Is this boy only going to do sports related work or is he actually going to do something worthwhile?

:lol: He is rather heavy on the Patronage of Sporting organisations, but since this one is Welsh it might be a good thing after all. At least he is now the Patron of something connected to Wales!

I guess boys will be boys--enthusiac about sports and more sports. It also sounds like he wants dibs on the best seats in the house and stadium and what better way to get them? :smile:

As of Feb. '07 he will have four patronages. Two of them are charties Centrepoint and Tusk while two are sports related FA and WRU. I think he has only done anything with FA. Although I thought he might done something for Tusk.

I think he did something with all his patronages, except for the Welsh. :smile:

I think your right for Centrepoint it was no more than a photo op. The only reason has done much with FA is the World Cup was this year. WRU he hasn't done any thing with since he really hasn't taken it on yet.
What does everyone think of post #10 and this one?

TonyaR 10-27-2006 09:35 AM

It could be that Prince William will do more public activities for the charities that he is the Patron of when he takes up full time public duties at the end of his time in the military.

According to the CH announced schedule he will spend the next 3 years in different branches of the military (which counting 2006 will equal 4 years) and then take up his public duties while working as the official Ranger (?) for Windsor Park alongside his grandfather Prince Philip.

I'm sure he will take up his duties as Patron of all of his respective charities full-time at that point.

I believe that William is really interested in ecological and conservational projects and will focus a lot of effort outside of prying eyes. With the new opportunity of taking over his grandfather's role as Ranger in Windsor, he is beginning to show he took his studies in geography and what that part of that subject matter focused on in the importance of preservation and conservation. His other charities are for 'doing what's right' and for a little sporting fun.:smile:

He worked at Centrepoint for a few days before he became patron, I don't know for how long though but it should be easy to find out. I don't know if he has done anything for Tusk Trust yet.

Has there been any official word on the ranger thing, I never saw anything official on that.

It is good for William's image and good for the charity appeal because it will bring his famous name to their benefit. However, William is somewhat surprising choice as patron for a "Wellbeing for Women" appeal. I would have thought maybe Sophie, or at least Camilla or Anne. A woman for the women, after all. But obviously Clarence House is trying to integrate William into more engagements and improve his image.... I'm glad. They need to improve his image from the damage he has done with all this club and Kate and paparazzi-victim stuff.... I hope they will continue with this tactic.

Queen tells Charles: Get William a charity job | Mail Online

Ella Kay 08-30-2008 10:06 PM

Because he's only got eight charities on the roster so far, I suppose, along with his military commitments. :rolleyes: Katie Nicholl needs to hang it up.

Harry's polo shirt 08-31-2008 12:15 AM

it is time that Prince William got a steady "job" of some sorts. Many men and women in the military have jobs outside of military. Although he will not be able to work a "normal" job, he is at the age were he needs something steady, so he doesn't seem like all he does is vacation outside of military.
