I feel the same way. I'm around his age, so in a way, it's kind of like growing up and observing him having experiences that are similar to mine (such as graduating secondary school, starting university, graduating from university). I remember when I watched him walk behind his mother's coffin, I thought that he was a very strong person. In the midst of grief, he was able to pull through and do what's expected. I also remember thinking that if I were in his shoes, I would not have been able to do that.

I totally agree with you. I still remember that day, it's increible that he had 30 years, I see him like that boy boy of 15 years old boy.
of course he is a man now

Well I would think even though you grow up with protocol and discipline being his age when all that happened and everything he went through the emotions going through him must have been intense and for all we know he might have lashed out behind closed doors maybe cryed and let out the anger and pain that was within him. But if you are saying he held up in public then yes, he did the best he could do. Frankly I think he was numb and in shock. Thats why I think there wasnt much emotion when seen in public.

That's exactly what I meant and I should have explained myself better. Thank you. I have no doubt that he was in shock and probably didn't want to deal with the emotions that came with losing his mother and pushed it to the back of his head.

nice video on William @30
I hope they get to enjoy as much normality as they can it will be better in the long run for both their relationship and Williams eventual role as monarch.

Prince William plans 'low-key and private' birthday celebration as he prepares for future role as King
Quote:
More than 300 friends and family were invited to an African-themed birthday bash at Windsor Castle to mark Prince William's 21st. But palace officials have announced that the Duke of Cambridge will be keeping celebrations 'low-key' and 'private' as he turns 30 tomorrow. It has been rumoured that his wife Kate, who marked the milestone in January, was planning a party to remember and had enlisted the help of friend and London club owner Guy Pelly.

Oh my goodness, in the first picture of Charles and Diana on the hospital steps, Charles looks just like Harry!

If I'm correct, there is a new portrait in this weeks Hello! to mark William's birthday. Very similar to the engagement picture and Catherine is in a lovely black suit.
