Apparently it would mean that, unless the difference in time zones would allow them to get to SA on the 14th having been at the Garter Ceremony earlier. But I doubt it.

As far as I know, South Africa and the UK are either in the same time zone or very close (within an hour or two), so I doubt it as well.

I was not really expecting to see William and Harry at the Swedish wedding. You do not see them at events of other royal families at all.

I wasn't expecting either of them to be there but others had been speculating.
We now know that it isn't possible.

The lengthy discussion of the possibility of Prince William one day piloting a plane on a royal tour, the type of aircraft piloted by Crown Prince Willem Alexander of The Netherlands, and the ongoing debate over the definition of a "small plane" have all been moved to the Royal Transportation thread.

Marathon not a sprint for Prince William and Jecca Craig - Telegraph

Quote:
Jessica Craig, with whom Prince William reportedly carried out a "pretend engagement" while he was staying at Lewa, her family's wildlife reserve in Kenya, before going to university, still looms large in his life.
The latest project which has brought them together is the Safari Marathon, on Lewa, which William is supporting. Last week, the Prince received prospective runners at St James's Palace.

So because he has supported a "project" that is on her land? Is that right?
Thats means they may get back together?
Thats quite far fetched.

They say William is "supporting" this event. Does that mean he'll participate in this marathon? I don't see why he would need to meet with prospective runners at St. James Palace. For what purpose? This article doesn't give much information.

I wouldn't be surprised is he does participate in it. He's ran in a marathon before.
Hopefully we'll get more information about it.

I suppose he met them to encourage them. People training for a marathon need encouragement and this one is one he is interested in so he wants to talk to those taking part and make them feel that their efforts are appreciated.

This marathon also raises money for the Tusk charity that William supports (at least it did last year) so I suppose that is a reason for his interest.

It will be held on the 26th June which is a week after the end of his official tour of South Africa. I found that out here: http://www.tusk.org/safaricom-marathon-2009.asp

If England make it through to the second round of the World Cup they will be playing either on the 26 or 27th (depends on whether they finish 1st or 2nd in their group - and whether I am reading the draw correctly).

With his birthday falling in the week after his tour of SA ends I wonder if he would return to Britain for that event and then go back to Africa for another event. He could of course spend his birthday in SA with Kate, Harry and Chelsy and then stay for England's game or travel to Kenya for the safari or....

I don't think he would fly home for his birthday then fly to SA again. I would presume he would stay there, make sense.

I agree that it makes sense for him to stay in one place, whether it is SA for the football, or move to Kenya for the Marathon, or return to England and stay there. A lot would depend on his training requirements of course.

Thx for all the info. on this marathon Iluvbertie. So perhaps he's planning on extending his stay in Africa another week.
Will be interesting to see...

I seem to remember him and Harry running in a race in London, perhaps a couple of years ago. It wasn't quite recent.

I remember him running in a sprint event about the time that Harry was preparing for Sandhurst because Harry couldn't run due to the knee injury that delayed his entrance.

Who is this Jessica Craig? Will he be apart of this scheduled marathon or what?
