When I was in the service, we had to salute whenever we were in uniform whether in a parade or not. Is British military different?

He can't even apply to be in the SAS until he has completed his training and they are not going to alter that for anyone, even a future King!
Thought I read today in another article, I believe the Scotsman, that Wills was headed for the Welsh Guards. Are they SAS? Anyone?

The non commisioned ranks ie. a Warrant Officer (class 1 & 2), Staff Sergeant, Sergeant, Corporal, Lance Corporal, Private have to salute a commisioned officer regardless, when they or you are in uniform.

When you salute, you are saluting the Queens commission, not the person, you have to be wearing your uniform and they have to be wearing theirs (showing the Queens commission) therefore if they or you are not in uniform, you do not salute. However if you are in uniform but not wearing your head-dress ie. cap, beret, you do not salute but, come to attention if approached by an officer.

I'm sorry, I don't know anything about US military, apart from their PX's are brilliant!

No. He could of course apply after he has had some actual military service! It is not a regiment you can apply for, straight from training!

Yes, Charles has to salute his mum, as you know, regardless of if she is in uniform but, then she is The Queen.

That will be up to William and how long he signs on for, he could of course 'buy himself out'. :)

Only for non commissioned ranks and even they can stay longer if it's a specialist 'trade' the Army or Airforce needs. I can't see William signing up for 22 years though!

Just read in another article that perhaps that Wills may be in the same regiment as Harry the Household Calvary & Royals. Anyone else hear anything else different?

Little article about Wills...

http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2006140511,00.html

This is very strange, this restaurant is my fav. It is lush, with fish in the floor and the waiters are excellent! I wonder if he went to Jaxx nightclub after - I doubt it, its rubbish!

They only realised when they read his credit card, come on! None of them recognised him and if they were so disinterested in the royal family that they didn't know what he looked like, would they have recognised the name.
Sounds like the usual Sun nonsense!

I wonder if they were in uniform. Sometimes, when people are dressed the same, the faces becomes a blur. Plus he's got a buzz cut now. It could happen.

There's some speculation (although based on palace gossip) that Prince William will soon be named a Knight of the Garter according to the Times at http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article...125212,00.html (need to scroll down page).
