For UK residents there's a documentary about him on Thursday night on Channel Four called "The Other Prince William".

Does it touch on the fact he had porphyria?
No idea. I'll report back if I get a chance to watch it. I think it tells the story of his relationship with a Hungarian divorcee, which wasn't exactly met with great joy by his family.

The other Prince William

The Queen's dashing cousin William of Gloucester died in 1972 when his light aircraft crashed to the ground in an air race. But his secret Hungarian lover has never forgotten about their 'fairytale' romance

Birgitte opened a homeless shelter in Hertfordshire yesterday. Absolutely love her outfit (esp. the color), except for that dopey "mushroom" hat. Wish she'd lose it.

Today she's visiting The Children's Society (a CoE charity of which she's President), and a girls' school in Manchester.

Exactly. They do much more to support "Queen and country" than some members of the younger generation who are so much closer to the throne, and they do it with no fuss or fanfare, they just get on with it. Admirable, IMO. I imagine HM is very grateful for their attitude of service.

@Lady Alice: If you're alluding to the Worknots, I think they're far more likely to privately ridicule Richard and Birgitte as "suckers" for actually fulfilling their responsibilities

And if you think R&B do a lot (which they do, IMO), wait 'til you see Anne's schedule, which I hope to post later today...

Compared to W&K, the Gloucesters work a full-time schedule - impressive, and with very little fanfare.  Lots of royals could take a page from their book.
