He's not only stepping up, he's also standing up.
I agree!

Well said . I couldn't agree more.

I think this is the pattern we will see over the next few years whilst he works in East Anglia. You will see periods of flurry, with quite a few engagements, and then periods when he will focus on the Air Ambulance job.

I think so too. One thing that struck me as interesting is that from reading the article on lobbying for funds for air ambulances, it occurred to me that this has been an ongoing, behind the scenes kind of thing for a while and has finally bore fruit. Another good example of things that go on that we have no clue about.

Charity’s film to raise awareness about Ebola in West Africa wins support of Prince William | Ely News
Quote:
A film produced with the help of a Cambridgeshire man to raise awareness about the devastating Ebola situation in West Africa has received support from Prince William.

Colin Stevens, from Ely, is an associate producer at Purple Field Productions – a charity which makes films and videos for educational and humanitarian purposes.

He and the charity have been working with the Future View Film Group, which is made up of young people aged 18 to 30 from Sierra Leone.

Despite witnessing terrible events and losing friends and relatives, the group is dedicated to creating films that can help their community and has made an educational music video to raise awareness about the tragic Ebola situation in their country.

In a YouTube video launched by the Palace, Prince William says he is watching the Ebola situation with "great concern" and he expresses support for the group of young filmmakers.

I think someone should take a candid picture of William right about now. It probably would look like he had a goofy grin with smears of cherry, raspberries, pumpkin and other such goodies all over his face.

He's got his fingers into a lot of pies lately.

The Duke of Cambridge is backing a polar explorer’s attempt to complete Sir Ernest Shackleton’s unfinished journey to the South Pole.

Prince William has become patron of Lieutenant Colonel Henry Worsley’s third Antarctic expedition – the 2015/16 Shackleton Solo Challenge.

Sir Ernest Shackleton’s departure from Plymouth on his ill-fated quest to cross Antarctica is legendary in the annals of history.

Shackleton and his crew boarded their ship, the Endurance, at Millbay Docks in Plymouth on August 8, 1914, setting out to become the first team to cross the continent via the South Pole.

I'm wondering if Wills gave the heads up to look for the ice castle loo that has been built in the area previously.

In a message of support to all the young finalists, HRH The Duke of Cambridge, President of BAFTA, said: “I encourage you – our stars of tomorrow – to keep exploring your creativity and see where it takes you. A successful career in one of the fastest growing and most creative industries in this country is very much a possibility, regardless of your background or your gender. Judging by the potential you have already shown, your future, and the future of British games, is very bright indeed.”

The Duke also praised the “unrivalled access to the skills and expertise of top industry professionals” that the YGD initiative offers all year round.

Patron of the National Memorial Arboretum Remembrance Centre

Quote:
A £15.7 million visitor's centre will be an "exciting new addition" to the National Memorial Arboretum, the Duke of Cambridge has said.

Building work on the memorial garden's Remembrance Centre has already started, but today there was a ceremonial breaking of the ground.

Prince William, the project's patron, said: "I am delighted that work is now to begin on building the new visitor centre.

"The Arboretum is a place of sanctuary, but also a place of education and those who visit deserve to be looked after when they are here."

The Prince was unable to attend in person, but had his words read aloud by another supporter, the TV star Dame Penelope Keith.

He added: "I am grateful to the National Memorial Arboretum management team and the Appeal Council for working so hard to make this visitor centre possible.

"In just over a year's time, the project will be complete - an exciting new addition to this very special place - and I look forward to seeing it in person."

Bafta’s Scholarship Programme

Quote:
A WIDNES student and budding film composer has been awarded a grant of nearly £10,000 for a scholarship to complete his studies

Christopher Schlechte-Bond, 22, is one of three beneficiaries to be named a Prince William Scholar – named after the Duke Of Cambridge – as part of the annual Bafta scholarship scheme.

The Duke Of Cambridge has congratulated the Widnes student and the other two recipients of the award – Hosea Ntaborwa and Shivani Shah – on their achievements.

He said: “As president of Bafta, I am proud of the opportunities for progression that the scheme offers.

“I would like to congratulate this year’s recipients Hosea, Christopher and Shivani – and all the new Bafta scholars – and wish them all the best in their future careers.”

The Prince William Scholars’ fees are funded by Warner Bros and the three will receive a short, funded work placement with a group of companies in the UK, a mentor from the film giant, and invitations to a series of industry masterclasses.
