I understand some members are fascinated by Facebook, but as it was a hoax and didn't have anything to do with William, we should let the subject drop.

thanks,

I'll hope the writer just lacked the writing skills to correctly describe this squadron D.
They are soldiers recovering from injuries and those who would be leaving within the tour dates. They are well thought of and working with a purpose to their lives, continuing to train, trying to get fit to return to active duty and people who have already risked life and limb who are preparing to leave and take on the challenge of civilian life, certainly not misfits!

Thanks for clarifying that. I didn't really think they were misfits. I just thought that the description in the newspaper was poorly worded. I think the idea of the writer was to make it look like William and now Harry were at the bottom by being with that group. Glad to know D squadron actually is well thought of.

On another note, I happened to be watching television this morning (somerthing other than a children's show) and saw that the announced interview of William and Harry done by NBC would be shown in the US during June on the evening Dateline NBC show, with part of it on their morning show.

William is becoming more of a humanitarian every day, just like his mother.

Didn't he play tennis when his mom was alive (with her) and do some rowing and football (soccer) or something like that while at school too?

Prince William was shown in the broadcast from Wembley Stadium a short time ago meeting the players and officials in the FA Cup Final.

William must have been thrilled to meet the players, he loves the game so much.

I think that's a bit of an overstatement. He appears to be happy, but I wouldn't say he's having "the time of his life".

A couple of new articles.

The first is about William at Wembley.

The Sun Online - News: Wembley's wow factor

The second is about a party William and Harry apparently are planning right after the Diana concert.

It's too bad that people keep interfering and critizing everything they have tried to do--the concert, the memorial, now the party. If this is what they wanted to do for their mother, let them do what they want.

I also think that it isn't fitting and agree with what the "Palace" supposedly said, of course, according to the press. I think once the Wembley thing is done, it's time to head home and unwind there keeping Diana's memory in the forefront instead of a bottle of champagne or other spirits .
