I hope this will be available via internet for those of us who do not have BBC. I'm very intrigued to hear what William and others scheduled to speak have to say.

Was just about to post that article. In any case, I'd love to read the full story. I'm sure William and Harry have a great deal to share about their grandmother, and their perspective is personal and to me, a lot more interesting than something that would come from a political figure.

In so many ways, it must be difficult to share one's grandmother with the world, and to share her intensely with one's countrymen. It's very hard to face the end of a grandparent's life (at least within close and loving families), and we all like to pretend it will never happen. When one's grandmother is, well, an institution as well - it must seem nigh on impossible that she would one day be gone.

After all, the boys' mother is gone, but their grandmother, the Queen has lived on and been a pillar for them. The two princes are no strangers to grief, and it shows in their words and deeds and their interviews.

Hopefully, they will share more as the years go by, and perhaps contribute to HM's official biography (or something of that sort). I think they'll be glad if they do, and I think it's a new sort of historic role for young royals to take on.

I think it is wonderful that we all have the chance to know what the Queen is like through the words of her grandsons. I think they love her and respect her not just as a grandmother but as someone to look up to for her knowledge and wisdom. It is hard to face the reality that at some point we will bare witness ro the end of this great woman. In the meantime we can get to know the woman who has stayed true to her word of giving her life to the service of her people. She is quite a woman. I cant wait to read more of what the grandsons have to say. :)

I love how Harry talks about the DOE being HM's rock and that his mere presence makes things easier for her. Once again shows how much they love each other. I hope everyone gets to experience that love, it is so beautiful.

Posts about Prince William's posting to the Falkland Islands have been moved to the Prince William's service in the Royal Air Force thread.

Mice problem -perhaps Lupo needs a kitty friend to help protect Will's bike.

Good solution; every farmhouse needs a cat to keep the rodent population down.

Prince William - good enough to eat!
Prince William's looking very tasty: 20ft mural of royal made out of liquorice
Quote:
Many female admirers think Prince William is a bit tasty - but never more so than today. A 20ft mural of the prince has been made using more than 3,000 pieces of liquorice and took four artists over five hours to build. Shoppers in Manchester were treated to the mural when it went on display in Spinningfields. It was commissioned by Finnish sweet company Panda Liquorice to mark the Duke of Cambridge's 30th birthday in June.

Certainly better than the likeness they got on official commemorative coins!

This is such a smart way for firms to get some free publicity. I had never heard of this Finnish sweet company but make a mural of Prince William out of liquorice and suddenly it's getting coverage in national British newspapers. To buy that kind of coverage would cost many thousands of pounds.

Maybe this company should make chocolate commemorative coins since they did such a good job with the licorice. The resemblance is certainly much better!

Either that, or help the other people get the image right.

Such a tragedy. I am sad for William and RAF.
