I just posted about the RAF ceremony at Royal Romance, with a link to video that shows William and Kate chatting and Kate rubbing his back. They look very in sync. Great to see both Kate and Charles/Camilla supporting William's military career!

What a wonderful video.
William looks so strict and professional when walking up to his father.

From The Telegraph:

Quote:
He will become an operational pilot in 2011 and undertake a three-year search and rescue tour of duty.

It seems like Kate remembered about the press and quickly removed her hand,

Has anybody noticed, in reading about the Haitian earthquake, the British SAR personnel are being sent to assist in the aid efforts?

I wonder if something dreadful like this happens during William's service, whether he would actually get to do something like that or whether he will only serve in Britain is the 'safer' environment there. Of course no real SAR mission (as opposed to training missions) is safe but a place like Haiti at the moment is not the safest place so I wonder if he would be able to serve somewhere like that? I hope that he does, although I really do hope that nothing like that happens while he is serving (but we all know that natural disasters happen every year).

Haiti earthquake: family of missing British UN worker Ann Barnes 'fear the worst' - Telegraph The final paragraph of this article is the relevant one - The first British search and rescue workers have arrived in the country to help scour the rubble for survivors, but there is frustration on the streets at the lack of aid which is getting through to those who need it.

I have read this in other reports as well.

Could this mean a wedding postponed until 2014 or 2015?

This makes sense to me so that he is by Kate's (or whomever's) side when they are launched on their royal duties but while he is on military service he can only do royal duties on weekends or on his leave time and she would be expected to be doing full time duties from day 1.

Thats what I thought.
As for the Haiti article, I hope William would participate in helping were a disaster to occur like this again.

Now I am confused. I thought this was a official tour of New Zealand and an unofficial one to Australia but his departure was deemed 'private' and hence no photographers were allowed.

Express.co.uk - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express | UK News :: Wills 'private' Royal tour

This is stupid - if it is an official tour then photos leaving, arriving in New Zealand, doing the official stuff in New Zealand, leaving New Zealand and arriving back in Britain to me are expected.

I would be fine if there were no photos of his unofficial tour of Australia as that is not representing the Queen and therefore is a private tour.

If photos of him leaving are deemed private then I assume that for consistencies sake, there will be no photos of him throughout the tour.

I totally suppor the royal family's desire and demand for there to be no photos of them when doing things on their private property but when officially representing the Queen I think that photos should be expected.

Not necessarily. Kate's not going to be in as senior a position as Diana or even Sarah were during the 80s. But once Prince Charles takes the throne, then she'd be expected to do much more as the wife of the heir to the throne. I expect that she'd make appearances with William, but doing solo appearances right away? No.

She would certainly be more senior than Sarah was when she married. Sarah married the 4th in line to the throne (both William and Harry had been born).

Kate (or whomever) will be marrying the second in line and thus would be expected to be doing as much if not more than Sarah.

The Kingmakers | Sir David Manning, Lord Janvrin and Christopher Geidt to train Prince William | News Of The World

The Queen has called in a team of top Royal mandarins dubbed the Three Wise Men to knock Wills into shape as a king in waiting.

She has asked career diplomat Sir David Manning, her former private secretary Lord Janvrin and her new top aide Christopher Geidt to sharpen up her grandson's public performance.
