Is he at RAF Linton-upon-Ouse or RAF Shawbury? I would think that he is still at RAF Linton-upon-Ouse doing flying training on the truboprop. He is not already trainee helicopter pilot is he?

Anyone hear about this one yet?? Not sure whether it's true Behind the lines: prince considers (brief) media career | Special reports | Guardian Unlimited

I think they try to copy the way Princess Caroline teach her daughter, Charlotte Casiraghi.

The prince, who has already served in the army, is currently undergoing training with the RAF in Lincolnshire to become a pilot and later this year will spend time with the Royal Navy. After that, advisers are keen for him to undertake a range of training in civilian life, to complete his education in how the country he will one day rule operates.
Among the options is spending time at the Foreign Office or in a government department to watch the civil service at work - though not Downing Street, where he would potentially be embroiled in partisan political issues - or in sport, the legal profession, or even the Church of England, of whose faith he will one day be defender.
Does this mean that William is not going to do a third year in the military which would he actually be only two years regular Army Duty? Prince William was really going to only a year in the Army that is not fair when most young officers in the Blues and Royals has to do three years. Am I correct or not?

He is way too expensive, maybe.. they did suggest he is wasting taxpayer cash. So, they cut it short. Besides, he won't serve the country in war or something ...but that's only my assumption

I don't think he'll benefit from spending even more time in the military. He started in 2005 and will finish by the end of 2008, that's enough for him to get an impression about military life, IMO. It sounds reasonable that he should thereafter work with government institutions especially the diplomatic services or the Church of England for further "King lessons". I guess that is also pretty much in line with the paths most other royal "trainees" took.

He has only really been in the Army as a Commissioned Officer just over a year. At the end of the year he will have been in the Military for just under two years. This is not even long enough receive his Lieutnentcy.

At the ripe old age of 25, it appears Prince William is already worried about his thinning crown, above.

A leading Harley Street clinic claims he sent an aide to ask about a medication called Propecia that promotes hair growth

He has no training to allow him to work as anything other than a clerk in the 'legal' profession and what could he do within the CoE?

I hope he will will lose it in the back like his father and not like his uncle in the front. When you lose your hair in the front it make you look older like Edward looked.

Well, good for him if he is going to try a medication. If he is bothered by it, he should take a proactive step to try things that might counteract it.
It does look like his hair is thinning more the back way on the crown, rather than that front thing, the receding hairline.
I think I might be scared to take such medication though. It might stimulate more hair growth where you don't want it!!!!

How will working as a journalist help him prepare for royal duties?

Prince William surprised diners at a York curry restaurant last night by dropping in unannounced with 47 friends.

The heir to the throne arrived from nearby RAF Linton-on-Ouse, where he is ungergoing pilot training.

Seems quite good at making "friends".... Or did he just pay for all of them?
