Look at these photos.
Prince William defies treacherous weather to meet children at specialist school | Daily Mail Online

And these- scroll down-

After looking at that how could you call the man a bully? Don't see any bullying there. If that's your definition, you really need a new dictionary.

I've heard each making fun of the other in the past. Harry goes after William for his hair loss and "dull life." William teases Harry about his girlfriends.

Each takes turns teasing the other, but AFAIK have been supportive too.

I think the funniest one I've seen is when Harry was running a foot race in Africa (can't remember the charity offhand but I want to say Tusk or Lesotho) and as the race started, he held a face mask in front of his face that had a picture of William on it.

It got to a point with me that I started to look for those little messages and digs. It was just something they do and I could imagine the brother on the receiving end of the dig grinning his head off. I never saw it as being mean or degrading or anything in a negative connotation but showed the closeness the brothers share.

As the brothers got older and their lifestyles changed and their obligations took them in different directions, it made me smile to know they were thinking of each other.

As far as Charles goes, I loved the one liner he said when Will and Kate got engaged. "They were practicing long enough".
Excellent post.

Gah! I want them teaching where I work. I can see William getting a kick out of G's love for Elmo, and 'Wiggles', and amusing the kids during my sessions with all the toys that are kept in the room. No, the man is not a bully. Kids are intelligent beings, and can tell if someone is sincere or not, and if William was insincere in any way, shape, or form, the kids won't want anything to do with him. Plain, and simple.

Tear- jerkers aren't they? Great minds think alike again- which I'm glad about. That would be awesome. Do let me know when he shows up. You are spot-on in the other points you make as well.

I promise, you'll be the first to know if anything like what I've described takes place .

Thank you! Hopefully, I'll be told waaaaaay in advance. I know the general public can't be told ahead of time- but hopefully I fall in the VIG - Very Important Guest category- ( besides HRH of course) and you can persuade his office to issue me a special invitation so I can come!

I take it that this support system is the idea that everyone should have 5 people to go to in case of bullying. I have to hand it to William. He's got a very strong support system and it brought a smile to my face to read that Lupo is included. Man's best friend and best example of unconditional love and never ever tells your secrets to anyone.

Perhaps some will think that naming Lupo is nothing but a cute idea but I see it as a very good thing. Many times a child just can't feel he can talk to anyone and with talking it out to a beloved pet, it does get out and that's a whole lot better than holding things in and letting them fester.

Prince William has revealed he would always turn to his family in times of difficulty. The father-of-two shared a list of the five people he would look to first for support during an official engagement at Hammersmith Academy on Monday.

As one might expect, William's wife the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, made the list, along with his brother Prince Harry, with whom he has a close relationship. The 33-year-old also listed his father Prince Charles and grandparents the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh as his support network, with one surprising name rounding off William's list – his pet dog, Lupo.

That is so awesome! I love the hand with the 5 fingers for 5 people you can tell. Oh if we had done this at my school. At my school we were told who not to tell. Oh well, at least it's over now, and I am healing, and I have 5 people I can tell.
I love who William chose- including the dog.
If I had a hand William would be one of my 5- seriously.

Second- I love that article, and the photos of William being... William. This man will be a great King. Hopefully, he and I can have a Conversation like that someday.

The light, fluffy picture story today was Prince William naming his support network but I think history will record he spoke up for LGBTs.

Video:
The Duke of Cambridge has visited a school in west London to support of an anti-bullying campaign run by an organisation set up in memory of his mother. The Diana Award's Anti-Bullying Ambassadors programme provides the opportunity to learn how to recognise signs of bullying and encourage victims to seek help and speak out about their concerns. Prince William joined more than 50 young people at Hammersmith Academy as they took part in a training session-

The program was part of a back-to-school campaign run by The Diana Award, a charity named after the prince's late mother.

William, the Duke of Cambridge, joined several dozen students at a London school to highlight the problem of bullying, particularly intimidation over social media and bullying faced by gay and transgender students.

I was trying to decide if I thought Richard Palmer was calling today light and fluffy but has serious undertones and will be remembered for much more... or if was saying the press office would make more of this event than actually happened.

and then I saw the Express headline..... and his takeaway was all about the posh - pity. William I thought made a very good effort to relate to the kids that your "high 5" should be those close to you - that you can trust...even putting in his dog. He didnt say the Queen, the said 'grandmother'.

Exactly Michelle. And he can't help that his family is posh. I mean.. he should have the same right to put his family on there as everyone else. Just that his family happens to be royal!

He put down people who the kids would of put down: best friend (Kate), sibling (Harry), parent and grandparent. He used father and grandmother not HRH Prince of Wales or HM The Queen. Even Lupo is a good choice that the kids can relate to.

One of the most irritating aspects of UK Press is that the writer of the piece and the headline writer are different people. this is a perfect example of the story and the headline not matching.

I though Richard wrote a good piece and I'd like to kick the headline writer and the editor who approved the headline.

Moral of reading Uk press is read the story and don't rely on the headline.
