I am agreeing with Ish. He needs to go all the way there. This somehow looks groomed but highly confused.

He has a good dome/good bones and will look fiiiine once his pate colors up. I come from a family heavily littered with generations of men with early baldness. Well, most of them have a small ring of hair around their ears. And all of them who shave their heads IMO are more manly and handsome looking than the others.

My godfather/great uncle was bald and built like Mr. Clean well into his late 70s. He was easily the handsomest man I have ever known.

And bald can be very freeing. I know a former chemo patient who misses the feeling of raindrops on her bare head. While I was hairless, I collected picture of me with all my bald relatives. I quite treasure them.

Prince William has laughed off suggestions he paid £180 to shave his thinning locks.

‘The Duke is very amused that anyone thinks he has enough hair to justify that kind of money!’ a source told me. At least he has a sense of humour about it!

This sounds so like him. I can see him almost rolling his eyes at those reports :P

Itís always great seeing pictures of William with kids.

I like that heís finally stopped fighting the hair situation and is working his way up to a shaved head. As someone said above, heís got good bone structure and a nicely shaped head - getting rid of the remaining hair makes him look more stylish and younger.

The Duke of Cambridge delivered the keynote speech at the Charity Commission Annual Public Meeting (APM) at the Royal Institution in London today, January 23, "discussing collaboration, compassion and trust within the charity sector".

It was so nice to hear him honor his parents and grandparents, especially his dad and The Prince’s Trust. Good job Sir!

I'm so annoyed. I haven't really posted much about Duke of Cambridge but I was so so happy that his father got a mention..,I was actually thrilled. I even put good job Sir. A few hours later, I looked on Kensington Palace twitter and saw a pic (lovely it was) of two young boys with mum, nothing of father and I thought that's deliberate. Would it have been that hard to post another? Telling to me. I then looked at Clarence House twitter, and they must have been thrilled also for they posted the part of speech honoring dad. Its so telling to me. Earlier when I first joined, I posted something and mentioned I thought William was still seething and nothing has changed my opinion. Maybe this is OT but I am disappointed Lady Nimue.

Prince William warns social media is damaging society | Daily Mail Online

Quote:
The Duke of Cambridge lambasted social media yesterday for turning Britain into a coarser 'silo society'.
He warned public debate was becoming more personal and condemned anonymous online trolls who cloak their true identities.
It follows remarks last month when the royal father-of-two took aim at social media firms for threatening the 'very nature of childhood'.
Continuing his theme in a major speech yesterday, William said: 'We all know that society is becoming, in lots of ways, more atomised and polarised.
'There is no doubt that public debate seems coarser and more personal than ever, fuelled partly by anonymity online and the commercialisation of our new

What was really significant about Duke of Cambridge's speech is his emphasis on how charities need to join together and also how the Royal Foundation tries to bring charities together on particular issues - without a royal necessarily being a patron (ie Anti-cyber-bullying campaign).

We discussed this at the end of the 2017 thread on British Royal Engagements.
I might have predicted something near to what he said today.


Regarding KP twitter and who it mentions - it mentions Diana, Charles, HMQ and DoE.

I hope you don't think I'm a troll TLLK for expressing my disappointment in the Duke of Cambridge for not posting a picture or saying I believe he's still seething. It's just my opinion. As you posted his words (the part) "there is no doubt that public debate seems coarser and more personal that ever".....well, his own words again helped form my opinion. You have to actually think of what pic to post or how many. To me, it was a deliberate slight not posting a photo of his father, that's personal. Vindictive. Ring a bell?

I don't think William actually sat down and picked out the picture to post on social media. He has staff that does that sort of thing. There is no way that I would ever think that William thinks any less of his father than he does of his mother or his grandparents or his brother.

If there's anything that William is seething about in this recent speech its the fact that more and more people are relying on social media to "talk" to other people and ever since I can remember, there's a whole lot of time where a person's online persona is totally different from what they're like face to face.
After being online for 28 years, I can attest to this fact being true. All of us here have witnessed "trolls" that come on to post vehemently against a certain person with the main goal of starting up trouble. This is what I believe that William was referring to.

I believe that William is very, very close with his father but then, that's my opinion from how I see it.

Thank you, TLLK. I wound up starting to watch it and then realized he began referencing them early in the video. Thank you. He does a very nice job in how he speaks of Charles in some detail. Never mentions Diana, just refers to 'parents'. Mentions 'grandparents' and then Philip. Gives the historical context for royal interest in charities going back to King George. Looks to me to be a nod to the men in the family, actually.

I understand, Missjersey. This mention was very heartening, like William has matured, what with being a father himself now. I would be inclined to take it as is, and not place too much on the Kensington twitter feed. William's mention was extensive.

Diana was a very possessive and jealous woman. Her 'boys' likely lived with that, trying always to placate her. Potentially any mention of 'papa' in a positive light ignited storms in Diana that had to be placated, so they are still doing that placating. I suspect there is guilt nested in there, too, like for William who was already in his teens and likely doing his push-back to 'mummy', trying to stand on his own without her smothering. I believe he openly argued with her just before her death. One can only suppose the conflict for him. This is all speculation, of course.

Bottom line is families have their dynamics The shock of losing her the way they did must have shattered deep. Who can blame them really? It is obvious that they carry scars. We can be happy that both men (finally) seem to have lucked out with their personal lives.

I think William being so direct at this time is perhaps an indication of familial healing though we will never know. It's definitely a sign of maturation. What we do know from what he said is that William is taking his position beside his father in the line of succession, and will be loyal to his father in the 'family business' of 'being royal'. That's really all we need from him, not so? The rest is personal. JMO.

He mentioned his mother once in his speech, his father four times. He spoke very movingly about his father.

Cepe, I agree with you wholeheartedly about the importance of the messages of collaboration and cooperation in the charitable sector. For several years now, collaboration with other charities has been one of the factors in whether groups get government grants in my area of the world.

Searching on the charities commission website gives a sense of the fractured nature of the charity sector. There are 264 charities with "mental health" in their name... surely some of those are doing overlapping work and could -- instead of scrapping over diminishing dollars -- work together. It would reduce overhead, which would allow more money to go to programs.

Maybe I’m over reacting folks. As I said I was so thrilled to hear him speak of his father and hoped for this for so long. I ache thinking what they went through and had to deal with growing up. I was so happy but maybe someday in the future I’ll see a dad pic posted. Baby steps. So apologies if I offended anyone. I’ll leave it here that it’s a good start!

His father is still here, with him--he has a relationship with him. His mom is gone. That is the difference.

No I don't believe that you are a troll Missjersey. IMO the reason that KP didn't post a similar photo of the brothers with Charles. (In their childhood with their father while he was on a charity visit.) is simply that one might not exist among their personal family photos. Charles didn't really take his sons along on his public duties because the boys were at school.
