Saw it live on television. Moved to tears by the beauty of the ceremony, the speeches and the wonderful pieces of music by Schuman, Handel and Beethoven! People were so happy and proud that the Duke was there, too!

Twitter is now lighting up about Will's comments on the future of the UK/Germany relationship. It was not a neutral statement, though saying "We just wanna be friends" is not that shocking.

It's good that he's extending a diplomatic hand post Brexit. The royals are used for diplomacy.

Diplomatic events such as this is going to play a big part in his future roles and he seems to really be getting comfortable with doing it. I think he did a fantastic job with the speech he made and reinforced the belief that no matter what happened politically, the UK/German alliance will remain strong.

I agree it was not a "neutral" statement, but his carefully chosen words would have been cleared with the FO / NO 10 beforehand.

His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge has visited Dusseldorf to witness a series of events to mark the 70th Anniversary of the formation of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

The state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) was established on 23rd August 1946 by the British Military Government, following the end of the Second World War, and for almost 70 years a large British military presence remained in the region playing a pivotal role during the Cold War and in the reconstruction of its area of occupation. At its peak the British component based in Germany numbered almost 200,000 people.

I would be surprised if they words were not suggested by the government. This is a very clear case of royals being used as "soft diplomacy weapons" to build bridges and smooth ground for politicians. This is a big part of the royals role, being "ponds" of the government at the time.

Prince William has sympathised with “distraught” Great British Bake Off fans – but said the show will be just as good on Channel 4.

The Duke of Cambridge revealed he has watched the hit TV show, which this week announced it will move from its BBC home to Channel 4 next year.

He today visited a youth club in Wandsworth where youngsters took part in a class to learn how to pipe vanilla butter cream onto cupcakes.

The future king tried out his cake decorating skills and said: “Mary Berry, eat your heart out – look at that.”

He turned to Patricia Nunoo, 17, a volunteer at the Caius House youth club, and said: "Not quite as elegant as yours, but it's a start."

Dancing With the Stars, take note!

Prince William stepped up to a dance challenge, trying out a new move during a visit to a youth center in London on Wednesday.

"I can never get the shoulder shiver right!" William said as he pleaded for some help with one of the moves perfected by the dance troupe, Scariofunk Dance Collective.

The relaxed royal proved he wasn't afraid to look a little silly during the impromptu performance.

The strategy, Suffolk Lives Matter, details how services across the county are working to reduce the number of suicides.

In Suffolk, 8.7 people per 100,000 died by suicide each year, compared with 8.9 per 100,000 in England as a whole.

Suicide is the third most frequent cause of death in males aged 15-49 in the county and male suicide rates are nearly three times hgher than female rates in Suffolk.

While no single organisation is responsible for preventing suicide, a range of professionals from the voluntary and charity sector, clinical commissioning groups, local councils, police, HealthWatch Suffolk, the coroner’s office and mental health services all play a crucial role.

Suffolk County Council has taken the lead on the new, joint plan.

In a statement read out by Cllr Colin Noble, Leader of Suffolk County Council, the Duke of Cambridge said: “You are all here today at Suffolk Lives Matter to help reduce the number of tragic deaths by suicide in this county and to tackle the stigma so sadly associated with this issue.

“You may know that I, along with my wife, Catherine and brother, Harry have recently launched a campaign – Heads Together – to help change the conversation around mental health.

Thanks eya! What marvelous pictures of the occasion. I think if Sir Rod was any happier, he might have exploded from the sheer joy of the occasion.

I've always liked Rod Stewart and his music and even looking at him today, the man remains "forever young".
