William really needs to get over his problems with the media.

There was an uncomfortable echo of a family trait when Prince William shot an unfriendly greeting at photographers awaiting his departure from the Royal Navy submarine museum in Gosport, Hants.............William sniffed: "Why don't you all fall in, so I can leave.'"

William in Garter ceremony

Am I right in thinking that William will be installed as a Knight of the Garter this week?

It's not the first time a Royal has been involved in a tumble at the polo – but this time it wasn’t Prince William who ended up flat on his face, but his young friend.

Thumbs up The 1000th Knight....

Hi,

William will become the 1000th Knight of the Order of the Garter tomorrow, which will be the 660th anniversary of its founding by Edward III....
I think it's wonderful that he should be installed as the 1000th knight, who will be a future King, carrying on the tradition of a past King...

That's significant, being the 1000th knight--and the monarchy's about 1000 years old, I believe. :-)

Yes Mermaid,

Very timely and appropriate.
I hope the Palace press plays this up to benefit the Monarchy!!!

Talking

Prince William has never failed to attract attention.
But the future king turned more heads than usual when he stripped to the waist - revealing a surprisingly toned torso.

The 25-year-old Prince was taking part in a clandestine Royal Navy exercise based on hunting down an enemy submarine and sinking it.

Prince Harry and Prince William attend a charity polo match at Beaufort Polo Club on June 22, 2008 in Tetbury, Gloucestershire. The Princes both played for the Apes Hill team which beat Stobarts 5-4.

Hadn't this been covered in articles back in April/May? Why bring it up know? It was expenive but he was still learning how to even his commanding officer should told him to do the regular training routes and not okayed to do those particular flights. Being it was Prince William the commading officer should careful to guide William not do those flights since if found out about they manke all of them appear stupid or at very naive since those flights would expenive.

At least they finally admitted they were all in the wrong!
Quote:
The RAF and royal aides initially sought to justify them as legitimate training flights, but later admitted that they were a "naive" public relations disaster and a "collective error of judgment".

The big question is why his officer would let William do those flights he knew William was a prince and it came out it look terrible and could even get one or both of them trouble and hurt the commanding officer's creer possibly.
