He has done some duties. Was the trip to New Zealand a duty?
I know that one part that was sports related but he also lied a wreath the Auckland War Memorial Museum and meant with veterans as a representative of Queen Elizabeth II which marked the end of WWII.

I agree, and I would fully applaud any amount of time he spends working in the FO, but at the same time, I think his military training is just as valuable. I see all courses proposed in the Times article as valuable.
1) Military
2) Foreign Office -- they say, starting around 2009
3) Prince's Trust/full-time engagements, perhaps in 2012?
Even though he will leave the military early on in order to do other things.
I think it is not unusual to spend a short time in military service. Prince Charles only stayed for six years, and look at Prince Edward, who didn't even finish training! I think king-training should encompass a wide range of experiences. As the scope of the job of the Monarch is far-reaching, the training should be diverse. I think a little military experience, a little Foreign Office experience learning about diplomatic service, and then perhaps, as the Times' Christopher Morgan suggests, taking over the Prince's Trust will all give him valuable knowledge.
If these things are true, especially what he allegedly says about wanting structured training, it says a lot about PW's maturity. Structure is the key to success in all things.

I do to think it's an awesome idea as it does put him in a position of continuing to applying himself to duty and country. It also gives him more purpose of being as he waits out for Kingship duty.

One step too much

Prince William of Wales 's future at first is to become Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, etc. and eventually to be created as The Prince of Wales.

Only then we can label him as king-in-waiting. For the moment he still is heir-in-waiting.

My guess:

HRH Prince William will finish his military training.

HRH Prince William will make a special program in which he will be introduced to all the armed forces (army, navy, air force, constabulary).

HRH Prince William will start with public events and become a regular item in the Court Circular.

HRH Prince William becomes HRH The Prince William, Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay and eventually also The Prince of Wales. My guess is that the Prince will not have to wait too long for his creation as The Prince of Wales.

HRH The Prince of Wales will take up his responsibilities for the management of the Duchy of Cornwall and also build his own Household, most likely by changes in the Household left by his predecessor.

HRH The Prince of Wales will, as Heir Apparent, take considerably more public duties and also give acte de presence on State Visits and royal events at home and abroad.

In between all this HRH The Prince of Wales will probably marry.

And finally HRH The Prince of Wales will succeed his father as King.

My guess;

HRH Prince William will finish his military training.

HRH Prince William will take on more sports charities and will take on patronages his mother held in the vain attempt to leech off of her popularity.

HRH Prince William will start with public events and become a regular item in the Court Circular.

HRH Prince William will get married, probably to Kate Middleton.

HRH Prince William will succeed Charles as Prince of Wales etc and do all the things his father has done.

HRH Prince William will face mass modernisation and a referendum after he becomes King. We will become a republic and he will eek out a living as HM King William V with HM Queen Katherine. And good riddance.

You mean ex-King William V and ex-Queen Katherine, probably living abroad in France or Germany?

You have to be joking. When Republic comes, we're having Balmoral.
