Actually Charles would have paid for her, if she didn't pay for herself, as Charles still supports both his sons.

They will each have access to their trust funds from Diana's estate when they turn 25 but until then it is up to their father to support them.

They will not get anything from the Civil List until they begin full time royal duties or until they marry and with the changes that have taken place in the last decade to who gets money from the Civil List they may not get anything from that even then. The only people who actually receive money from the Civil List now are the Queen and Prince Philip. Any other money paid to members of the royal family is repaid by the Queen.

The last time that a Prince of Wales had grown up children was Edward VII and his son only accessed the civil list after marriage. Of course the parliament was much more liberal at giving money to the Royal Family then.

I personally think that Charles shouldn't pay for all of his son's wants and needs. They will never become what we would consider normal if they don't pay for some of their own things.

The point is that at this time in their lives where are they going to get any money. The government is not going to give them any. They don't yet have jobs in the military (that will change when Harry goes to Sandhurst and he will receive a cadet's pay and more as he graduates and is commissioned). William has no job either.

They can't access their trust funds from Diana (not sure it they got one from the Queen Mum and when, if one exists, that that becomes available) until they are 25.

In other words Charles has to support them until then.

I hope though that he is giving them an allowance and saying live on that for the year and not just handing over money whenever they say they want or need it.

I think Diana was such a huggy type person that people didn't see the relationship he has with his kids. I think at first too that he didn't know quite how to act but once he saw that William and Harry needed both parents he jumped in a little more. Even on one of his aides(If I can find the interview I will forward it) said Charles wasn't really in their lives for the first five years or so but got his act together soon afterward.
If you want something done right, do it yourself.

this is an interesting article about the possible future home of william from the website of the daily telegraph:

Telegraph | News | Is this manor house fit for a future king?

Thanks for the article, Susan. I wonder if it'll turn out to be true.

Does anybody know if that location is actually in Wales or just near the border? I'm not sure what the border does down there any more.

I suppose another alternative is that this farm is being made ready for Charles and Camilla to use so that William can eventually have Higgrove. I suppose we'll have to wait and see what happens.

I heard Charles had given Highgrove to William a while ago.

21 JUNE 2005

Prince William and his father Charles have both been indulging in a bit of high-octane fun. Wills, who has just turned 23, arrived at Cirencester Park Polo Club on a powerful motorcycle, while the heir to the throne made his entrance, along with new wife Camilla, in a classic Aston Martin convertible.

The birthday boy's passion for motorcycles has raised a few eyebrows in royal circles, but he is obviously taking care to avoid any unnecessary risks. The royal biker was cruising along at a leisurely pace, despite the fact his Daytona 600 can accelerate as fast a Ferrari, and he was also wearing a protective jacket, gloves and boots.

William will be donning rather more conservative attire on Thursday when he graduates from St Andrews University, though. The second in line will be sporting a black graduation gown with a traditional black and cherry hood as he receives his degree from the institution's chancellor Sir Kenneth Dover.

And his summer looks set to get off to a storming start because he jets out to New Zealand next week to join the British Lions rugby team. The trip will also see him carrying out his first solo engagements, as he represents the Queen at memorial services in Wellington and Auckland.

"As a huge rugby fan, I cannot think of a better place to watch what will hopefully be a hard-fought and exciting Test series," said the Prince. "But I am also very much looking forward to meeting people outside of rugby and enjoying some of the breathtaking scenery for which New Zealand is so justly renowned."

2. Prince Charles opted for a rather more traditional, though no-less eye-catching, form of transport

If royal security is so tight, how come they let William ride something so dangerous?

Royal Security is so that no one else can cause them physical harm. Riding a motorcycle is purely by choice, and if he were to injure himself it would be his own doing.

Besides, they family can't cut everything out of William's life, it just wouldn't be fair. At 23 if he wants to ride a motorcycle there really isn't much they can do about or no security.
Have you ever wished on a star? It's a magic everyone should experience.

Be a good person.

Very true, but at the same time, I don't think they have a whole lot of control on Britters said, there isn't much they can do about it, with or without security.

charles and camilla never you will give to diana him by anything.

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".
