I only spoke of his mother because William had mentioned her in his speech and I thought that was sweet. I can assure you there was no intentional slight against Charles as a parent.

I don't know why The Mail is lashing out at William so viciously. But with the yellow press you have to take what they say with a huge grain of salt. Or perhaps they were too busy crowning Kate M. the "Queen of Good Causes" (as one article was titled) and they can only handle one compliment per week.

Wait a few seconds for it to come up.
Thanks for posting the video link of his speech. He delivered a wonderful speech and I could understand him just fine. I thought it was humorous the way he improvised about Sarah the tarantula getting lost. Clever of him.

You're quite welcome. Glad you enjoyed the video of his speech, and I agree he did a wonderful job.

I quite agree with what you say Iluvebertie. I hate it when they seem to forget that Charles has been their for his sons through a lot of troubles. He is an extremlt caring person, i would like to see him mentioned sometimes. Yes the boys seemed to have a close bond with their mother, but what about the bond they have/had with their father?

Thank you so much for the video. Just to point out -- a couple of lines after mentioning his mother, Prince William also acknowledges his father's influence on his love of nature. I thought it was a well-delivered speech and you can really feel a genuine interest there on William's part.

His delivery is excellent here. He's taking his time, and so he's much easier to understand. The subject matter was also very good. Well done, YRH!

Thanks for this. I've never heard him give a speech before. He looks so handsome and confident. And I noticed he has a very deep voice. From the interview they once did I noticed he and Harry have very different voices. Harry has a more soft spoken voice. He sounds more like Charles I think. So perhaps William sounds more like the Spencer side?

I agree William has a nice deep voice. Harry sounds just like Charles and also Phillip. I don't think he sounds like the Spencer side, I've seen a video of Diana's father the late Earl speaking to journalists at the hospital after Diana gave birth. I don't know what her brother Charles sounds like though.

I'm surprised there's someone on these forums who hasn't seen or heard this. Commences about 1.41.

Nope, I haven't seen this on YouTube. Saw it when it happened a long time ago but I had forgotten what he sounded like. And after listening to him I don't think William sounds like the Spencer side either. Maybe he was adopted.

BTW, it was a beautiful service for Diana. Thanks Roslyn for posting it.

An award-winning Norfolk pub has welcomed two VIP guests for lunch, it emerged yesterday.

Prince William and Prince Harry, plus an unidentified friend, dropped into the Dabbling Duck at Great Massingham, not far from the royal estate at Sandringham

Prince William has shared an impressive farmhouse with brother Harry at RAF Shawbury for several months but he will soon be downgrading to more modest accommodation.
William, 27, who is training to become a search and rescue pilot, will live in the bases mess when he transfers to RAF Valley in Anglesey, Wales

Does he still have protection officers on Base? I would have thought the securtity would be more than adequate. On a different note, living in the Mess would be a great experience for him if he was allowed to actually "fly solo".

Oh Marg, the officers mess is so much more provided for than in our day, all the trappings of home if you want to provide them, the only difference is that they have to keep them tidyish, (if that means 'asking' someone else to do it, well .... ). Silly as it seems, I would expect the protection officers to remain. IMO it would be suggested that nobody on the base would be adequately trained in the special skills required to guard a member of the RF full time.

Prince William wants to score winning goal for England

He is very supportive of the bid and will do his part in whatever way the FA deems appropriate," says a spokesman for the Prince, who took over as president of the sport's governing body from the Duke of York in 2006."Prince William is heavily involved and will remain so until the winning bid is announced in December 2010

Hmm, a part time pilot then!

And another article on the same topic.


William to take the Queen’s place Down Under
(scroll down to the second part of the article)

Quote:
Prince William is hoping to travel to New Zealand in the New Year as part of his first official overseas trip in place of the Queen.
The Prince is due to visit Australia, possibly as early as January, and Clarence House aides also want him to go to New Zealand as part of the trip.

He is also planning a visit to Africa before he completes his RAF training next September.

Definitely a part time soldier/airmen then, if it is true! The story started with the News of the World -
Quote:
Although he is training to be a RAF Search and Rescue helicopter pilot, sources have told us the Prince is being slowly repositioned in the role of "King-in-waiting".
The Queen - who has given the plans her backing - believes the roving royal role will give the monarchy a fresher, younger feel.
http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/news...elsy-Davy.html
----------------------------
I am quite certain HM is fully aware that her son, Charles is the King in waiting and there is nothing that can alter that. If William is going to be a roving royal, then the cost of training him as a SAR pilot, needs to be paid back, as is the case with anyone who completes the training and then does not fulfill the terms of the contract!

I sometimes ponder whether the sons would have had the same loving bonding if Diana had not passed away, or whether there would have been problems between the sons and Charles brought on by constant criticism made by each party against the other.

There wasn't much criticism--at least in public--after the divorce. But I do think that Diana would have had a hard time as her sons became adults and eventually found serious girlfriends, particularly if she didn't find love personally.
