The article in the Mail says

"While some his colleagues were gasping for breath, William, 24, looked as if he had barely broken into a sweat".

Are we looking at different pictures, he looks as tired as his colleagues, with his flushed cheeks, neck and open mouth!

"But William left at the head of the group and was one of the first ones back".

Oh, he didn't lead all the way then!

Unless there are training exercises or they have drawn guard duty. Most evenings and weekends are his. Obviously they all take it in turn to be on duty evenings, nights and weekends, this is normally worked out by the CO and his staff.

Soldiers don't work 9-5, the bases are patrolled and guarded at all times, normally by privates, corporals etc but, there are always officers on duty.

When I was in boot camp they only made people who slipped up on something run in their boots! 7 miles in those boots is tough! If he didn't break a sweat he must be in incredible shape.

It's standard practise here in the UK and 7 miles is not that far, they wern't even carrying full packs.

They wear their army issue boots whenever they are on duty!

It doesn't sound like the morning run was a timed event. He just had to do a 7-mile run. Probably the presence of photographers motivated William to run a little faster.

He didn't have to go into the Army. There are other branches of the Royal Armed Forces he could chosen to go into. Maybe he wanted to go into the Army. I'm sure he's not enjoying army life right now, but he might be getting something positive out of it.

The Navy has been the choice for most of the males in the royal family. His father and grandfather were both naval officers.

Why is it that most army recruits aren't very attractive? I was led to believe they all had a certain something like Harry. William should refuse to serve with them, then again, running with ugly people makes you look more attractive I suppose.

1. They are not army recruits.
2. Does anyone look attractive during or after a 7 mile run?
3. How many people can even do a 7 mile run?
4. What appeals to you, might not appeal to someone else, (Harry is not considered attractive by many).
5. Unless you are some kind of Adonis....

Not army recruits? Well, they're in the army and thats what I meant. And yes - after the marathon thing, Harry looked mighty attractive so some people can look attractive during or after a 7 mile run. I'm not an adonis but I expect soldiers to be. It's only fair.

One thing we should be thankful for, is the fact that British soldiers seem to be able to have at least an inch or so of hair and are not required to have the buzz cuts (as worn by the gentleman on the left in that pic) that seem to be compulsory for American soldiers.

I find the buzz cuts rather appealling. It does seem that alot of our soldiers are a little tubby. Of course, it's probably all muscle but they're rather wierd. Then again, not all soldiers can look like Leo Di Caprio I suppose.
