Interesting article, William strikes me as a nice guy overall, has had a few bumps along the way but we all do.

Thankyou. Nice to see pics of PW's engagements in Wales. Shows he's becoming quite an accomplished royal.

I enjoyed this article when I came across it just a little while ago. Interesting how she says that William has "old eyes." I can believe that.

I don“t know why but I found the article about the royal massage and how it changed a young lady“s life very amusing.

Really? I found it touching--no pun intended. It shows the Prince as being polite and gentlemanly.

Really, Meranue, the pun was unintended. Honestly!!! But I'm glad that you got a kick out of it in any case.

I've moved the recent posts about the charity bike trek in Africa to the thread for this trek, which is here.

Is it just me who is concerned about the revelations about the whole chinook saga? Somehow this has dented my view on William somewhat and i don't think i'm the only one to feel that.

I think it's a distressing report - it's disheartening that he presents himself as someone who wants to be "normal" and then does something like the helicopter flights and has the military try to cover it up. I wonder if it's another moment of discord between "normal" life and royal life. When you grow up in the midst of such privilege, it's bound to skew your perceptions of what proper behavior and responsibilities are a bit. That's not an excuse, though - he should have known better from the start.

Mostly I hope that William's learned his lesson from the Chinook scandal. If he wants to remain in the good graces of the public, he can't be pulling stunts like his helicopter jaunts anymore.

I think the disheartening thing is that William wasn't straight with the public from the start and allowed others to be apportioned some of the blame too when in fact they knew little if anything about it - that shows little respect for the public and those misled i think.

Was William ever told what his limits were? Did anyone ever tell him that he couldn't make the flights that he did? It's being assumed that somehow William "pulled a fast one", but surely one of his superiors must have seen his flight plans.

Seeing his flight plans does not mean that he told his suprior officers he wanted to do those flights actually for. Why would one not asked why he choosing the IoW or going up to Scotland routes? If it had been anyone else would right through those plans when they did not at a another RAF base. Prince William figured wrongly that no one in the press would find out and the story the RAF covered it for him until the truth came out.

Prince William didn“t realize that he couldn“t take his airforce plane to go to a party?
Oh dear, future king of England!
I think he did something unforgiveable, put his superior officers in a very awkward position because of his position.
Someone is going to pay the price and I bet it won“t be Prince William.

Wasn't told, you are joking right. You don't really expect someone to sit him down and explain he is not allowed to use the cash strapped RAF as a personal taxi service.

If he couldn't work that out for himself, we are all in great trouble.

Well, you are all in great trouble. The more I see of William, the more inclined I am to vote for a republic.
