I'm glad that he cares about wildlife conservation. I think he gets his love of nature from his father.

And his paternal grandfather who was heavily involved with the World Wildlife Fund for many years, caring about conservation of the world's creatures long before it became fashionable - like father, like son, like grandson.

I agree with you (and cd255) he looks wonderful and at ease. Does anybody know if his ex Jessica Craig was there as I think she's involved with this charity?
I like this photo of him laughing.

I haven't seen Jecca Craig in any pictures and she wasn't mentioned in the articles but she could very well have been there. According to the website she's on the Appeal Committee for this charity. It's interesting to note that his friend James Meade is also on that committee.
Here's a link to the Tusk Trust website:

Nice website, thanks cd255. I noticed from the map in the right corner it looks like they have many projects going on in a good portion of Africa.

Prince William is an admirable man. He knows how to deal with common people and do a lot of charities. I really admire his dedication.

Portraits to benefit homeless charity, Crisis

Quote:
The image was taken by Jeff Hubbard, 54, who was homeless until a few years ago.
The 27 year-old prince took a picture of Mr Hubbard and the two portraits, or diptych, form part of a new exhibition and fundraising auction in aid of the homeless organisation Crisis, entitled A Positive View.

The exhibition is staged at Somerset House in central London and will be open to the public from tomorrow until April 5.

I think it's fantastic that he's helping these homeless charities raise money. I'm sure they really need it!

Hopefully they'll raise a bunch of $$$. I wish I could see this exhibit. Sounds interesting.

I don't see him has being dedicated to anything.

He does a bit here and there - a bit of military service, a bit of charity work, a bit of holidaying - but no dedication to anything - yet. It might come but it isn't there yet - in ten years it might be but a couple of activities don't equate to dedication to anything to me.

Well he is still young. He seems pretty dedicated to his military training and determined to make something of it.
As far as charity, he has increased his engagements (as his training allows) and is starting to get more involved with the charities that interest him (homeless, youth, etc).

I believe that it won't truly be William's time to shine until his father becomes the King. At that point, William will have a much higher public profile and we'll see more of what he's truly passionate about. If he did more public engagements now, he'd be criticized for shirking his training. If he becomes a full-time pilot, he'll be accused of shirking his public duty. But honestly, until he becomes the Duke of Cornwall, we can't expect to see a lot of him in public.

I agree, particularly as their seems to be a rise in homelessness due to these harsh times (recession).

I agree. He should try and have a look at what charities are out ther that he is interested in and could really need some help so that when the time comes, he can step up into a more active charitable role.
