Glad that his fundraising has been successful and hope he'll make a full recovery.

A message from The Duke of Cambridge following the tragic news about Henry Worsley

Tragic end to Shackleton Solo Expedition | Endeavour Fund

Quote:
The Duke of Cambridge, who was patron of the expedition, expressed his immense sadness at the explorer's death, saying he and Prince Harry had lost a friend.

He paid tribute to Henry Worsley's "selfless commitment" to his fellow servicemen and women, and pledged to make sure his family receive all they support they need.

The trek was raising money for the Endeavour Fund, a charity managed by the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

William said in a statement: "Harry and I are very sad to hear of the loss of Henry Worsley. He was a man who showed great courage and determination and we are incredibly proud to be associated with him.

"Even after retiring from the Army, Henry continued to show selfless commitment to his fellow servicemen and women, by undertaking this extraordinary Shackleton solo expedition on their behalf.

"We have lost a friend, but he will remain a source of inspiration to us all, especially those who will benefit from his support to the Endeavour Fund.

"We will now make sure that his family receive the support they need at this terribly difficult time."

You Will Bafta do without me: Prince William snubs awards ceremony again

--------------------------------------------------------------
This same story gets recycled every year. Supposedly unnamed 'industry figures' are fuming William doesn't go to the red carpet awards show.

William does events with the charity arm of BAFTA throughout the year. William and Kate have done plenty of red carpets when required but its not really William's role with BAFTA.

It's a member of the Charities Forum and works closely with the Royal Foundation.
In fact it was BAFTA that filmed Kate's children's mental health week video. Kensington Palace tweeted it's thanks.

Here are links to BAFTA's charities which William is actively involved in

Spends his valuable time with the charity arm. Stays at home with the kids so as to not steal the limelight. JMO.

First thought - is he on shift? The press have been busy telling us that he is working hard in order to free up time for the India tour and HMQs birthday celebrations.

Second thought - just a load of old rubbish put out by disaffected press who have it down on the Cambridges at the present.

Third thought - regardless - recycle bin!

The BAFTA Awards recognises the commercial side of the industry. Its like the Oscars. William did attend in 2014 but that was to present Helen Mirren with a lifetime achievement award.

Like I stated, William works closely with BAFTA's charities but he doesn't walk the red carpet and hang with celebs just for the sake of it.

I will add, when he did attend in 2014, the DM had a fit about it

To be honest, it's an event that I would like to see William attend more often. Also, it wouldn't hurt to take his wife every now and then.

I agree Dman. As a Patron of BAFTA it is important he be visible, and not simply behind the scenes in their non-profit side. The film industry is an important business in the UK. People who criticize him for attending an event for one of his patronages, can live with it. It's not like he is chartering a jet and flying to Hollywood for the Oscars or something.

But if he is busy working a shift in prep for India that is understandable.

He has attended the Film Awards 3 times and appeared in a taped tribute for Lord Attenborough since 2010 when he was named President. The initial time was 2010 to announce he is taking over Presidency. Two other trip to present Helen Mirren and Vanessa Redgrave fellowships. Sidney Poitier is getting that award this year but can't be there due to poor health.

William did several Bafta things last year. They had events in China and in the UK during the Chinese state visit, young gamers showcase in Scotland, the Shawn the Sheep charity forum with Kate & Harry.

It's not like he has been to every FA cup finals or every Welsh Rugby match and totally ignored BAFTAS.

Wales played Ireland in Ireland. He definitely was not going to that one. England plays Wales at Twickenham on March 12. Maybe he goes to that one instead of going to Cardiff.

I think KP would announced by now if he was going. When he goes to Wales there is more than just the match usually a event for the injured players fund. They went to the oil refinery before the one match when Kate was pregnant. If he goes to London to watch he can just watch. In Cardiff he has to go as the Vice Patron so the helicopter trip is justified thus KP announces engagements before match.

I suppose because rugby is not one major event, it is how many games in a season?? He certainly cant be expected to attend every game. He and Kate attended the final game in Wales against Australia in October. While BAFTA is a huge organization and does a lot of great work, they have one major event that is the jewel of their season. It is far more noticeable when he misses it then when he misses one of multiple rugby games.

this isn't just Rugby! This is the 6 Nations Championship - England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France and Italy. it is BIG! Wales will want him to go to at least one game.

This is like the World Series - but it does include other countries!

Baftas has multiple awards shows not just the film one. There is one for TV, children, gaming, one in Wales, one in Scotland. If William goes he isn't going to just sit in the audience. He needs to do something during the show. Plus how many people already complain on how William and Kate just do fun events not real work so hanging out with Hollywood A listers at an awards show every year wouldn't be a good image to project.

Not saying that he should attend every year, but I think he should go maybe once every two years and take his wife. One of those events where you take a date. It's a big deal to be President of the BAFTA's.

From 2010 to 2016 is 7 awards shows, he been to 3 and appeared on tape for 1. That's about once every 2 years.

After the early part of their marriage, the Cambridges going to black tie events together has dwindled off. William hasn't gone to the women hedge fund dinner when it's Kate's charity been honored. Kate hasn't gone to Tusk Awards recently. The last time I can think of them both going to a black tie charity thing together is the Natural History Museum Film premiere with Richard Attenborough.
