Moral of reading Uk press is read the story and don't rely on the headline.
Right, I too liked Richard's article.

Prince William revealed the five people – and one precious pup! – he would turn to in times of trouble.

The prince, 33, visited a bullying prevention workshop on Monday at Hammersmith Academy in London to highlight the work of the non-profit Diana Award, set up in his late mother's name.

Taking part in a "high-five" exercise in which he was asked to name his five key supports, he wrote, "Catherine, Harry, Father, Grandmother and Grandfather" – and cocker spaniel Lupo for good measure.

The school's training day focused on practical ways kids can tackle cyberbullying and LGBT bullying, an issue that William has taken on increasingly.

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.
This engagement was an absolute success. The hand withe the names of people you can come to if you're being bullied is a gem. Those who are bullied often feel alone (I speak from experience), and are too scared to confide in anyone. The hand is a reminder that there are people who will listen, and help those who are being victimized feel empowered. William's choices of a support network are great, especially his grandmother, and his dog. People underestimate the comfort animals can bring to a person in pain. Like you, I'd list William on my hand too. The man listens with his heart. I would feel that he is genuinely interested, and would use whatever I choose to share to help someone else. That makes me feel like my own pain was worth it, especially if my experience can make someone else's pain more bearable. I hope someday you and I will be able to have that kind of Conversation with William. I can't think of a better person, well maybe along with another individual.

Prince William was hit by the curse of mechanical failure today, just as Harry was last week. He was due to fly in a Dakota but it went US.

Richard Palmer ‏@RoyalReporter 1h1 hour ago
With the Dakota unserviceable, William flew a Chipmunk instead at RAF Coningsby.

Prince William is also Honorary Air Commandant of Royal Air Force Coningsby. 29 Reserve Squadron is celebrating their 100th anniversary today and William was there to take the royal salute.

Quote:
The airman who took HRH Prince William up into the air in a Chipmunk aircraft has described him as a natural pilot.

The Duke of Cambridge enjoyed panoramic views over Lincolnshire as he flew at 3,000ft in the two-seater vintage RAF plane from RAF Coningsby.

He even took over the controls from Squadron Leader Duncan Mason, Officer Commanding the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

And the Chipmunk was joined in mid-air by a BBMF Spitfire flown by Flight Lieutenant Antony Parkinson.

Climbing out of the cockpit after touch down, the Duke, who is Patron of BBMF, and an air ambulance pilot following his stint with the RAF Search and Rescue Force, said: "It was very good."

Mr Mason said it was an "absolute privilege".

"The great thing is that he is a pilot already and he just naturally eased into it," he said.

"What was apparent is that he is a helicopter pilot, which is very much stick and rudder and you could tell he was very much at ease with flying the aircraft.

Prince William enjoyed a “dirty story” with a Battle of Britain veteran during a visit to Lincolnshire for the campaign’s 75 anniversary.

Former Spitfire flier Ken Wilkinson, one of the pilots famously dubbed the "few" by Winston Churchill, chatted to the Duke of Cambridge before admitting: “I’m under instruction not to tell dirty stories”. Undeterred, William asked him to tell the story he had planned.

Later the former wartime pilot recounted his story. In it, a man called Joe becomes the captain of his local golf club and insists on only being referred to by his new title.

At the end of a celebratory dinner to mark his new position, the man goes home undresses and gets into bed with his wife, announcing himself as “the captain”.

She replies: “You have to be quick – Joe will be home soon.”

Right?! I bet William enjoys a dirty story as much as the next guy! :P That "incident" reminds me of the time when someone cursed in the presence of the Queen and got really embarressed but the Queen said something along the lines of "I have a family full of sailors, I've heard worse" :P
