No, they practice because that is required as part of their full training. They will end up putting their lives at risk! William will have no use to the RAF, if he wanted to get a private pilots license, he should pay out of his own pocket.

I guess well from what I seem to understand what he's probably saying is that he wanted to get as much training as possible which I don't see anything wrong with. I guess since he had some functions to attend to they saw it as a good chance to test out his skills he had learned so far which would help him improve in his training. In William's mind he probably saw it as a free ride ( I hate to admit it)and a chance to get in some flying hours. Would most people allowed to do something like this probably not but again that's why people at the RAF were furious about this and why MOD released that statement.But was the ride completly useless in his training I'd say probably not but it most likely wasn't the right thing to do either.

It's great to see William out and making so many personal appearances. People on message boards have wanted this for so long that I'm surprised that there's not more positive comment than there is.

Question Are there any reports on where Prince William is?

Could his naval training have already started?

I do know if it has or not but the rumor is that he in Mustique for a week with Kate. I think more more than likely he just lying for a while before his navy training begins in June. He might have started pre Navy training stuff.

It does feel like something is going on an air of mystery to it perhaps.

I think if it seems he's laying low recently its probably due to his recent controversies.

And his preparations for the Royal Navy. I'm sure he has a lot on his mind, especially with all the pressure.

The last comment on Peter Philips is stupid: the poll was for hottest young royal, not hottest single royal. Whoever came up with these silly pieces couldn't even get their own story straight.

Sub-Lieutenant I think since is either a Second Lt or a Lt in the Army. Is really going to do only two months or is it a total four months two months being training and two with various units in Royal Navy?

Prince William will spend his summer in the Caribbean tackling drug smugglers.

The Prince will fly some of the Navy's helicopters, but officials insist he will only fly on training missions
