How is it that they know that his platoon is the best when the Cyprus exercises has just began? Don't they use the scores obtained used for figuring that out?
I wish someone would tell them that the choice of who leads the parade is basically a lottery and it seems Williams platoon lost! Practising to lead the parade does however start half way through the 3rd term!

Goodness me. Who are these supposed to be again? Why doesn't Madame Tussauds just give up? I went to see the waxwork of the Queen Mother - it looked like Ronnie Corbett in drag.

Well, that's supposed to be Prince William. Though I only recognized him because of the caption. The close ups are simply terrible!
From a distance they seem to be ok looking.

Prince William has been picked to lead the famous passing out parade in front of the Queen next month, The Sun can reveal.

I think this has more to do with who he is rather than what he's done.

The wax replicas of Harry and William look like something from Spitting Image (especially Harry).

I've never been too mucha a Tussauds fan. I find the likenesses of many of their sculptures a little stretched. I guess the fame is in the carving of the wax and what it takes to carve out the faces etc.

We may get some pictures of the training in Cyprus or of the cadets practising for the sovereigns parade, if not I expect the next official ones will be at the passing out parade.

Prince William to become a British officer

Prince William, along with 220 other Sandhurst Royal Military Academy cadets, is being toughened in Cyprus before earning his pips as an officer, British army officials said.
William, 24, like his younger brother Prince Harry before him, is taking part in field exercise "winter victory" the final test in soldiering cadets must endure before passing out from the prestigious academy.

Until he gets his commission he has to salute Harry.

After he receives his commission, they are equal rank and would not normally salute one another, unless they are handing a watch over, (not the ticking kind).

William will be a 2nd Lieutenant.
