But most importantly, he needs to remain focused on his duties during this time in his army training. I'm beginning to feel that William is now beginning to know who he is (one day going to be a King) and how much power he has and is beginning to usee it. I've never seen so much drinking, partying and polo playing go on with soldier trainees. If they wanted to play polo, they should have become athletes instead of soldiers. :)

WILLS IS PRINCE OF AISLES

PRINCE William stunned staff and customers in a Tesco store -when he popped in to buy a 1 T-shirt.
He turned up at the shop as Army pals stocked up for barbecue.

He seems to like Tesco.

WILLS TOUGHS IT OUT ON EXERCISE AS CADETS COLLAPSE

Those who believe in the merits of military training often allude to its character-building qualities

http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty...princewilliam/

William and 241 others managed to complete the course, only 2 were taken to hospital and they were released back to Sandhurst after a couple of hours, (having been rehydrated).

To keep getting time off to play a game of polo, means that there may be parts of training that he will miss, possibly containing information he may need if he is going to do his job properly. Men and Women could be relying on him and the decisions he may have to make. How can any of 'his' men or women respect someone who got his pips but, didn't even do the course, that got his rank based solely on who he is?
I think you're right but I think the point may be lost on those not familiar to the military which is a large part of the population.

Does anyone think that Prince William play anymore polo games after July while at Sandhurst?

I don't think he will.
I don't know much about polo, but is polo a year round sport? And, did he play along with Harry at the Cartier polo match? Finally, now that both he and Harry collect a paycheck, I guess they both also get an allowance from their father so they can still play polo as it is an expensive sport to be part of.

These were nothing to do with RMAS (as far as I know) 7/05/06 - Audi Challenge, 28/06/06, 1/07/06 - Charity, 05/07/06.

The Polo game on 15/07/06 was The Rundle Cup and was Sandhurst related.

William started training on the 9th January 2005 so he will pass out in December and I'm sure we will see the same amount of media interest and photo's that Harry got.
