Traditionally the British senior royal men have gone to Dartmouth - the naval academy rather than Sandhurst. William and Harry are the most senior royal men to go there as Charles, Andrew and Philip all went to Dartmouth.

Yeah I know but it was only temporary. He doesn't have to now. And William probably hated it.. being as competitive as they seem to be. I could see Harry ribbing him about it.

I'm waiting for Wills photo in the cockpit. Then the champagne can flow.

Yes, but that's because they decided to serve in the navy. As William and Harry chose the army, wasn't it expected they would go to Sandhurst instead of Dartmouth? I'm not sure of the different military branches in Britain. In America we have the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. How many different branches does Britain have?

Dartmouth is the Naval College and Sandhurst the Army so when William and Harry decided to go into the army Dartmouth was no longer an option.
Britain also has an Air Force and a Marine Corps (Edward was in the marines).

Now William is transferred to the Air Force branch (RAF).

I've often thought one of the reasons William didn't choose the navy (Dartmouth) is to avoid unnecessary comparisons to his father. It probably would have been easier to serve in the navy as he wouldn't have had the press intrusion and could go anywhere in complete privacy without anyone knowing, so there must have been a good reason he chose the path he did. The same thing with Harry.

Prince William was invited to the Swedish royal wedding.
We will not know until the day, whether he will actually attend.

There has been nothing official from Pr.William pertaining to the Swedish Wedding, there was a tabloid story which made claims, he would not attend. No statements have been made officially as who will attend from the British Royal Family. It is great to see so many of the British Royals have been invited. I'm looking forward to the day to see who from the British Royal Family actually attends.

William could easily attend the wedding and fly to the World Cup duties, I don't understand why one day can not be used for attendance to the future Queen's wedding?
As future Monarchs , Pr.William is in Princess Victoria's age group, IMO, it would be wonderful if Pr.William attended the wedding along with the others invited from the BRF.

I would imagine there will be several Royals who attend both the wedding and the World Cup?

We'll just have to see because I don't think it would be nice to forgo the wedding for the World Cup.

I would love to see him attend the wedding, just for the photos of him amongst all the Royals.

Maybe he can do both, with a stand in for him at the World Cup on the one day he attends the wedding?

It would be wonderful to see him amongst the European Royal houses at the wedding.


P.S. How is Camilla's leg, will she be okay to travel in time? I hope so.

He could leave the World Cup for a day, but he might not want to. I imagine a few royals will travel to see their country play, but William is Patron of the England Football Association and he takes his royal seriously. He's been invited, but if he doesn't really know Victoria, and doesn't feel it's time to enter "the world stage" he might choose the World Cup. If push comes to shove i think we can be safe in knowing that Edward and Sophie will at least attend.
There will be no announcement to from any royal family until just before the wedding.

Camilla's leg is still in a cast, should be out of the cast for the wedding, and relatively healed, depending on the break.

I imagine one day away from the World Cup for a future Queen's wedding would be a possibility for William if is asked to attend.

I hope so. I can't wait to see who attends. So many wonderful photos.

England plays a game starting at 8.30p.m. on the 18th June. It probably won't finish until about 10.00 or 10.15 p.m.

He would have to then catch a flight to Stockholm in time for the wedding.

I don't think he will make the wedding given his position as Patron of the FA as he does have a duty to support England in the World Cup and that includes attending the game on the 18th. I also think he would prefer the World Cup to the wedding of someone he doesn't really know. His invitation is because of his position and not based on friendship really.

How reliable is this publication? Isn't Aftonbladet a Swedish tabloid?
I didn't think royal houses released the list of who received an invitation. I thought they only released the list of who confirmed they would be attending.

If it was a list of RSVPs then I don't think Jonas Bergstrom would be number 6 on the list.

It is a list of the people who have been invited, not an RSVP list, and Jonas would've replied since last year anyway so if it was a RSVP list he would still be on there.
The information is pretty accurate.
