I guess that not attending events together is not that big a deal, they can arrive and leave at different times but behind closed doors be a couple.

I suppose it is a small price to pay for all the good things they get to do together.

Personally I would be very dissapointed if William married within the next five years, I think he should enjoy his life as a single man as long as he can.

I think this whole Kate and William marrying topic is totally out of hand, I am sure he will have plenty more women (who the press will thing is "the one") before he does actually settle down.

Most of the recently married Princes were in their 30's when they did indeed marry and I think that is a good thing, they have lots of experiences and when they meet their future bride they are sure about her.

I don;t think it would be so bad for Kate, I mean she was a uni for the last 4 years so she would not have wanted to be going to social events with William.

Princess Mary was a woman of the World and had to stay in Prince Frederik's shadow for 4 years, so it can be done.

Even if William and Kate do end up marrying I hope it will not be for some time to come.

Nice article thank you. Yes, she's sexy in that dress but I personnally find it quite ok. Nothing vulgar or trashy there.

Xposure agency own this photo, maybe in a few days they will have them on their site for the public to see.
I think the dress is fine, I think Kate gets away with it as she has not got a big chest, if she did they would be spilling out and then it might look slutty.

There was a small piece on The Today Show about whether Kate and William are getting engaged soon. The main part of the piece featured Dickie Arbiter (and I assume he still has an "in" with the royals). Dickie says that they aren't getting engaged any time soon and, additionally, William was concerned about the media swarming Kate (like they did with Diana, Fergie, Sophie and Camilla) and that's why Kate was given some training on how to deal with it.

William

ORIGINALLY POSTED BY kpusa1981

When did Prince William do the Offical trip to NZ?
When did he supposedly go to Africa?
When did he get back to England from the supposed trip to Africa?
Could CH have kept it secret since his brother is at Sandhurst?

Harry to...

William will be taking his RCB in October. Why would and how can Harry help William train when Officer Cadet Wales (Harry) is training at Sandhurst?

He can help him by telling Will some rules, and what to expect. So Will doesn't go in completely blind like Harry did. Remember Harry's shock at clothes thing? Harry can teach Will different things like that.

Prince William Portrait to be sold

From the Daily mail

Prince William portrait to fetch £100,000

The only life portrait of Prince William is to go on sale this week. The rare study of the second-in-line to the throne when he was 17 was painted by artist John Wonnacott in preparation for a group picture of the royal family to celebrate the late Queen Mother's 100th birthday.


It will be put on public display for the first time on Wednesday at Agnew's gallery in Mayfair, London, alongside Wonnacott's other preliminary works. Two pictures of the Queen Mother and one of the six royals in the final image - the Queen, the Queen Mother, the Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales and Princes William and Harry - will also be available for collectors to buy.

Fury As Wills Snubs Army Career...

Prince William has turned his back on Army Career-sparking a bitter row with his dad Charles.The 23 year old has told his friends he would rather do charity work than follow brother Harry to Sandhurst.

But His father suspects Wills changed his mind because he does not want to miss the FA Cup final at the new Wembley Stadium and the World cup in Germany next year..

full article: http://www.people.co.uk/news/

which one true story which to believe the stort between "Wills Drills Army Place" and "Fury as Wills Snubs Army Career"???????

There is no way to truly compare the the American degrees to the Scottish or English counterparts. This is because the pupil usually just studies a Degree Course ie History so unless the pupil decides to take a few courses out side of the degree they become an expert in that subject.

Ah I see - I misunderstood! My modules work as follows:
Each year you have to take 120 'CATS' with each module being worth a varying amount of CATS - in Computer Science usually 6 or 12 and in Engineering usually 7.5 or 15 at my university, though arts modules tend to be 24 or 30 CATS so they only study around 4 modules a year. You can choose to do slightly more than 120 CATS if you want (e.g. I'm doing 139.5 CATS this year across 12 modules) to enable you to take slightly more broad options. For each course in each year, there are certain 'core' modules which you have to take and then approved option modules which you can make up the rest of your CATS from. Alternatively, if there is a module in another department that you'd like to take, you can apply to do it as an 'unusual option' and usually if you have the requisite knowledge and a good reason for doing it ("it's easy" doesn't cut it ) then they'll let you.
A 4th year student "Arthur" takes a 40 CATS Modules Disseration. How would get up to the 120 CATS Modules would he havr to take? This is what I was gettting at. Are "Subjects" different then the CATS modules?
This is how is t is set up at St Andrews whrer Prince William attend

If you use a 4.00 GPA and just coverted it the his GPA would have been 2.40 to 2.76. However the work that he had to do included all wriiten essays exams and and 50,000 word dissertation in both 3rd Year (Junior year in the USA) and another dissertation of equal size in 4th year ( Senior Year in the USA). In most ot the courses that he took the Course work was either33% or 40% of the final mark and the exams at the end of each unit and or the term were 60 or 67% of the final mark.

I saw the whole painting (with the family group) and I think it's quite good. It's kind of moody, but he's looking down at the Queen Mother. IMO it's the artist's way of showing William contemplating the past and his own future.

I think Wikipedia gives a great definition. "Upper Second Class Honours (2:1) "

Spam's canned as William ploughs a familiar furrow
By Katie Nicholl, Mail on Sunday. Sept 25 2005.. edited

Prince William has agreed to do the land management part of his 'work
experience' on his father's Duchy Estate and will start next week. The
23-year-old Prince, who will also enjoy a stint in the City before
going to Sandhurst next year, had seriously considered working for
Lord 'Spam' Vestey and even visited his 6,000-acre Stowell Park estate
in Gloucestershire earlier this year, say Royal insiders.
