Daniel Day-Lewis is knighted by Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge at Buckingham Palace | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Yesterday, he revealed that he needed to put Christmas bells in Prince George's pocket in a bid to keep up with him.

Today, the Duke of Cambridge was back on the hunt for parenting tips as he made a series of investitures at Buckingham Palace, actor Daniel Day-Lewis among them.

Mr Day-Lewis, 57, was knighted by Prince William during the ceremony in recognition of the triple Oscar winner's services to acting.

The man looks as if he's been doing it all his life- regal, yet approachable at the same time. No offense to HM- if I didn't know better I'd think he was the King! And not wishing her or Charles ill- can't wait till he is!And so handsome in his RAF uniform. I really like when the Duke does an investiture- heck I like anything he does!
The lady in red- that hat- eek!
And congrats to DDL. Really liked Lincoln!

Daniel Day-Lewis is a great actor. One of the best of his generation. It seems like every year he's nominated for a bunch of awards.

I think William's height attributes to his regal bearing. For example King Felipe looks more majestic than King Willem-Alexander.

I agree even though W-A is a tall man like Felipe I believe him to be more regal as well.

I find the height debate interesting. No one says that Queen Margrethe is more regal than Queen Elizabeth and she has to be a good 6-8 ins taller.

The King of Jordon is very regal

On a personal note, as someone who is 5'2", I find these comments to be "heightist"

ROFL. :))

In complete agreement regarding William.

As someone who is also a member of the 'short club', I tend to find your last observation quite amusing (in a good way) .

I beg to differ. We are not short!! We are vertically challenged!!

Glad to see one of my very favourite actors finally add Sir to his name. Although...If I had to see that one scene from There Will Be Blood used ad nauseum during that year's Award Season where his character was howling about abandoning his boy one more time, I was going to gouge out both my ears and eyes and scream!!!

Sigh...William sure does look so very good in Uniform. :)

William do look very kingly in uniforms and performing Investitures. His wife looked very Queen like last night.

Looking at the side view of William, his Windsor (genetic, not hair) roots are showing so much that I thought he resembled his Uncle Edward a lot. Definitely cuts a fine figure in a uniform. Then again, I think William looks good in just about anything.

Both W&K have stepped up recently and have shown us that they are very much the royal personages that they are.

Very intersting note on height, I find that William's grandmother, Queen Elizabeth to be much more regal then any other queen out there.
And being someone who is 4'11", I think that height is just a matter of mind, if you don't mind, then it doesn't matter(got that from a small saying I framed and put in my BR to remind me that being short is okay...).

And William does look every inch the Kind today, and it is great to see him and Catherine back out again ............

I think the height is more of a problem for a guy than a women if they are short. Until there is a point of reference you can't tell how short or tall someone is. So Tom Cruise is surrounded by short people on a movie we can't tell. Him standing next to Nicole Kidman -wow he's short.

William has the plus that he is relatively tall and you throw in the uniform which makes it more impressive. Wills is 6' 3" when he meets Lebron 6'8" at the NBA game in NYC , King James is going to 5 inches on W and almost a foot on K (she might have couple of inch heels)

LOL. I just meant if someone's going to be above others in station it helps if they're above them in height as well. Sets the mood.

I have always felt that once a child grows taller than their parent. The parent loses a little of their authoritarian air.

BTW, I really like this Angry Birds project William is involved in. Have to reach the younger crowd on environmental issues.

Nah, not happening. My 5'5" sister just has to look at her two 6' plus sons and it could stop a train in it's tracks . . . and they're both in their 30's!

But back to Angry Birds, I think it is only natural that they should reach out to the young and technologically inclined. It is a medium both he and young kids, even very young kids, are fluent with.

Chatham House Prize 2014 Award Ceremony, with The Duke of Cambridge


Yahoo News UK
https://uk.news.yahoo.com/william-ho...2.html#RiC2uf5
Quote:
The proud parents of philanthropist Melinda Gates watched on while the Duke of Cambridge presented her with an award in recognition of her humanitarian work tackling poverty and poor health in the developing world.

William awarded her the Chatham House Prize during a ceremony at the Royal United Services Institute and Banqueting House in Whitehall, central London.

The Duke roared with laughter when he was inadvertently introduced as his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, to a reception full of distinguished guests from the worlds of politics, business and public health.
Melinda Gates presented with Chatham House Prize by Prince William | Royal | News | Daily Express
Quote:
Prince William handed the award over to Mrs Gates for her work tackling poverty and poor health in the developing world.

The philanthropist, who is married to former Microsoft boss Bill Gates, was praised by the prince for her "vision, commitment and unstinting generosity".

Presenting her with the prize - a crystal award and a scroll signed by the Queen, who is patron of the institute - William said: "Civil society, whether in the form of business, academic institutions, NGOs (non-governmental organisations) or philanthropic organisations, play a critical role in shaping international relations and in working for a fairer, more peaceful and healthier world.

That is... priceless! LOL!
Illustrates 3 of the many reasons why I love William.
1- When he smiles or laughs the world lights up, and seems better, and you get a good feeling inside. A feeling I can't find a word for. And that's just from looking at pictures of the man- never met him - wish I could.

2- His extraordinary ability to put people at their ease, his sense of humor, and ability to have fun! I'm sure the MC was very grateful for those abilities tonight! He'd need them if he was to meet me- for about 5 seconds. Once the ice was broken, I wouldn't be nervous. But for 5 seconds- wow! If he could put me at ease( and just by looking at pics I know he could, cause I just get this feeling that if he walks into a room ever at a event, and I'm there then I want to take my wheelchair over and get in the front of the line and chat- usually that's so not me. I love to chat, but I get scared and clam up with new people, if he can do that with me, he can do so with anyone) But back to the MC. They were obviously nervous tonight, but W instantly put them at ease.
He could have made a big deal out of the mistake, and embarrassed the person. Instead, he took it with his great sense of humor. It's more important to him that people have fun, rather than formality and protocol and what gets said all the time.And it's OK to tell jokes- as long as they are not insulting, and setting is appropriate. The man knows how to go with the flow. Love that.

3 . The man looks good in a tux.

I think I may have written a novel- LOL!

And I am in line to buy that novel your going to write. Everything you said about Prince William I second that with a big hug to you. He does remind me of someone though and she is looking down with such pride and love at her son.......and yes he looks fabulous in a tux, that should be his uniform of the day, every day.........

Ladies, I agree with the both of you. William has a very uncanny ability to put people at ease. I know this for a fact due to a very. very special young lady I've worked with who had the pleasure of meeting him. He is what Rose said, and probably more. Our world is a better place because of people like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
