Surely this is getting into the political arena - a no-no for royals surely (if it isn't ok for his father to 'interfere' in a matter of architecture how can it be acceptable for Prince William to be making public comments about issues such as this?)

I think your right iluvbertie. But this article does have a point, Diana was an amazingly compassionate woman, she was a strong woman. But I think William does need to be tougher and braver than his mother.

These are just two of the sources that ran the story.
I hope this doesn't turn out bad. Obviously I can't speak for everyone in Argentia, but I have several friends from there and as much as they like the royal family, they seem to think this a bad idea.

Those articles are several months old. If I remember correctly, the MOD ended up denying that any Falklands post was ever discussed. Whether that's true or not, I think the quick push-back that happened just from floating newspaper articles about the possibility of such a posting probably nipped the idea completely in the bud.

He will be posted where he gets posted, they do a strict rotation of crews and hopefully William will be no exception. If you look on it that the Falkland Islanders will welcome him with open arms as opposed to the Argentinians being upset....
It is no different to him being posted to Afghanistan, many of them wouldn't welcome him either!

That's true - hadn't thought about that! Anyway, I think he'll do fine where ever he goes.

PRINCE William will do his bit to resurrect the plight of British Water Polo as their London 2012 hopes hang by a thread

Well i'm glad to see William getting behind something he loves and is good at. It would be a shame if Water Polo didn't happen in the olympics.

Here's an image which does not fit in to your usual picture of the Royals.
Prince William left the polo today, put on his leathers, and rode off into the sunset on a Ducati motorbike

It's certainly a great way to travel around incognito!

Quite not incognito, if the daily mail photographers have recognised him. But it would be a good way to travel around; I agree, a nice way to hide from the nasty press.
He does look exceddingly un-princely like in the leathers.

Lovely pictures of William on this engagement -- he really does seem energized on visits that include kids!

I love William =) he's as natural as his mother was. And he's looking like his uncle Edward lately.
