I think this has less to do with William's career and more to do with the re-design of the PoW's website. I was one (of probably thousands) who responded to the PoW's survey to make improvements to the website several months ago. I can't speak for others, but I requested more photos and more insight into their day-to-day lives. I think this is a direct result of such feedback and I commend them for giving us this glimpse of William's life. Personally, I think the website has gone a little too heavy on the photos....but we got what we asked for!

I too requested the website should give the media and public more insight into the royals lives and their work. I also think the Official Monarchy site should do the same.

Well, now we know why the pics I saw in the press and the pics on the POC site did not match. I caught them in the middle of sorting out the SNAFU.

Shows to go ya just how easily something can be given away these days by a haphazard photo. It was very easy probably to overlook that there may have been sensitive information in the background. To be honest, I would never have thought about it looking at the pics.

How on earth did an RAF photographer not realise that taking pictures that showed usernames and passwords of staff in the background might not have been the best idea?

Sometimes you just have to laugh at the Daily Mail, though. On their article about the photos they described William as '2nd in line to the thrown', which even by the DM's almost non-existent standards is a new low as regards their staff's literacy capabilities.

Isn't he though? First in line to the thrown is Charles. Second in line is William. Or am I missing something?

The correct word is "throne" not thrown which reflects on the DMs writers and editors.

At least it didn't say 'second in line to BE thrown.'

Not sure what's worse when it comes to the wrong word, but sounds the same so must be right, but it's not category...

What the DM posted about William and the "thrown" or the three articles in various online publications I saw this week about the Duke and "Dutchess" of Cambridge.

Sadly, I'm not kidding about that.

Sigh...How in the name of all Holy did that RAF Photographer *not* catch that? *groan*

The telegraph article about William returning to the Blues and Royals is from the gossip writer Mandrake not the a news reporter so I don't know how true it is.

IMO, it does not make sense for William go back to the his old army job. What is going to do there ? It is the same problem he had before, we was a tank commander but he couldn't go to Afghanstan with his men. That is why he switched to the RAF where he could do something usefull but not be in a warzone.

Harry (also in the Blues & Royals) even had to go on attached to the Air Corps to get back to Afghanstan since it was to dangerous for the other troops for him to go back how he did the first time undercover.

William tour in SAR ends in the spring or summer, the KP palace apartment should be done in the summer. Kate maybe pregnant by the summer. However neither the Queen or the DoE are getting any younger. Once Prince Phillip dies, there is no way that William can stay in the military.

Before the wedding there was talk of two years for William & Kate for them to be normal military couple like the Queen & Phillip had in Malta after their marriage before she became Queen. The two years are coming up, I think William will leave the military altogether and become a full time royal in next fall.

Intrepid reporting there lol. Of course they are the 3 options haha.
One thing I know for sure, William will leave the RAF. There is no point having KP renovated for 2013 or the hiring of additional staff if the couple don't plan on moving in for another 3 years.
One way or the other, W&C will be based in London and carrying out royal duties on a consistent basis.
