William very well could have chosen not to attend and stay home with his wife and his beautiful family. The fact that he has chosen to attend the ANZAC service tells the world that he takes these things seriously. He wants to do what he's been born to do. He has a deep respect for those that have served and given the ultimate sacrifice in war. Its the proof in the pudding to a lot of people that have called William "lazy" and "work shy"

Its also just a couple of hours out of the day. Westminster Abbey is not that far removed from Kensington Palace. He'll be home most likely before the older kids get home from school. He's not abandoning his family to go on a foreign tour or anything like that. He's going to a church service then home again.

All is well.

THE DUKE OF CAMBRIDGE WILL OPEN LONDON BRIDGE STATION

Wednesday 9th May 2018

The Duke of Cambridge will officially open London Bridge Station on Wednesday 9th May.

The Duke will arrive at London Bridge Station by train. He will be met by the Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP and Mr Mark Carne, Chief Executive of Network Rail. The Duke will proceed on foot to the escalators which descend into the new station concourse.

His Royal Highness will meet groups of apprentices, project leaders and long term staff involved in the redevelopment project.

He will proceed across the concourse to meet architects and view the model of the new station before taking his seat for the official opening ceremony. At the conclusion The Duke will unveil a plaque to mark the official opening of London Bridge Station.

London Bridge Station has been redeveloped in a five-year £1billion transformation programme which has created has two-thirds more space for passengers, enabling almost twice as many passengers to use Britain’s fourth busiest station every day. Work began in 2012 with the removal of the old train shed and now for the first time in its history, all 15 platforms at London Bridge are accessible from one central point, simplifying the layout of the station for passengers.

The huge, street level concourse is the largest in the United Kingdom, and is roughly the size of the pitch at Wembley Stadium. Work also included a major track upgrade, a new rail underpass at Bermondsey and platform conversions and extensions, all of which have enabled a 30 per cent increase in train capacity. The development is also helping to regenerate the local areas of Bermondsey and Southwark through public access north to south through the station and hundreds of jobs created with the creation of 80 new station shops, cafés and restaurants.

Prince William travelled by train to the station, where he was greeted on the platform by Transport Secretary Chris Grayling and Network Rail Chief Executive Mark Carne.

He was also met by crowds of well-wishers who lined the recently-completed station concourse in celebration of the station's huge transformation.

He will later meet groups of apprentices, project leaders and long term staff involved in the revamp project.

The programme has almost doubled capacity at the station, creating two-thirds more space for passengers.

The Duke of Cambridge will attend The Manchester Arena National Service of Commemoration on 22nd May, marking one year since the attack on the Manchester Arena.

The Duke of Cambridge is to join Theresa May for the memorial ceremony at Manchester Cathedral on the afternoon of May 22, including the planned national silence at 2.30pm.

An invited congregation, including the families of those who lost their lives, first responders and civic leaders, will gather to remember the 22 people who died and the many more who were injured in the blast.

The service is invitation-only due to limited space, but is also set to be broadcast on a big screen in nearby Cathedral Gardens.

On Tuesday 15th May The Duke of Cambridge will join the crew of @DIYSOS on a major project to support people affected by the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower.

The @BBCOne show, hosted by @MrNickKnowles, is building a new community centre and replacing a boxing club destroyed by the fire. The final shows will be broadcast in two parts later this year.

The Duke will visit the new site in Ladbroke Grove, joining people who have volunteered their time and expertise to complete the project. He will meet with @MrNickKnowles and the @DIYSOS crew, join one of the volunteer teams and meet local residents affected by the fire.

I love DIYSOS; it's such a great programme and the best thing is seeing the families' reactions at the end. I'm glad that William is getting involved (I remember Harry helped in a project for a former soldier with his Walking With the Wounded charity); I'll make sure to watch.
