I get this impression too and that's probably why he's easing into his royal role instead of becoming a full time royal partly so he doesn't overshadow his father. And why not, he has plenty of time to do it gradually. And I would even take it a step further and say that might be why he chose the RAF instead of the Navy. In addition to his love of flying he also avoids unnecessary comparisons to his father.
I think he's being smart in taking a military job that he can keep himself preoccupied with despite his detractors' criticisms.

Thanks for finding all these pictures iceflower!!
I am so in love with Wills after seeing him be so natural and open with these kids! (Not that I already didn't have a huge crush on him!) But these just melt my heart.

Wow! He had 3 engagements in one day. Way to go William! I agree Lillibetforever he seems to be such a natural with kids. I like the pic of him receiving a big bear hug from that child on his lap.

He is such a natural with children truly his mother's son. I remember a photo take a Xmas or two ago walking to church holding Viscount Linley's daughter's hand as if it was the most natural thing in the world to do. Melts my heart he does. Lucky lady who eventually ends up marrying him. Hope he is godfather to one of Laura Lopes' twins.

What a busy day for him. Nice that his Aunt Sarah accompanied him on his first visit to the Hospice.
Like everyone else, my favorite pictures are of him interacting with the children. Too cute!

Wonderful that we get to see Auntie Sarah.
Beautiful pictures, a full day of engagements.
I hate how articles always say William follows in his mothers footsteps, can't he make his own every once in a while?

Great pics everyone. He looks so sweet with the children. I like the pic of him high fiving that kid.
Why did his aunt Sarah McCorquodale accompany him on the first visit? Does she live in the area? And why is she wearing that costume?

She's the High Sheriff of Lincolnshire. Perhaps the costume is the traditional one for the High Sheriff?

It's good to see Sarah with him as we don't get to see him with his Spencer relations very often.
He's so engaging with the children. He'll make a great father some day.
I'm sure he was excited to check out those fighter jets and probably would've loved to fly one.

Thanks for the photos!
It is a wise move on Prince William's part to increase involvement in various engagements. It was a pleasure to see Lady McCorquodale, who looked lovely in a green-and-white ensemble, accompanying her nephew. They seemed to be a great team working together.

It is unfortunate that the Daily Mail whips up frenzy around "the shadow king". If the people in grey suits decide that it is pivotal to the survival of the British monarchy as an institution to put Prince William on the throne, they will do it. If not, Prince Charles will ascend the throne. At the same time, I have to say that the order of succession should not be altered without really really serious reasons.

Prince William to receive his wings - Telegraph

Prince William will receive his wings today after completing an advance helicopter training course, taking him a step closer to becoming an RAF search and rescue pilot.
