Until the new apartment is ready, the only place to walk out is a public park (no garden to speak of) - which is why you see her walking the dog in Kensington Gardens. I dont think its a security issue at all. I think its jus the right time, mainly because of the changes to SAR.

Yes, I think it was just time. It seems like they enjoyed their time there, but I bet it's gotten harder and harder to work with their office and do royal duties from there.

I'm very interested to see what he does next. I'm hoping they make an announcement soon, maybe on the wedding anniversary Monday.

She can always drive over to BP and walk there. Diana used to go swimming in the palace pool, so maybe Catherine will start a course in baby swimming together with her child soon. Or is the pool no longer in use due to the cost?

William was on secondment to the RAF from his army regiment The Blues and Royals. There has been no mention of him resigning his commission therefore technically when he leaves the RAf, he goes back to his regiment. The regiment is either based at Windsor or (mainly) London.

He may leave the military all together. When he was in the Blues and Royals as a tank commander, the higher ups wouldn't let him go to a combat zone. Harry had to move to the air corps to go back to Afghanistan . So he may not want to have a desk job with the army. There is going to be void as the queen and prince Phillip slow down and William & Kate will have to fill it.

didn't rule out that possibility but there is no word as yet that he has resigned his commission therefore as it stands IF (still no official word) he leaves SAR, then he goes back to the army.

The UK are pulling out of Afghanistan - so there is no "war" situation. However, commanding a unit, discipline and planning are all good training for a future king.

No problem. It isn't really a similar article it's just the facts we were all discussing. It is confusing when the press regurgitate the same news all the time. Keep posting!

It's being mentioned in the DM that William's military announcement will come in two weeks time.

For people interested about what William does at work. On BBC iplayer, there is a 4 part show called Helicopter Rescue. Season 2 features the crew at Raf Valley including on Ft Lt Will Wales. Each episode is 1/2 hr long. Wills is in all the episodes but the first one has a longer segment where they rescue a person in a slate query and will is the captain for that one. Apparently when you leave Valley they throw you in a small water tank after your last mission. How many of them will be volunteering to throw the future king into a water tank? All of them. :)

Well it has been over 2 weeks now and still nothing on what Williams decision is about his military career. I thought we were going to know what he was doing by now. Any new information out there?

It's been over a year since we "we're going to know". This years rumours started by saying January, then March, then end of April etc etc.

The image of them living simple, fairly normal lives with no staff disn't last for very long. Both their new residences will need many, many staff.

It never was intended to be for more than a few years. Actually I think it was until William's stint at Anglesy ended. It remains to be seen what the size of their staff will be at KP and Anmer Hall.

It was shocking at the time that William was going to transfer to the RAF and train to be a SAR pilot. Everybody was saying he was going to leave the forces after his rotation thru the army and attachments to the raf and navy. He has been in the forces longer than most people thought went he went in.

Isn't it interesting that we still have not heard officially what William is going to do moving forward?

We were sure he would announce in December, then by February, etc. I admire him for the way he carries on while playing his cards very close to the vest. He simply refuses to stir up the media.

My thoughts exactly. We were waiting and waiting to find out and look, we are still waiting. Why would there be a delay in announcing what his intentions are? Is he waiting for Catherine to have the baby first? Maybe he has not even made a decision yet. Hmm.
