With William beginning his training in Dorset I wonder if we will soon see him and Kate partying in Bournemouth like Harry did when he was here.

Oh, it would be wonderful to see those two partying. And why shouldn't they? They are SO busy, going to rugby matches, going to clubs, and then, of course, killing things on Granny's estate. Let's not forget that Kate is so hard working. Hmmmm.......

An attempt at sarcasm, Lord of Cowley?

Well I eat enjoy a good brace of quail so if Wills and Kate kill a brace of quail on Granny's estate and invite me to dinner, I won't pass up the invitation. (not that they will invite me-too bad, I hear the Queen employs an excellent chef)

As to hard working or not, I really don't care. This never ending attempt to bring the royals down to our level is increasingly annoying. No, royals aren't like us, and I don't expect them to be. If they were, there would be no point in having royals.

I do agree with you that there would be no point in having royals around if they were like us. To me, the royal family represents the survival over years and years of Great Britain (including Canada, Australia, etc.) itself (God bless it) through all sorts of hardships, and it has survived them all, so in a way, it's "comforting" to me to have the monarchy around. I say, if you don't like the royal family and/or you don't like having them be your monarchs for whatever your reasons, move somewhere where they are not the monarchs rather than try to get rid of them. I wouldn't think most people would want to get rid of the monarchy. It's not like they're dictators or that they actually run the country anymore, and they actually help the British economy, especially in the tourism sector, if you think about it.

Prince William Says "Too Tired" To Attend Welsh Rugby Vs. England--All Headline News

When will there any new pictures of William or articles about something other than his not going to Wales vs England rugby match or whatever?

This is one of a handful of great examples of things not to envy about the royal family. Every little action - going to a rugby match, or not going -- is analyzed and the press will talk about the "controversies" being stirred up by showing too much favortism to a group or to one organization while ignoring other patronages. I would say that I wish the press would ease up and stop criticizing them so excessively, but they've been doing it so long, and part of me thinks it just goes with the territory. When you have such a position as representing entire groups, organizations, and a whole nation, you just have to be totally PC all the time, even in private because private discussions, as we have seen with Prince William among others, can and are leaked on occasion. I always wonder who the anonymous friends are in these articles, if they are the best friends like Guy Pelly or just sort of marginal members of the Highgrove set.

I think William is a good person, if he sometimes behaves a little selfishly (he does, but I do too, many people do at times). In summary, I do see many areas where he might improve, but I'm confident that he will learn to curb some of these youthful, sometimes hedonistic ways in good time. I think it might even be good that he is doing some of his selfish things: maybe he will burn himself out on Boujis parties that he will wake up one day and decide never to go again! I hope for that. I understand young people wanting to party at clubs and socialize and dress up and everything. All that is fun, but the way the 'young aristo's' go about it at these private clubs is so excessive. Why can't they just drink without getting drunk? And why is it necessary to fog the place up with cigarette smoke? It can't be doing any service to the princes' longterm health. I've seen so many people have nasty effects from over-drinking and inhaling smoke all the time: they age so quickly, get bad skin. I just wish more moderation for the princes. That's all. The sooner they can burn it out of their systems, well it won't be a minute too soon for me.

He was out at Elements? Definitely not where I expected him to go. It didn't take him long to make his way down here. I expect we'll be seeing a bit more of him over the next few weeks.

Wills: Why Don't You Come Back To My Palace?

SundayMirror.co.uk - News - News - HE WAS TOUCHY FEELY & QUITE P****D AS WE DANCED

HE WAS TOUCHY FEELY & QUITE P****D AS WE DANCED
WILLS: WHY DON'T YOU COME BACK TO MY PALACE? OFF HIS HEIR-D .. and he didn't mention Kate once!
By Nikhita Mahajan

A BLONDE student told yesterday how Prince William took her back to his barracks after they had dirty danced in a nightclub in front of astonished revellers.
Boozed-up William, who was downing pints of Stella Artois and shots of sambuca, spotted pretty Lisa Agar, 19, in the Elements nightclub in Bournemouth, Dorset, early on Friday.

Walkabout bar
drinking
Elements
four shots of sambuca
six Stella's (pints of Beer)
Dancing
than more drinks
back at the officers mess one more beer (pint?)
The picture looked posed to me.
That is an awful lot of Alcohol even for a young man who is 6 ft 3in tall and maybe around 180 or 190. Would they have even allowed this girl on base since she had no legit reason for being there even if William had invited her?
Does anyone wonder about that?

It depends entirely on the alert at the base and country wide. The majority of barracks and houses are not on the actual base, but on an estate nearby!
