I really like seeing this side of William. The Sandhurst photos contrast sharply and nicely with the polo photos!

polo pics

Here are some polo pics from Rex (July 1st and July 5th pics). I hope the watermarks don't bother you. I get nervous about these image hosting sites coming after me for hosting copyright pics. I try to cover my ducks, so to speak. Hopefully no one takes offense.

Yeah, the military cut obscures the hair-loss realities, but it's hard to believe, even seeing it with my own two eyes, how pale he is!! After that holiday in Barbados and everything! Why is he so pale?

Hillaaaarious Roslyn! It's really good idea, but I don't know, if Kate'll look so good on horse like William.

Here in Germany after the initial 6 weeks of basic trainung young soldiers who are excellent sportsmen are allowed to do sports training and attend tournaments and sports events as part of their military training. We even have our own regiment for that. You can see eg these men on horse riding events eg. dressage events because they wear their uniform then instead of the required dress coat the other riders wear.

Maybe it's the same in the UK and polo is considered a sport which should be supported that way? IIRC, polo has been an traditional sport for officers so I guess it could be for that reason he is allowed to attend while training to be an officer.

P.S. I found this information at the hompage of the official organisation for polo in the Uk, the Hurlingham polo association about how polo came to be a sport played in the UK:

1869. Edward "Chicken" Hartopp, 10th Hussars, read an account of the game in The Field, while stationed at Aldershot, and, with brother officers, organised the first game - known then as "hockey on horseback"- on a hastily-rolled Hounslow Heath against The 9th Lancers. The 1st Life Guards and the Royal Horse Guards were quick to follow suit on grounds at Hounslow and in Richmond Park; and then on a small ground near Earl's Court known as Lillie Bridge.

It is the same here in the UK, although it is 'unusual' for anyone in training to be allowed to go off on 'a jolly' but, he is 2nd in line and we should not expect him to be treated as a normal Officer Cadet.

Well, that's true if there's some royal event going on where his presence is required, but I hope we're past the days when a senior royal can just turn his back on military training in order to go off and indulge in some hobby or other.

I'm afraid it seems we are not past those days. Trainee officers are not normally allowed time off during the term, except for death bed vigils, severe family illness and funerals. :(

Once he has passed out, he can join any number of army teams (football, rugby, polo, showjumping, to name a few) and get time off to attend, unless he is on active service (bit hard to get home from Afghanistan to play a match).

So what you are saying ,Skydragon, is that he hould not get off for the mid-week matches or are you sayin rhat he should not even be allowed to play in Polo matches on the weekend?

same here!
she should be more active in her life instead of going to all of William's things. I'm not saying she shouldn't support William but it'd be just as interesting watching her play polo!
