Such sad news. A terrible coincidence that 2 of Prince William's mentors within the Armed Forces have been cut down in their prime.

This only serves to remind me just how dangerous the armed forces are (both in times of combat, but also back at home, where they seem to have their fair share of accidents). I'm sure that one cannot have a completely cautious attitude and succeed in the military.

Has William gone back to work yet? So that would mean that he and Catherine are in Anglessey right now and will be there for awhile?
I've always wondered how William's full time job deals with his part time job and if he is given many days off, more than other pilots.

I would assume they're back in Angelsey now.

There's some conjecture about how William's work schedule is organised. We know that he does get some extra leave to undertake certain royal duties (he'll apparently be given special leave to complete his overseas tour on behalf of the Queen later this year), but otherwise he usually works normal hours. I would bet that special leave is unpaid.

When you're working 12 hour shifts though, you can often find yourself with several days off in a row through normal shift patterns.

Prince William is mourning his instructor. The instructor's traffic death I hope William has learned to be less dare devil on his own fast motorcycle.

Has he been reckless or irresponsible? I must have missed that. I just thought that people were tut, tut, tutting about the inherent dangers of motorcycles rather like they did to a young Charles when he took up jumping out of perfectly serviceable aircraft!

Yes Prince William has been reckless.The Prince got a very fast and expensive motorcycle. William tries to lose is body guards by going very fast to get away from them.

What I got out of the article was that William love the thrill of the speed.

MARG think about what he does for a living. He love the excitement of rescuing people in very tough conditions.

Could it be that Prince Charles is secretly stocking the Anglesey garage where Wills stores his bike with those wire-eating mice?

Like almost every military person doing a job that commands total concentration and dedication, William loves his job and gets satisfaction from doing it well. I am sorry but I do not find this "reckless" and certainly not "irresponsible"! He is well trained and certainly well able to do such a job.

Having said this, he might get run over crossing the road when coming out of the supermarket because in the end, none of us are promised tomorrow.

It would perhaps be best suited in the British Royal Family thread.
But my, what a wonderful article - and coming from Express no less!
Prince Charles sounds like a wonderful man and a very proud father.

There was a similar article from 'The Telegraph', and I posted it in the Prince's 'Current Events' thread. This was a very enjoyable read. The interview will be very interesting, if it's anything like the little snippets we got from this article. I can only imagine the banter between Charles and his sons . Would love to be a fly on the wall for one of those conversations.

I completely agree with your sentiments regarding Prince Charles. He's very proud of his sons, and loves them to pieces. It's great that they can enjoy a good rapport, even when 'the boys' are all grown up, and starting their own families.

Sorry I was confused whether to put this here or in the books section.

If William really did learn from watching what his parents went through, and recognized that he needed/wanted a woman who was not like his mother, kudos to him. My fiancé chose his aunt and uncle to be role models instead of turning to his own parents, which would seem natural. His aunt and uncle have a healthy happy marriage.

Thanks for posting that ghost_night. That article was really long and despite reading various books on William, Charles, and Diana I did get a new perspective from this article. Unfortunately I feel it was too anti-Diana; she definitely wasnt a saint like her friends try to portray her as, but I just feel the article was too skewed against her.
Daria u do bring up some good points, despite William being 30 and Harry being in his late 20's this is still their mother and hearing either parent be dragged through the mud must really hurt.

I think this is something those who are in the press completely forget, or ignore, because their goal is to make a buck. I too felt that the article was indeed too harsh on Diana. She was by no means a saint, but I for one cannot see her smacking her children. I feel that the issues that developed during the marriage and had a profound effect on William and Harry are a lot deeper than any article or book could describe. I'm not trying to be dramatic, but just saying that we will never know the full extent of what went on behind closed doors. I will say that both boys loved both of their parents. Their grief for their mother was evident when they appeared in public days before the funeral, and during the funeral procession. It's one thing I'll never be able to forget. This kind of grief stems from very deep love, and cannot be orchestrated. They also loved their father, and that can be seen through their interactions as well as pictures. I think it's tragic that any child should have to be a witness to such an atmosphere at home, and watch two people that are supposed to be examples of stability basically crumble to pieces.
