How sad. I love this picture of William- he looks very much like the young Paul Newman.

I always thought this grant of the Order of the Thistle, while a sign of approval, is a 30th birthday present, much like Charles got promoted for his birthday gift. It allows HM to acknowledge William, but I don't think it necessarily gives the appearance of slowing down.

I read the article in the DM that talked about this. Very moving, and sad. While watching the wedding, I thought about the fact that the person in his life that had such an impact on him wasn't there to see him marry the love of his life. It was a very bitter-sweet moment for him, I'm sure. Thank you for sharing this article.

I couldn't agree more. You said it beautifully.

I don't know if this article has been posted or not. I'm glad that William and Catherine want to have little ones soon. They'll be wonderful parents.

O.k. Its over and basically William is not saying a thing about baby plans. He loves his granny very much as does Harry. What a wonderful program.

I wonder how much longer we have to wait once the Jubilee is safely over. Catherine does not look pregnant yet but things like that can change over night... Wish them both so much luck!

I wouldn't talk about my sex life with my wife on television either.

I thought William was pretty candid about his military and royal commitments becoming harder to juggle. It seems to me a pretty clear indication that he will be out in 2013 when his current service term is up. Full-time royal duty based in London, living at their newly refurbished apartment in KP, and Kate expecting baby number one: doesn't sound like a bad proposition to me for next year!

'Middle-aged' Prince William enjoys a night out with close friend Guy Pelly
Quote:
Prince Harry has often joked that his brother has become decidedly middle-aged since his wedding to Kate Middleton last year. The Royal couple are said to prefer nights in front of the TV watching their favourite DVDs and eating home-cooked meals at their Anglesey home rather than enjoying a night on the tiles. So it was rather surprising to see William enjoying an evening out with close friend Guy Pelly at a private member's club in Mayfair.

Stupid as usual from DM. When in Angelsey the Prince is on duty and therefore cannot drink. And meeting up with old friends when in London seems a natural thing to do. I also note (again) the sly (implied) comments about the relationship in the Cambridge marriage. So it's nasty and stupid.

I don't see any sly comments about the marriage? Unless you mean the one about Catherine not being there which is just an obvious statement.
What's wrong with the DM telling it like it is? William prefers nights in and we haven't seen him out in a while. We wouldn't know if he goes out in Anglesey or not.

Click on the "worst rated" comments - some pretty unpleasant ones there.
On the whole, the article itself wasn't a particularly bad or negative one.

When newspapers emphasise that a man is on a night out with his mates without his wife, the implication is that he might get up to something untoward. It's not said outright, but the unspoken suggestion is that men can't be trusted when they're out drinking without their wives as chaperones.

To me I see the scenario like this: In the morning/afternoon William Harry and Kate went to the wedding. They possibly met up with old friends there. William decided to get together with them. Harry and Kate may have possibly been tired so William went and the other two went back home. Nothing too worrying IMO

Absolutely!
Another implication is that the marriage is in trouble; note the comments about how well Kate and Harry get along?

They are far from innocent, imo.
Furthermore, Guy Pelly (fairly or not) has a bit of a wild reputation and may be perceived as leading the princes into trouble.

All in all, not a bad day's work from the DM!
