Speaking of motorbikes I wonder if this is true. And if so where they might go this time or maybe to the same place if it's an annual event.

Hmm, I can't decide if I like this type of portrait or not. I appreciate the concept of it. It's different. I'm just not sure I like how the Queen looks in it. It'll be interesting to see what he does with William and Harry's portrait.

I'm sure Rankin has done other famous people, but who else has he done a portrait of? Anyone know?

The article makes it clear that he isn't actually flying the mission but is more an observer but that that is part of the training anyway.

Frankly my feeling is that this portrait of HM looks quite odd. I like her smile, but its nothing special in this portrait (why does it look like she has brown eyes??). Looking forward to the portraits of William and Harry

Last year, Prince Andrew cost the taxpayer £140,000 for jetting round the world and entertaining in his role as a global ambassador for British business.
Understandably, objections have been raised over his “snoozing and schmoozing” expenses but Air Miles Andy’s jaunts are mere budget airline trips compared to Prince William’s colossal £600,000 military pilot training bill.

From my point of view it is a complete waste of time and money and resources that are needed urgently elsewhere.
He will never use these skills and isn´t expected to, he will appear with his uniform and medals all over his chest whether he takes/finishes this course or not.
I am inclined to agree with the assessment that it is just indulging a boy´s fantasies, but at a tremendous cost to the British people.
In other words, absolutely useless expenditure.

I was under the impression that he was being trained to serve with the SAR. As he couldn't serve on the ground in Afghanistan this was seen as a real alternative.

I thought the SAR was a section of the RAF that served both at home and overseas and that he was going to serve, probably at home, on domestic Search and Rescue missions for a number of years.

If he isn't going to actually serve then it is a waste of his time and taxpayers money but if he truly is going to serve then he needs to be as fully trained as the other officers in the SAR surely, in which case it isn't a waste of time and money. He will have to serve however, for the required number of years (unless he actually becomes King during that time).

Please correct me if my assumption is wrong and that their is no intention of him actually serving with the SAR.

All pilots who serve with SARF serve in combat zones as well as in the UK. The exception is likely to be William, therefore, IMO, it does make it a waste of valuable resources.

I see what you are saying but at the same time someone has to be deployed to do the job at home and having William do that frees up another pilot for combat duty. That is, of course, unfair in that one pilot isn't taking that extra risk but the other side is that there is a pilot able to do the work at home.

I have read, though, that William does hope to be deployed to Afghanistan in this capacity and I hope he gets his wish (so long as no extra soldiers are deployed to protect him).

We won't see them, of course -- but isn't it interesting that The Sun congratulates itself on not publishing the pictures, but they certainly did take the time to reveal fairly detailed descriptions of them!
