I think it's because of his big smile where his mouth is open so wide. I think his better pictures are taken without showing a lot of teeth. Harry has a better mouth for showing the teeth than William's. Then there is the haircut that I think creates an illusion of a much larger head, but then again he MAY have a longer head than rounder.

I just saw the same pic of William holding a baby on Good Morning America. Actually it was tv footage and I must say that he looked marvelous.

You're right. His mouth was in motion on this picture.

That's the same footage I saw on Good Morning America. I have to side with the Ministry of Defence on their stance though.

Why was this fact announced so much before he finishs Sandhurst whereas with Harry it was just within his last month of training at Sandhurst?

That is a little strange. Perhaps they wanted to make his itinerary known to the public well before his passing out of Sandhurst because he will be taking on more public duties?

As a matter of fact, I wonder if Prince William took those vacations this year because he knew the year would end with his public duties and royal appearances being increased?

That's what I would guess. Puts paid to the people who kept calling him lazy.

Well, no it doesn't actually. I still haven't seen any work. I don't call bayoneting hay-filled sacks and visiting one hospital a glittering career or a heavy workload. Then again, he'll never have my approval so he might as well do what he likes!

William looks so sweet with the baby!

Yeah, his head looks big probably because of his current haircut.. with his previous haircut, he looked fine.

Yeah, you're right. When I think "lazy hazy days of summer" I think "Army training." Sheesh.

Someone else who has clearly suffered at the hands of the instructors! Still I suppose marches wearing a full pack, grubbing down on exercises, cleaning your boots, rifles etc is a walk in the park to some!

Going through this training is definitely making Prince William pay his dues in preparation for the greater demands & expectations he will have to endure as future heir to the throne. IMO.

It's the discipline that he learnt from those army training days that he will hopefully not forget and bring to the throne.

Prince tramps 8 miles with a 66lb pack as colleagues drop out

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/liv...n_page_id=1770

Quote:
If Prince William thought things were going to get easier as he nears the end of his Army officers' course at Sandhurst, he was sadly mistaken.
The 24-year-old was left gasping for breath and soaked in sweat as he took part in an eight-mile endurance test.
But he fared far better than some of the other 30 officer cadets, who had to be pulled out of the gruelling manoeuvre. William and the rest of his platoon tramped through woods in Camberley, Surrey, each carrying an SA 80 rifle and a backpack weighing 66lb - more than four stone.
A source said: "The packs weigh as much as a small child but this time next year these men could be leading their troops out to battle and it's crucial that they are supremely fit and at the top of their game."
There's a picture at the link!

Good for Prince William! It's nice to see him putting forth the effort. Of course all of the other young men work just as hard, but it's nice that he's able to keep up and hold up his end of the bargain.
I think if we keep watching him we'll all end up being pleasantly surprised and pleased with the man he will eventually become.

Totally agree with you, TonyaR. I've always felt that Harry was a natural soldier. Tough and full of grit; whereas, William a little softer and more brainy. I'm glad to see him tough his soldiering out.
