Good for William for completing such a tough course!!!
A big congrats to HRH for accomplishing this! I'm sure he's glad to get past that part and move onto the second phase. I'm still not clear on exactly when he graduates the full course though. I keep hearing different time frames.

Great news to hear! He will be free in near time to attend to other matters. I'm glad he passed the trials for his training. It's an honor to serve the country as humble as is his calling. I respect all servants of the armed forces who are often selfless and courageous. I wonder what it's like to walk in his shoes. Honor bound I imagine. Here's to wishing him a life full of love. Congratulations.

I agree, fox huntin isn't good but there are certain things you shouldn't say about people let alone a royal, calling him a a**hole is too far across the line.

She has the right to call him what she likes royal or not.
She did say she thought her would be as stuffy a**hole but after his response decided he was just a redneck. She could have called him worse.

Marraige?
His training will take 18-20 months then will serve on a tour that will last 30-36 months.

You would be amazed how many people do care about Will and Harry in the US, but then again alot of Americans don't even care about the ongoings of their government unless it involves money.

It just seems so much more quieter here in the States. But then again, I'm sure whenever William gets around to announcing his engagement to Kate, the American media would go into a frenzy, much like the Diana days.

Nothing fancy or pomp for Wills' Australia and NZ tour in January

Prince William to begin first major Australian visit | Trak.in News


Palace: William Not Bypassing Dad as King

Quote:
The "it" is a report in the Britain newspaper Mail on Sunday suggesting that twenty-seven year old Prince William is being readied to overtake his father, Prince Charles, as the future torchbearer of Britain's royal family, as king.

The report is being dismissed as "nonsense" by a spokesperson for the royal family.

But, says Mail on Sunday columnist Katie Nicholl, "It's been in my experience in eight years of reporting (on the royals) that the stories often denied are the ones that really have a gravitas of truth about them."

Sounds like Katie is just trying to make up for all the wrong stories she's reported recently.

Which stories is she referring too here?
Williams first overseas tour (I think) low key? don't think so.

One thing that always bugs me with this story is "Do people really think that William, who obviously loves and admires his father tremendously, is going to simply allow his father to be put aside for no good reason?"

'We know your pain', Princes tell families of Britain's war dead | Mail Online

I assume this information is from the Sun Military Awards.

Thanks lumutqueen. What a nice story of the Princes extending good wishes to families of our lost servicemen and women. A very thoughtful gesture.
