Cepe-I didn't have the chance to mention this in the old thread, but completely agree that some people do not understand the seriousness of the hacked voicemails. Yes his messages to Kate and Harry were cute and amusing, but a person's privacy was violated. Public figure or private person everyone should be assured of their own personal privacy.

Thank you. It was illegal and for me, that's the important point. Content isn't relevant.

Very nice gesture on William's part:

Ladies, I share your sentiments. This man definitely knows how to make someone's day. What I love most, is the fact that he's sincere about it. I doubt that anyone from his PR team told him to do something like this. He just saw an opportunity, and took it. William (along with his wife) has a heart of gold.

I am with you as far as being sincere, and natural. That intuitive way of knowing who needs you, and drawing them in. Letting people be quietly aware you are there for them- a gift.

Per the Express article posted above, he will commute though he has free accommodations.

I think that for the ordinary lecture days that's what he will do, but there are also field trips, tours etc which may mean that he needs to be based in Cambridge. He's got flexibility to meet the various needs of the course. Also, spending a few nights in Cambridge with some of the others on the course would be a good for team building.

Video:
The Duke of Cambridge has arrived at Cambridge University this morning, to start a 10-week course in Agricultural Management. However, his enrolment has led some to question whether other students with similar A-Level grades would have qualified to study at the world-famous institution.

3rd year student Tim Squirrell has described the controversy as ‘a storm in a tea cup’ while Will Heilperin, who edits ‘Cambridge Tab’ says fellow students have a ‘vague feeling of excitement’ about his arrival-

For security reasons I cant imagine they will release where he is staying - most likely a family friend with secure entrance. I wouldn't expect it more than a few nights a week. I would assume a lot would depend on his ability to not inconvenience his host. Hopefully this hoopla will die down and he can do what he needs to.

I'm glad you mentioned this because that was my concern with the your man whom wanted people to "track" where William was and post it on twitter. So, so stupid.
