Prince William's courage comes to the forefront time and time again through his role as an RAF search-and-rescue pilot.

And it has recently come to light that the 28-year-old has lobbied Prime Minister David Cameron over controversial plans to privatise the service.

Just like Captain Mark Phillips did when he married Princess Anne. That scarlet jacket makes that I think he was the least attractive groom out of all of them.
I just don't find scarlet fitting for a groom on his wedding day, it doesn't fit with my mindset. Purely my opinion of course.

I'd much rather have William wear his RAF attire.

I'm surprised this is his first Colonel appt, as I thought that had happened already. Too, I could be confusing his being created Commodore of Scotland w/this as well.

Regardless, I can't wait for the first pictures of the new Colonel in his newest uniform. :)

edited to add...Already fixed the new rank, so please don't nail me for that one. I really hope he'll be in his Blues and Greys Uniform for the Wedding, but know it's pretty much a for sure thing he'll be in his RAF one.

The Prince of Wales - Prince William to visit Australia and New Zealand - Thursday 17th to Monday 21st March 2011

Prince William is to pay a visit to New Zealand and to Australia on behalf of The Queen following the natural disasters in both countries. Prince William will visit following invitations extended by the Prime Minister of New Zealand and the Prime Minister of Australia.

:previous: Good to see. I think it will be very interesting to see the response from the people in the affected areas.

ghost_night554 03-08-2011 07:55 PM

Very good on William's part. He was pretty well received last time so I think/hope he will again this time and the people will appreciate him coming down and showing his support. I think he prob would have come down sooner but I imagine it may take some time to organize these things with his work and upcoming wedding to work around.

Madame Royale 03-08-2011 08:04 PM

Wonderful news. I imagine William will be the new pawn used for visits, especially to Australia. And I for one am glad of it.

Princejohnny25 03-08-2011 10:15 PM

I was chuffed to bits when I heard William wld be coming down to Christchurch and am even more pleased to see him going to Oz as well. I wld have liked to see Kate along but I feel that wld have been a distraction from these sombre events.
