Gosh, how I love that black dress coat. And the cheesy smile.

Interesting factoid from the video. This is the first time in 5 years that the whole Irish Guards have been together for St Patrick's Day. Nice that their colonel was there for it.

William paid tribute to Sir David on BBC One's Attenborough At 90, a special programme to mark the broadcaster's milestone birthday on May 8.

He said: "There is something very calming and sort of warm about his programmes. There is something very reassuring about seeing David Attenborough on BBC One doing his documentaries. It is part of the national psyche now.

"He's a national treasure and it is very fitting that he is having his 90th birthday only a few weeks after the Queen. They are two incredible national treasures who have done so much over the years."

William said the naturalist was "the single most important impact in my conservation thinking".

Funny how the Duke of Cambridge got a warmer welcome to Oxford U then when he took a course at Cambridge U where the students just whined.

really? i remember it being a great hit when he visited with kate some years ago. but maybe memory fails...

i like seeing william visiting historic universities like cambridge and oxford. they are such an institution and a referent of the UK in the world that i think they should be around more promoting them and their work :)

besides, i got the impression that, with the hype about st andrews and WK having studied there, other universities don't get as much exposure to the advantages of having them on campus.

Not the town itself. Some of the students whined about his academic credentials when he took the land management course at the University early in 2014.

Probably because there is a difference between a visit, like Oxford, and attending university, like Cambridge.

I am not surprised that students who studied and worked their butts off to get into a school as prestigious as Cambridge wouldn't be happy William got in because of who he was.

This was all explained at the time. William wasn't applying as an undergraduate. So his A levels weren't the most relevant factor. He took a bespoke land management course run by the Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership. Prince Charles is it's patron.

It seemed petty to me. It was one course related to his future role. He wasn't going to get a 4 year degree from the school. Sometimes I think people look for things to complain about.

Exactly Erin9.

The Cambridge course was a simple 'bestoke' course which many unis run requiring no entry qualifications but are ones that are designed to sort a niche market

The undergraduates were upset because William didn't have the grades to get into Cambridge as an undergraduate. By the time that this course was being studied anyway William already had a degree so his qualifications wouldn't have been his school results had he wanted to do a full course at Cambridge.

It was lovely to see him at Oxford.
The Cambridges have a general interest trend toward youth and so University appearances fit right in.
It's kinda sad how little we comment on his appearances given how much press is given to him being work shy,
And who else thought the Gruffalo encounter quite nice and maybe a bit revealing.
Oh and this image is, ? I'm not sure but the press corps got a good giggle I am sure. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2016/...2973136270.jpg
