William needs to buy pants with an extra inch in the inseam.  These aren't the style of pants you can wear cropped.

Yyyeeeeeaaahhhh I'm getting tired of the moose knuckle.

EXCERPT: Wills: "They talk about being the best the whole time. You're physically trained to do all the stuff you do, but never once in the process was the mental aspect of what you were going to see at war time or war fighting... never was that actually processed through 'how do we actually train people physically and mentally be the best soldier?'

An Army spokesperson said: 'We take the mental health of our personnel extremely seriously, and resilience training is an important part of our duty of care. 'The MOD has increased spending on mental health to £22million a year, and we are working hard to tackle the stigma around coming forward and asking for help.'

Wills desperately needs to add a copy of Dale Carnegie's "How to win friends and Influence people" to his reading list  (if he has one).

Yup. He's still an ignorant idiot. William, you half-arsed courses in the armed forces, did the bare minimum because the powers that be allowed minimal training, rarely showed up for work during your time in the RAF, stfu.

I don’t know if I can hate on Will for this. We cry “mental health, mental health” today but it’s paid lip service in a lot of these areas (military, paramilitary organizations) If it wasn’t and isn’t being handled sufficiently than William has every right to call it out exactly as he experienced it.

My problem with William is exemplified by emphatic statements such as "never once in the process...".  William's military training was never going to be the same as every other soldier's.  He was not being trained to be a career soldier and go to the front and risk his life and take other lives.  And he should know this.   Yes, I am sure that the training about the mental issues is deficient in some respects and when administered by some trainers, but William was always going to be a toy soldier and his experiences are the experiences of the future king and therefore not experiences from which a lot of meaningful information can be gleaned about the experiences of the majority.   I would pay more attention to what Harry has to say about these matters.

IMVHO William never should have been allowed to join the military...at least FT.  Hear me out during his three summers in college he should have undertook "training" with each main branch (Army, Navy, Air Force).  Following his graduation from St. Andrew's he should have undertaken diplomatic training (a la FCO Fast Stream) and at 25 (2007) he should have started being a FT royal.  His military stuff post St. Andrew's should had been limited to the reserves.

Also he should have been strongly encouraged to do a degree in something like Law, International Relations, etc.  Art History then Geography are odd major choices for a future HOS.  I also think that dating a "working royal" may have helped Kate* truly understand what her married life would have been like.  Yes, they're both getting better but William's schedule is still weak and he didn't become are "working royal" until 35 (a decade after what I would have wanted). 

*She's far better than some (and the last year has been her best) but at the end of the day I doubt she'll ever be a heavy hitter (like Anne) and probably would have been happier married to someone rich without the duties.  William being fake military and then Air Ambulance didn't give her the full picture...IMVHO.

I don't think William would have had the academic ability to enrol in Law etc. Your thoughts re his preparation for adult life and royal duties is on the mark. He has been allowed to play at what he wanted to do. But then - his father is still waiting for his "job" - how many heirs do you need on the sidelines ? I don't get a sense that William has any causes that he has a real passion for or even an interest in. His father does and worked hard to advance and support them over many years. I see the "mental health" platform as being an extension of "poor me - my mother died when I was young". It is his "get out of jail card" for anything - to enable him to do what he wants, and to excuse him from any responsibility that he does not want to take on. The BRF did him - and his brother - no favours - they should have been told to grow up and get on with it a long long time ago.

 Star Star  One for each of you.

Though Charles is still waiting for the top job, he has made being Prince of Wales a job in itself, and an important one, while he's been in it, and he's worked  hard at it and achieved a lot.  He has carved out a niche for himself, and I don't see any evidence that William has done the same, or even really tried.  Yes, Charles' situation was different in that it was clear that he would be Prince of Wales for many years and needed to find productive and meaningful ways to spend his time, and it probably won't be long at all till William steps up to the next rung on the ladder.  However he could, and should IMO, have started doing something concrete five years ago, but he just seems to have been pfaffing around doing busy work.  I feel he should have made more of an effort.  He hasn't shown any inclination to step into his father's shoes with the Prince's Trust, etc., which would have been a sensible succession plan, but he wants to do his own thing.  Problem is, his thing doesn't amount to much.

I have to laugh the way people say they’ll change once they’re the heir couple.  They’re already mid-30s...what we see is who they are it’s not like some switch get flips when the Queen dies. 

And the way William says he can’t do more because his 90 something year old grandparents do so much is such bull.  If he had started at 25 (like I wanted) they would have been only 81 & 86...well past retirement age. 

If QEII has the longevity of her mother QEQM then William could easily be 45 before becoming the heir and any radical changes will be very unlikely.

They'll start as they mean to go on. Nothing will change. You can't change a person's work ethic and they won't change because why is there any impetus to do so?

I never understood why they were allowed to wait so long before becoming working royals. Excuse after excuse was made, and will still be made, as to why they can't or won't work hard. They'll pull more out of a hat, especially William.

This week is actually what I wished he'd do very week of the school year (a bit better than my plan actually which was 4 days and 2 engagements each day).  Now what I'd really like is a photographer (or two) in each household.  It could easily be an internship but this person would take photographs of the meeting and receiving stuff that the royal rota doesn't cover (or isn't invited to cover).  Think of a royal version of the POTUS, FLOTUS, and VPOTUS photographers.  Heck even a videographer (like the Queen's cameraman) for both Charles and William would be great.

The Swedes do this well too.  Theres at least 1 photo posted on their website for each event. If it's a meeting it's just the group at the table. Obviously the photographer isn't in the way because it's a one and done shot.

He's worked five out of the past seven days?? I'm shocked. I would love to see him keep up this pace. If his father and aunts and uncles can, it's time he stepped up too.
