ic Wales: "Charlotte wants Wills to wed"
Here, Charlotte Church says, "Really, I wish that William and Kate would get married, so that they would concentrate on them.”
Wishing the press would concentrate on William and Kate? As if they don't? God, I wish the press would concentrate on anything but them!
It's becoming more and more annoying to me that news about the Prince unrelated to Kate is impossible to find.

I do understand what you're saying, it's become difficult to find information about Prince William only. But the articles about the completion of his Tank Commander course seem to focus on the prince, I just wish they hadn't made that nasty comment about the quality of Prince William's passing.

I hope this won't annoy you further, but it was nice to read that Prince William took Kate Middleton to Tam Na Ghar after they returned from their Seychelles Island trip. I finally realized the article was saying he took her there for a visit before the Remembrance service for his mother! At first I thought it was saying they were there now. I wonder if any photos of their visit will surface?

I hope so, because the only thing more annoying than the media obsession with Prince-William-boyfriend-of-Kate-Middleton is the debate on whether or not they are "on again".

I now believe they are seeing one another, but it would be nice if Prince William weren't so adamant about keeping his personal life out of the public's eyes! It makes it very difficult for me to mind his business.

Apparently Kate hasn't quit her job yet. She was at a trade show when she wore the Black and white dress.

Well, he has just completed his specialty training with the army, so I imagine he must work at it for some time before he goes onto the naval phase.

As for Kate, the "official unofficial" word is that they are together again, but until there is something a bit more reliable to go on, I seriously doubt the moderators will reopen her thread. Though I wish they would, as much as anyone else here.

A new article about Prince William has appeared.

Revealed: The party that rekindled Kate and William's love for each other | the Daily Mail

"Revealed: The party that rekindled Kate and William's love for each other

The couple, who had split up in March this year, are also said to have taken a secret holiday together after the break-up during which they developed 'a new understanding' about the future of their relationship.
The claims, made in today's Evening Standard newspaper, shed new light on the events leading up to the royal couple's break-up and their reunion.

It is claimed that months after the break-up the pair were reunited at a party at 17th Century mansion Upton Viva, thrown by Sam Waley-Cohen, son of racehorse breeder and trainer Robert Waley-Cohen. Guests reported that Kate and William were seen having an intimate conversation at the event."

Thanks, TonyaR. Did you happen to read the comments to the article? What about that fruitcake who calls William an "airhead Gemini" and Kate a "grounded Capricorn"? Astrology, oh good lord!

Casiraghi Trio, I don't believe astrology has any bearing on how airheaded or grounded a person is! I think fruitcake is the correct word for that lady.

William is not an airhead and I agree with TonyaR even he were an airhead it would have nohing to astrological sign.

He is unlikely to be promoted for at least 2 years, normally it is 3 years unless they show exceptional leadership qualities. I think he is expected to serve as an Army Officer for a minimum of 2 years, before going on to train with the RAF or Navy.

You would at least expect her to get the descriptions right. Gemini is described thus:-
Changeable, agile, dexterous, communicative, versatile, restless, lively, alert, literary, sociable and intellectual.
not an airhead in sight
Capricorn -
Ambitious, serious, disciplined, practical, methodical, thrifty, responsible and reliable.
I speak from experience and neither of these descriptions comes close!

I thought it was it was two years but know more then I do about British Army promotion process. How does any young officer show his he has exceptional leadership skills without deployed with the frist two years of service?
As far as I had been able to understand he will do about 2 years in the Army and than attachments in the Royal Navy and RAF where he will do officer training in those services and maybe other training those services.
Does anyone really know how long either the attachments will be?
During the attachments is still considered in the Army or what?

With the varying degree courses available now, the old fast track through as a graduate has to some extent been done away with. The exceptions to that are medical staff and now some other specialists. Computer programmers or IT 'experts'are being treated in the same way as doctors or dentists.

An exceptional leader has a natural ability, people look to him or her regardless of the rank he/she holds. Most people have met or know someone that inspires them or that they want to do their best for. They are good at their job and complete every task they are given with such professionalism that they make it look easy. They will also listen to others, take what they say 'on board', but make their own decision. It shouldn't matter whether they are deployed or not, if they have got 'it', it shows wherever they are based.

The detachments, I believe will be for a minimum of 6 months but possibly a year at each, during which time he will still receive an army officers pay and nothing from either of the other services.

Yes, there is a thread where you can discuss Ms Middleton: Royal's ex-partners in the Royal Chit Chat Forum.
