The Welsh that he did attend was part of his offical duties.
We went to Wales vs Scotland as Vice Patron of WRU. They really expect to only go to Walsh games during the Six Nations on his own time I mean he is English. The game he attended this Sunday with Kate and his brother was in England.

That is part of the problem here - William was supporting the English team when the Welsh team, of which he is Vice-Patron was playing elsewhere.

The RF never hide their preference for the English sports teams, except Anne and her long time support of the Scottish teams.

In 2005 there were complaints in Australia that the Queen of Australia supported England in the Ashes and this is an ongoing problem.

It is just more noticeable in something like the Six Nations Rugby where the home countries play each other and the various royals clearly show a preference for England. This also happens in football (soccer to our US friends).

It is not possible to be British in these sports, most of the time, because there is no specific British team, except when the British Lions tour (the combined Rugby team from the home nations). When they compete in the World Cup later this year they will compete as England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland (made up of players from both the Republic and Northern Ireland by the way - so not British but Irish).

This is one of a handful of great examples of things not to envy about the royal family. Every little action - going to a rugby match, or not going -- is analyzed and the press will talk about the "controversies" being stirred up by showing too much favortism to a group or to one organization while ignoring other patronages. I would say that I wish the press would ease up and stop criticizing them so excessively, but they've been doing it so long, and part of me thinks it just goes with the territory. When you have such a position as representing entire groups, organizations, and a whole nation, you just have to be totally PC all the time, even in private because private discussions, as we have seen with Prince William among others, can and are leaked on occasion. I always wonder who the anonymous friends are in these articles, if they are the best friends like Guy Pelly or just sort of marginal members of the Highgrove set.

Funny pic! Because Will is much taller than the others His mother also was very tall. I can remember that I was surprised when I saw her dresses in Kensington Palace. . . Does anyone know Diana's exact height? Or William's?

I've seen Diana's height as 5 feet 10 inches or possibly 11, she was taller than Charles.

Prince William was shown in the broadcast from Wembley Stadium a short time ago meeting the players and officials in the FA Cup Final.

I think that's a bit of an overstatement. He appears to be happy, but I wouldn't say he's having "the time of his life".

Thanks for the pics from Wembley. I think it is great that William is continuing to take on more duties as he gets older.

The man looked quite bored. Perhaps he had other things on his mind.

Wales lost by quite a large margin, it wasn't a good game for a Welsh rugby supporter to watch!
