While this seemed to offer NO new info it was kind of nicely put together. I enjoyed it, it is always nice to see the old and the new film and photos.

Considering Prince Charles originally chose his wedding date with Camilla on 04/08/2005, which is also a date of solar eclipse, (although at the end he could not marry on that day because of Pope John Paul II's funeral) it drives me to think that the British Royal Family might have a special crush on solar eclipse.
William was born naturally, not by C-Section, so the date of his birth wasn't really chosen. It's still really cool, though, that he was born on a solar eclipse. I wonder if it is a coincidence, or something more...

Another point of view is --- the timeline of his retreating hairline. (I am sorry, I am bad.)

Actually, I hope that he can try his best to reduce the time of wearing a hat or a helmet. It is really not good for his hair. Looking at him wearing that almost air-proof helicopter helmet is really worrisome.

There were some "decent" sources includes to balance out Katie Nichol, including former press secretary Dickie Arbiter and the queen's cousin Lady Elizabeth Anson. I'd say it was a broad look at his life with a focus on how it might shape his future.

One of the things I took away from that fangirl-pandemonium phase of his life was how uncomfortable it must have been for him. He saw his mother hounded to death by paparazzi to fulfill the public's appetite for Diana. He certainly doesn't want it for himself. I think he's happy to no longer be a pin-up boy.

My favorite party was seeing two-year-old William playing in his army uniform.

Worrisome it may be, but he needs to stay safe, and wearing a helmet while flying his helicopter or playing polo may very well safe his life, which is worth more than his hair (and I'm sure if he wanted to, he could find a product on the market that would make his hair grow, since heaven knows that there are some avilable).

I doubt the helmet does much harm; baldness is hereditary, so it is inevitable for the Windsors. (Harry will be in the same boat soon enough, I noticed at the wedding that his hair is noticeably thinning.)

I noticed Harry's hair too. There was a camera shot of the back of his head at the Thanksgiving service and he's getting quite the bald patch now. I actually thought it was William at first.

the induced was a plan but the birth was natural, here is the birth's story related

No, Diana said that the date of William's birth was chosen to accomodate Charles' polo schedule. A scheduled induction does not necessarily mean a c-section. Pitocin will bring labor on. I had a scheduled induction myself.

I think Diana's labor was induced but there was no c-section.

It has been known for decades that she was induced.

Had she had a c-section she wouldn't have been out of hospital within less than 24 hours.

I don't know why what Diana says about this is given credence since we know she said these things - so many things - at a time that she was hay-bent on denigrating Charles in any way that she could. Has it been corroborated as true? Has Charles said he required it? Has a doctor agreed that that was why they induced? Wondering....

What Diana said does have to be taken with a grain of salt.
Anyway I haven't seen Harry's head in awhile, so far he seems to still have all or most of his hair.

may be the induction to into in labaour was planed but the birth was before to the day to the induction was planed. waht you think?
I read too that diana have an epidural, that said in morton's book. because she have high temperature and was a posibility to have a c-section. but william born naturally but the epidural never was confimed, and the miscarriage in 1983 never was confirmed.

Wow, those are great pictures Daria, thank you. Its really nice to see how William has grown through the years. Its hard to believe that he is 30. It seems like only yeaterday that he was a young boy and his mom was in the news. I remember seeing him on the tele either skiing or doing something with his mom. Amazing how fast the years go by.
