He reminds me so much of his mother yet I can see quite a bit of his father in him as well.

Prince William's successful tour of Australia cuts Republican support for ditching monarchy

Prince William's well-received trip to Australia appears to have given the monarchist cause a boost.

All points to good news there. In terms of maintaining the Constitutional security of The Commonwealth of Australia. He, HRH William of Wales, is a fine mix of both of his parents there.

He has improved so much. He sounds really good! It's nice that he mentions Haiti too.
I noticed there are many Aussies on this forum. Did anyone have a chance to go see Prince William? Warren? I wasn't able to as I don't live near the areas he went to. I really wish I could've seen him though.

I notice that too. I think William does write his speeches himself, although I'm sure someone polishes them, because there were certain ways he had of phrasing things that somehow reminded me of Princess Diana. He really does seem to have a bit of her ease with people, which I think is a good thing for the monarchy.

Also, kudos to William for learning to enunciate! I could actually understand almost everything he said, which I couldn't say in the past.

Great speeches! Thanks to everybody who provided all the pics, articles and videos.
My favorites are the ones with the kids. He seems so at ease with them.

I live in NSW up near the Queensland border. I thought I would be in Sydney last week and if I had been I might have made an effort to try and see him, but my plans changed. He seems to have done a good job on the tour though. He seems like a charming, likeable chap, and has been working on his public speaking and moving on with his POW-in-waiting training.

It is a positive article by an Australian actor published in the British press. It is a nice one, though.

(The reason I am not using contractions is I cannot use apostophes when typing replies here. Every time I press the apostrophe key I call up "Quick find - links only". I can, however, use inverted commas, which is the same key but with shift. Anyone have any idea why this is happening?)

"He was charming, empathetic, approachable and informal. He smiled and told jokes, he listened seriously and engaged with what people told him, he was clearly moved by the victims of the bushfires and he asked serious questions, beyond the "Do you come here often?" that so many of the royals use as a substitute for conversation."

I stand corrected.

A wonderful photo, you could make the line about "Conducting the affairs of state with a steady hand". Alas I will refrain from doing so, until those times become an actuality.

That first article is funny, especially the title of it.
Here's a few pics that I think correspond with it.

Though I´m very happy for Prince William and the monarchy that his trip to these 2 countries was so well received, it still leaves me puzzeled that a young prince, not even next in line, is more popular than the actual monarch! It´s sad to see that you only seem to get any credit when you´re young and when being old you´re almost "forgotten"... Remember the thunderous, almost hysterical welcome the young Queen got after she visited Australia after the coronation! She´s still the same person, but today only the staunchest of australian royalists would show up for her.
And I´m very sorry for the Prince of Wales. He seems to remain completely underestimated! I mean, his sons are not only a product of influence of their mother, but also of him! But to most people, the 2 princes are only "Diana´s sons"....

Quite correct, but soon enough William will be pronounced dull and boring and there will be clamour for his handsome/pretty son or daughter as "the future of the monarchy".
Superficiality rules, the new is the now, substance counts for little. So it goes.

I think that's why it's important that Buckingham Palace makes use of William while he's still fairly young and popular.
