Yes I remember they talked about this a while ago. It sounds as though they may still considering sending him there.

This may sound silly, but I'm still adjusting to William being a Duke and Catherine a Duchess. I guess after so many years of them being Prince William and Kate Middleton, I'm still not used to it.

When I read Duke of Cambridge, I think, who? And I confuse the Duchess of Cambridge with the Duchess of Cornwall.

Me too! :lol: I wish he would have just stayed Prince William and she was styled Princess Catherine. But no point going down that road again since we have discussed that issue to death.

I'm not used to it either. It takes a second for me to remember who that is. All my life he's been Prince William. By the time I get used to calling him a duke he'll have ascended the throne:)

Me too I'm always like "Wills and Kate" then I'm like oh no I mean "the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge" It just sound weird to me!

I agree :rofl: I had assumed we would all be referring to her as Princess Kate, yet everyone seems to be calling them William and Kate Middleton!

Things like these just take time getting used to and a bit of goodwill from some people - not saying those people are on these forums.

I agree they are not even married a week, Once they start peroforming public engagement's and the press becomes more used to their title, They will be known as Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. :smile:

Two rescues for newlywed William - National - The Star

I cannot understand very well why prince William has this "job"...he is a Prince so he should keep with his duties, but why he is in the RAF Valley Royal Air Force? Lets be realistic if there was a war do you really think Prince William will be in the rescue team and go in the battle field?I don't think so...

Tradition says that British royal princes serve in the military.

William initially wanted to serve in the army but he was told there was no way he could go to Afghanistan with a ground unit so her transferred to the RAF as there was a greater chance to either see active combat or at least to serve his country in a real way.

The SAR unit with whom he works doesn't only work in war zones but spends a lot of the time rescuing civilian personnel who are injured or otherwise caught in situations that they can't extricate themselves from without help.

He is doing a very real job and serving his country at the same time. He might actually get to go to the Falklands and serve there, which would be seen as provacative by the Argentinians.

Just because he can't see service in a war zone doesn't mean that the service he is doing isn't worthwhile.

At the moment his duties are his military ones. He isn't needed on full-time royal duties as there are 14 or so members of the BRF who do that sort of thing. Over the coming years he will step up his royal duties and in two or so years will be leaving the RAF and working for the Royal Family full time but in the meantime his service is in the military.

Charles served in the navy for 5 years and he was the direct heir. William is able to take longer doing what he really wants to do because he is only 2nd in line at the moment.
