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.

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?
