one recognizes them.

Good on them! Down time never hurt anyone, and with a life that involves being in the limelight, it's nice to be able to get away and just 'be oneself' for a bit.

perhaps the palace is keeping hush? I'm just thinking maybe William doesn't want them announcing every time he saves someone.
