It's good to see Kate and William out and about. Looking forward to their two engagements tomorrow.

Not far enough. He wore a blue crushed velvet suit during William and Kate's recent visit to Copenhagen. He looked ridiculous.

Well, good for Mary! A new reason to love her.

He gave up his purple velvet suit - it must be love!

Might this be a thread-nap - ya think?

Personally I prefer the single breasted suit on William, since his frame is not the same as Charles' who obviously looks better with double-breasted suits... Double-breasted doesn't always look better, it depends on the man.
Not quite. Velvet suits still make regular appearances apparently. January this year:

Not to mention his red trousers:

As I PM'd soapstar, Mary can only do so much!
The red pants have their own fan club/following I'm afraid but Frederik certainly doesn't wear them nor his funky suits (the only way I can describe them) as often as he used to.
Though I'm not personally a fan of the velvet suits, I love that Frederik isn't afraid to do "something different." IMO better than dressing the same for years with no differentiation, i.e. same old grey or navy two button suits and the common tuxedo

Apologies to the Mods for going off-topic

This is a good tactic. Education is the best way to gain support (or antipathy) for a cause. I hope he's successful.

My sentiments exactly.

The interview is on BBC now, I'm surprised by the way he speaks. The interviewer says 'I can tell this makes you angry' and he replies 'yes it makes me very angry'. But I just don't hear it, he sounds like he's reading a speech that's been prepared. I don't hear any passion.

I just saw it too and had the opposite thought completely. William's not one to let his guard down, particularly in front of the media. But you could tell he loves these animals and Africa generally.

I think the "least royal" has to go to either Harry or Zara. Harry if we're talking titles.

^I don't know when he has time to do all these things, but he gets it done! Here at some articles about William's video message calling for countries to pledge to end the ivory trade and the last article is about the impact it had particularly in Thailand. Good for The Duke of Cambridge!

No offence meant but whilst I know William has a real job, and he works so many long shifts, I'm pretty sure if he's got enough spare time to pop over to a friends wedding he can take 5 minutes out of his day to make a little video. I imagine they were done weeks ago, due to the setting.

I very much dough, that doing a 'little Videomessage' is done in 5min. I can assure you that much from my professional background as a PR-Consultant. Even if he is not involved in the production and 'only' does the speaking part, he will have to work the speech through several times, and doing the vid several times over I guess. No way to do it in under 3hours, very possible more.

IMO, if it is an issue he cares deeply about, he would have had some input into the content and form of the message as well.

Most of the work on the speech can be done at home, when he has free time. He doesn't work 24/7 I suppose. Making the video may require the said 3 hours at least which means he probably did it in a day free of RAF work and still had many hours in that day to work on other things. With a bit of organization, he can do all. It's not surprising at all.

I didn't mean to say its surprising per se, but I'm proud of him for working a full-time job and still trying to perform his duties as a royal. He basically has two jobs. There are a lot of jours that go in to being a patron and royal. My father has always had two jobs(he's a workaholic) and even though his job as a firefighter is shift work, it's not so simple as to she on his off-time he has all the one in the work. Plus, you add William needing to travel and its pretty admirable. I don't want to down play that. He deserves to be applauded just like Harry or my father or anyone else.
