I'm glad to see that CH has quashed the "shadow king" rumours once and for all.

Thank you ghost night554 for posting these links.
Regarding the Shadow King one, I get the impression that he's trying to establish himself while at the same time trying not to step on Charle's toes or overshadow him in any way. It must be difficult at times and maybe that's why he has held back a little bit. He seems very respectful toward his father which is nice.

He is not only respectful towards his father but clearly absolutely adores him and will not allow anyone to put him forward in any way that undermines his father.

Because it's not his turn. Prince Charles is the next in line to the throne, not William. He would be usurping his father's right to become king.

Because he loves his father.

Really there are two reasons:


1. His father has been trained and prepared for it for years. It is his father's birthright to succeed his mother and William's to succeed his own father. William, of course, loves his father and to replace his father as the next King would damage that relationship, which is very very important to both men.

2. Considering the ages concerned the Queen will most likely pass on while William has youngish children and becoming King would therefore take from him some of the pleasures of being a father whereas with his father being King, William will still have those times with his own children that his father had with him but the Queen didn't have with her children due to becoming monarch at such a young age. Even if Charles is only King for 10 years that is 10 years more for William to spend time with his own growing family.

IMO Prince William looks very old in this portrait.

Double portrait of princes William and Harry unveiled
http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standa...ait-gallery.do

Another couple of articles

I hope we can see a better quality picture of this portrait, my first impression is that Harry looks great and that William is 10 tones blonder than he actually is, however the poses are cool!

Harry is still formally a member of the Blues and Royals, and currently wears their uniform. He is training to be a member of the Army Air Corps, but isn't one yet. Should he be successful in his training, then he'll join the Army Air Corps and no longer be part of the Blues and Royals.

What a nice portrait of the brothers together. I like how it looks formal but yet relaxed.

Yes, she made him look less attractive than he is in real life (not something he can afford) and also took an artistic licence with his hair (to his advantage this time). Harry however is spot on.

Overall, it looks too much like the cover of a romance novel for me.

I was trying to think what it reminded me of and that is exactly it - the historical fiction romance books that I have read set in the Napoleonic Wars.

I don't like how she did William either. Harry looks alright though.
