A Finnish shipping executive has offered Prince William his daughter's hand in marriage after the prince stepped onto a City trading floor for a charity fund-raising day.

I didn´t know where to post it,here´s an article from hello magazine-they wrote about how much money the wedding exhibition raised for charity (there are also nice pictures!):

"The gown has now no doubt secured the royal seal of approval after raising an estimated £10 million.Money raised from the exhibit will go to a charity set up by her and Prince William"

Kate Middleton takes on first royal patronage - The Times of India

"We believe that it will provide a unique opportunity for us to use our privileged position to make a real difference in the future to many areas of charitable work," the Daily Express quoted Prince William as saying.

"We feel passionately that, working closely together with those who contribute to our foundation, we can help to make a long-lasting and tangible difference," he added.

"However, Blue Heart is affiliated with the United Nations, a neutral organisation. That means Kate has been told it is not appropriate for her to publicly support it because of her close ties to the Queen – a head of state."

And so why are CP Haakon, CP Mette-Marit, CP Mary, P Caroline, GD Maria Theresa, etc. allowed to be involved with UN organisations? They all are closer to their respective monarchs aka heads of state. Doesn't make sense to me that that would be the reason given for Kate.

OR ... Katie Nicholl doesn't know jack sh*t about it. That was a very weak piece overall.

If anyone wants to look at the Prince and Princess Michael of Kent thread, Prince Michael attended a function for this organization quite recently.

Well done William! I am impressed by his commitment and that of the Duchess to help forgotten members of society. They do not just pick the glamorous charities to support.

Indeed. That's why we love, respect and admire this couple (and them as individuals too).

That sounds interesting. And promising. :)

The SkillForce article certainly had the tone of JLoP more than William himself. But of course I can let that slide.... LOL.
