Prince William has really stepped up and improved his interaction with public in a huge way. I believe he will do well for his country and commonwealth. His father and Queen should be proud and extremely happy.

I'm impressed with Prince William on this visit (and the previous visit to Jerusalem). He has become a good speaker and his interactions with the public (including Alen Alsati , the little girl in the hospital yesterday) are natural, genuine and warm. It's good to see glimpses of the king he will eventually become.

It's great that William visited the Christchurch victims during his visit. His speech was very powerful particularly as it's relevant to all acts of terrorism and extremism. I agree that he has improved greatly in his public speaking skills (as has Catherine) over the past few years.

The Duke of Cambridge this morning visited Christchurch Hospital, 2 Riccarton Avenue, Christchurch, New Zealand.

His Royal Highness afterwards visited Masjid Al Noor, 101 Deans Avenue, Riccarton, Christchurch.

It really is a short long distance visit. Most likely his travel time was longer than his actual time in New Zealand.

Who are the attendants and why are they specifically mentioned?

The three gentlemen listed below William as being "in attendance" are members of his staff:

Dr Simon Case is Private Secretary.
Jason Knauf is a Senior Advisor to the Cambridges, previously Communications Secretary.
Christian Jones is Communications Secretary.

They all travelled with William to NZ. The senior staff that travel with the royals are usually listed on the Court Circular for departures / arrivals.

“Whilst the prominence of media headlines may inject short-term attention, the love and respect of the people, William will one day reign over, endures for much longer. It is here where William’s royal and public power far outrivals any other.”

Quote:
Every-so-often we are reminded of the powerful influence our Royal Family has. From charity work, global events, patronages, to the influential fashion choices. But they also, in times of deep pain and suffering, highlight how an ancient institution can heal wounds.

And once again we saw this process in action after the devastating terror attack in New Zealand. Attending on behalf of the Queen, Prince William highlighted how the Royals can be a force of good, unity and poignant respect. Something the Duke of Cambridge exemplified as he visited the Christchurch community.

With these trips now a common occurrence in the Duke’s role as ambassador for the Royal Family, what does it tell us about the future of the British Monarchy and their vision for the indelible institution on both the national and international stage?

What a wonderful read! It is my thought as well. I strongly agree with the whole article!

Another paragraph that aligns with my observation and my point of view from this article is this one

Quote:
In recent months we have seen criticism of other members of the Royals and how they conduct themselves when partaking in their own engagements. Sometimes the balance between personality and professionalism can become blurred, resulting in a tainting of the royal mystique. This unfortunate behaviour most frequently results in the numerous articles and public attention focusing on the royal individual and not on the subject of their visit.

This is never the case with the Duke of Cambridge. Each and every time he steps out, his attention is consistently focused on the job-in-hand, not himself. Christchurch’s visit has been the embodiment of this. Yes, the Prince hugged numerous worshippers who had been affected by the attack. Yes, he jokingly stated to royal fans that jetlag no longer affects him after having three children. But when the moment arrived for William to step back, and the Duke of Cambridge and future king to take centre stage, it was done with remarkable ease.

The media don't focus on the subject of the visit these days. They write about what the women are wearing and how much it cost - with some mention of maybe the way the royals interact with each other. When was the last time an article in the media or anywhere else actually focussed on the cause that was the reason for the visit?

Prince William did well on this official visit, but that doesn't change the fact that there is no guarantee that William and even less so George will ever be the King of New Zealand. Actually, it is very likely that Australia and New Zealand will be republics 30 years from now. William has a better shot at being King of Canada, but that is just a guess on my part.
