He represented the Queen in 2010 on an official visit to open the NZ High Court.
Now this visit, so that makes 3.

Not too many men get excited to see/meet a Prince.

Actually, this is visit number four. Willlam's very first visit happened when he was just a toddler and came along w/Diana and Charles during their first overseas tour, which was Australia and New Zealand. Those pictures of William crawling on a picnic blanket and Diana holding his hands/supporting his balance while standing were taken in New Zealand.

I still have the scrapbook I kept back then and the headline on the picture of William crawling w/his proud parents watching over him is "The Royal Crawlabout!!"

If you should get close enough to exchange a few words, the correct form of address is 'Your Royal Highness' and thereafter, 'Sir'.

I'm sure he'd do the asking whereby all you need to do is politely reply.

Simple.

Madame Royale I have been reading a lot of your posts latley and I have and I held my tounge for long enough but sometimes your post are a little rude and I don't like the tone of them sometimes... Madame you may know more then what others know but that doesn't mean you be like that to them, you explain it to them as nicely as possible, not this Simple stuff.

I am a teacher at the schools that he is visiting tomorrow and my studentss will be there to greet him which means I will be meeting him

When I met Camilla I heard that it was correct to address her as "your royal highness" and it was what I was planning on doing but in the midst of the moment forgot she did most of the talking I could barely say anything I went into a state of shock. I had a whole spech set up but froze when she started talking to me. I'm sure Prince William will be lovely from everything I've read. I'd say just be as natural as possible knowing William he may even be like oh just call me William. Though don't worry if you freeze up I did. But most of all enjoy that's the most important thing of all! Good luck!

Also I don't get this woman why would she be disappointed he didn't hold on of her babies? Did she try asking him? You just met your future king I'd be jumping by now if I was her. Idk maybe that's just me, maybe I'm just jealous since I prob won't get to see him this summer.

He paused to meet Cairns mother Melody Willis and her baby twins Ruby and Jala who were born on the eve of the cyclone and needed to be evacuated by the RFDS to Brisbane after the Cairns Hospital was closed.
"He said they were beautiful and he said they were so tiny they look like they should still be inside," she told reporters.
"I said, `well they should be, they were born 10 weeks early'."
She said she was looking forward to telling the girls about the encounter when they got older but was a little disappointed the prince didn't hold one of them.

Once I met Prince Charles in London amongst a small group of people outside the Royal Opera House. This was completely unofficial and most of us were tourists. He addressed us more as a group, something like " Are you all from America?" and "Are you enjoying London?". That sort of thing, very easy and fun.

In your case, William's comments may well be a bit more personal (I hope) but he also may be more focused on the students with you. In any event, you will do great! How exciting for you! The couple of times I have seen royals, I swear that they fairly glow from the inside. Can't wait to hear your report afterwards...good luck!

Reported in the australian press (from Cairns and The Australian and SH) A woman is interviewved :
'I asked William when he was going to come back and he said, 'well we might have to come back for our honeymoon!' Everyone started shrieking and applauding.'
I do not think he is saying this just to please. He knows that every word is reported by the press and talk about Australia as a destination for their honeymoon if it is not true seems impossible and would disappoint a region and a country for which he seems to do so much effort. Then William is much wiser and deeper into his comments at the moment, so I think it is a true information and that he and Kate have decided together their destination. Let us not forget also that William a few days ago called on people to return to Australia for tourism and not to desert the region after the earthquakes and floods. Nothing is left to chance now regarding William and Kate. I do not believe for a moment that their destination is Kenya. It is a regular vacation spot for them and there they became engaged in October. It must be by definition a Commonwealth country but they must be able to mingle honeymoon and obligations regarding their position. I really believe in what he said Australia is a perfect choice.

Do you remember that William had already leaked an information (before he went in 2010) and that he was going to Australia (he spoked about Melbourne, I think). It was not a trivial confidence. William is too smart for that and well briefed. No room for the random.

I still believe that Kenya is at least one destination, the couple got engaged there. It is a place that is very close to their hearts and although Australia might be a little close to Williams - has Kate ever even been there to form some kind of attachment to the country?
Wherever they go on their honeymoon, I doubt they're going to let anyone especially the press know and I hope they don't do the whole photo sessions thing that Victoria and Daniel did (which was immmensly tacky IMO).

agree for the photo sessions it was tacky. But I disagree for the honeymoon. Regarding the past english wedding the destinations has always been known for the heir to the throne and the honeymoon was part holidays part business like usuel and duties. Secondly, nobody choose for his honeymoon a destination where they are used to go, to see the same people, do the same things, no surprises then. They have plenty opportunities to go back to Kenya. It's a perfect opportunity for william to introduce kate to australia and new zealand without being an official tour but just holidays and of course some walkabouts. It will be very clever. You never choose a destination for whom you have some kind of attachement for your honeymoon. Often the husband surprise his wife with a destination she does not know. I am married and I went to Tasmania (and a little to Sydney) for my honeymoon and never put a foot to australia before. I went back this past august 15years after my honeymoon. Can I ask you where did you spend your honeymoon and if it was a destination you knew before?

It wouldn't surprise me one bit if William and Kate go to Australia for at least part of their honeymoon. As you have stated, William called on folks to support tourism in Australia and both Wills and Kate decided together to ask for donations to a relief fund in lieu of wedding gifts, it would stand to reason that they'd do exactly what they ask others to do.
Actions speak so much louder than words.

I do also imagine that they will be out and about among the people too and maybe even a photo-op or two. Like Victoria and Daniel, these two are a couple that have been together for years and unlike couples such as Charles and Diana who had spent next to no time together before the wedding, these two are very comfortable with each other, seem to be very much people persons and would want to enjoy where they are. I'm sure though that they'll slip away somewhere we won't know about and have their own quiet time for just the two of them too.
