Prince William stepped in to help an Army friend, who was badly burned in a Taliban ambush in Afghanistan, to watch Spurs play Chelsea in the Carling Cup Final today.

With the further breakdown of trust in the foreign media? Let us hope if he is deployed everyone will manage to keep quiet!

It is reported that William volunteered for Christmas duty to make it easier for Harry to serve in Afghanistan over the holiday unnoticed. How nice that they have such a close relationship.

From the artcile -
The Sun knows exact details of where and when Navy top brass are considering sending William.
But we have agreed to withhold key information to protect him and his sailor comrades -

Really, why put anything then, perhaps someone will kidnap and force the 'information' out of them!

It's just a reaction on the good prince = William, bad prince = Harry -story. Now that Harry = good prince, William has to be an even better prince...

Or a media reaction to the leaking of the Harry story, a competition between newspapers to show both how much they know and how capable they are of keeping quiet. "Hey, this paper didn't just know about Harry for months without saying anything, we know information about William too, but we're being honourable and keeping our mouths shut!"

Sort of an attempt to break new information while still getting points for being responsible and discreet.

I'm pretty sure William would never be sent anywhere like Harry was....especially not now after that little experiment failed. They are just too high profile and need to except that they aren't normal, although Harry got has close as possible in those 10 weeks.

PRINCE William is poised to follow his brother Harry and be deployed on the frontline, says the Ministry of Defence.

Officials have said that the second-in-line to the throne could be sent overseas later this year with the Royal Navy.

Prince William is next for frontline duty, says MoD - Scotland on Sunday

Forced by one of the worst tabloids to release a statement.

If they send him out to fight then they're asking for trouble. Harry I've always understood him wanting to fight you could tell even when he was very young but William? Now after everything has happened why risk it? I dunno it's their choice I just hope they know what they're doing.

If William goes anywhere it will be interesting to see how it's handled because I get the feeling this media thing that failed this time will not work for so long next time. I can't see it going on for 10 weeks...

Before you order a man to march to war you should have a reasonable idea of how hes going to get there, what he will do when he gets there and what it will be like for him when he is there. Few soldiers would show respect for William if he didnt cover basic training.
