If anything, the officer that introduced the Indonesian CoD to William should shoulder the blame in this case. He should have thought about the implications before introducing those people to Prince William.
The MOD is entirely to blame for this incident and knows it. No other Junior Officer would have been introduced to any visitor and as the MOD knew who the visitors were that day, it should not have happened. The OC was probably overruled when he objected to the suggestion that William be appointed Orderly Officer that day and indeed introduced. William was in no way to blame.

It is so much easier to lay the blame at the RF's feet, than at the governments (MOD), where it actually belongs.

PRINCE William is being headhunted to become chief of the legendary SAS force, motto Who Dares Wins.
Senior officers in the crack army regiment have invited the 25-year-old prince to take over as their new Colonel-in-Chief

Prince set to head SAS

I just wondering if Prince William would become a professional soldier if he gets into an area of the military that would give him a passion for it? It is just a thought that I had. His father, Prince Charles will be a hard act to follow.

Why is that Senior officers in SAS want their new Colonel-in-Chief? Just because he is a young royal and Second in line for the throne or because he is good junior officer and has interest in the SAS. What is an equerry? Why use th tern headhunted? I think do some training with them maybe enough to be able to wear the wings.

^ An equerry is like an aide-de-camp (ADC) and is always a military officer who is attached for a certain period to the Royal Household. The equerry usually comes from the Household Cavalry. I have a friend in England who was in the HC in the 90s and he was an equerry assigned to the Duke of Gloucester and his term, I think, was supposed to be three years. Although..... he left their service before that because they "didn't see eye to eye," is all he will say. He is very mature about it, will not say a nasty thing about them, which I admire so much.

Prince William and Prince Harry have an equerry I think. Before he was promoted to their private secretary, Lowther-Pinkerton was their equerry. The statements about William's trip to NZ in 2005 always referred to L-P as his equerry.

Mark Dyer is or was equerry to Prince Charles, though I think now he doubles as an aide for PW and PH.

I wonder if the SAS might suit his personality to do it professionally after the air force and navy in 2008.

He will not be offered a professional (working) position in the SAS, who rely on anonymity.

I think that's the best he's looked in awhile...yes he looks beat but at least he doesn't look so horsey and bald.

And also what kind of exclusive club gives themselves the name Tramp...sounds skanky...LOL

I am not sure where to post this, but it has several questions about Prince William and many other British Royals as well.

Take the quiz from the Daily Mirror and see how you do

WHICH gorgeous daughter of a foreign-born billionaire had a fling last year with Prince William? While their families don't get along, and she could never marry the future King of England the hookup between their clans was not unprecedented.
Camilla Al-Fayed! I have no other guesses...scandalous but not surprising...

How would the NY Post get this with all off the English tabs making no mention??? Nope, don't think so. If there was another link between the Al Fayed's and the Windsors Mohammed Al Fayed would make very sure that it got out in the English media. So I don't believe it (though Camilla looks great and has the proper name for a royal affair !).

William is to start his flying lessons next week I guess. That's good since it is a life long dream of his, he won't be able to drink as much I heard.
