Here's the article:

Express.co.uk - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express | UK News :: Exclusive: Prince William joins our crusade to honour bomber command heroes

According to Richard Palmer, the royal correspondent from The Daily Express, William is going to write for the paper:

Quote:
William, writing as patron of Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, felt bomber crews were the "Forgotten Thousands".

55,573 RAF bomber crew died in WW2 but there is no memorial to them. Campaigners need to raise £1m by Nov 1 to build monument in Green Park

Royal spokesman: William dismissed controversies over Dresden and carpet bombing, saying RAF pilots did what was right for their country.

William, invoking the spirit of his great-grandmother the Queen Mother, told of his passionate support for a memorial to Bomber Command.

Prince William tonight urged the British public to rally around to raise £1m in next few days for a memorial to forgotten RAF war heroes

Prince William writes exclusively for the Daily Express tomorrow.

William greatly resembles the queen's uncle, the late Duke of Kent, at least to my eyes, in that uniform.

I agree, yes; but I think that his smile is pure William.

I'm glad William is supporting this cause and these people will finally get the recognition they deserve.

There's an article about Prince William and his relationship with Kate Middleton in the December issue of Vanity Fair (with Cher on the cover).

A change to see Prince William in Naval uniform. Makes me wonder if he might be married in naval uniform like his father and grandfather

His grandfather was still a serving naval officer at the time of his marriage, as was his uncle Andrew who also married in naval uniform. As William will still be a serving RAF officer until at least 2013 I would expect him to marry in that uniform if he marries while still on active duty. Charles had also been an active officer in the navy rather than a part-timer (he was part-time in the army and air force just as William has been in the navy).

Express.co.uk - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express | UK News :: Prince William to a buy a 190mph 'Duke'

Prince William’s girlfriend may soon have to be content with riding pillion on a 190mph superbike rather than sinking into the luxury of a royal limousine.

And what Kate Middleton thinks of the second-in-line to the throne’s plans to buy a new top-of-the-range £17,500 Ducati – nicknamed Duke – can only be imagined...let alone thoughts for his safety by his father and the Queen.

The website of William's workplace:

RAF Valley - RAF Valley Homepage

Aim of the Station: to train future fast jet combat pilots; said to be the busiest station in the Royal Air Force.

Every year, RAF Valley organises the Prince of Wales Trophy, a low-level navigational competition which was started in the 1980s at RAF Brawdy.

That's the first time I've seen William with glasses - is that new or am I running behind?

I think I've seen pictures of him wearing glasses before, but for the life of me I cannot recall when that was.

I believe he was wearing them when he couldn't afford that pizza.
