Until this post, I didn't know that this William Shawcross is the same guy that wrote the authorized version of the Queen Mother's biography.

Thank you Lady Finn for sharing the translations and the links to the articles. Not surprised to see that one of William's first engagements includes an organization that links sports with support for disadvantaged youth.

President Sauli Niinistö and mrs Jenni Haukio host the dinner for William at the President's residence Mäntyniemi. The finnish press is mostly interested in our pregnant First Lady (only a week to the Independence Day reception). There are about 50 guests at the dinner.

Totally off topic, but I’m thrilled to see Mrs. Haukio and that her pregnancy is progressing well. When is she due?

Lol William seems pretty excited to me. He and Harry always like to roast each other. I think it’s hilarious.

Love the pictures with Prince Daniel. Glad to see them forming a friendship (hopefully).

He comments about George are adorable
