The man who will be king

  1. As I recall there are a number or #2's (sic) that made it to the big seat.

    And he flys Sea King helicopters for a, ahem, living. Not the most reliable of devices.

    … I'm not saying, per say, I'm just saying.

  6. Can we please start a "draft Harry to be the Canadian sovereign" movement? I'm all for Canada staying a monarchy, but it would be really nice to not have to share a sovereign with 15 other lesser countries.

  8. lesser countries.. har har

  9. As someone who works with marginalized people, I have to say that most people, including William, could learn a fair bit by spending a night out on the street.Theoretical knowledge is one thing, hands on experience is entirely another.

    • I agree. Many of us have probably camped out many times in warm sleeping bags in rainproof tents in the summertime, but hardly any of us have ever slept outdoors in below-freezing temperatures, even for one night, let alone month after month. I applaud William for his experiment. It's one night in his life he won't forget.

      • Ah, but did he learn something from it? And will he do something about it?
        One night out, when you return to a palace the next day, is not so bad. A long series of nights out, wondering if you can get out of the jam you are in…. Ah, now, that, that my friend, is something else.
        There are AT LEAST two attitudes to take:
        (1) That they all belong on the street, the trash (also known to some as the Rush Limbaugh Opinion)… and
        (2) That no human deserves this. So, why? What happened? What can we do about it? Sadly, I have no answers. But I am a mere commoner! Not a King!
        Of course, some say that their misfortune is the will of some invisible deity thing, and we should not meddle….
        Discuss amongst yourselves!

      • "King William" was very well protected (probably by SAS men) in his little escapade in Afganistan!!! Do you think that they would let little "precious" all by his little lonesome fighting with the other shmucks? Just a publicity stunt!
        May the future King William reign long over the colonies of Canada, Australia, NZ and all of the British Empire (oh sorry for the euphomism Commonwealth) for many, many decades to come! We wll never be citizens,only subjects!

        • Harry served in Afghanistan, not William

          And no, Canadians haven't been 'subjects' since the 1940's. We are citizens of Canada.

  11. well it looks like we will be bored to death in every form of media from now until the weding and for how long after is anyone's guess

    He is a lovely young man and wish him luck!!

    • I think it's lovely. It's a really good boost to the UK economy and something positive for the people. Lord know they need it.

  22. I just watched CTV, and Kate would like the Media to refer to her as Katherine henceforth, which makes sense. Congratulations to them both.

  24. Kinda creepy that Katherine wears Diana's ring, but apparently Diana wanted William's future wife to have it.

    Poor Prince Charles has spent a lifetime waiting for the job and now everyone will want William as King.

    Sounds like Williams is less of a flake than his father and also his mother. I love the British tradition of having their children serve in the armed forces. Most of the American 'aristocracy' (ruling class and politicians) keeps their children well out of the military.

    • Yes. And that (The lack of US version of a British Military Tradition) is sad.
      It would improve the USA a great deal, if their aristocracy served in their armed forces.
      Come to think of it, it would improve Canada a great deal, too….
      Imagine a GG who could actually defend Canada (as opposed to being a Separatist)?
      But Jumping Jack, Stevie Wonder, or Dizzy Issie armed with anything more than a water gun?
      Yikes! Run! Run for the Hills! Run, Forest, Run!!!

    • I actually think that Catherine wearing Diana's ring is very moving and a lovely gesture, I think William thinks the world of her to have choose to give her that ring.

      Unless Charles quits or dies, he will be King, they CAN NOT jump a generation, it will never happen.

  26. Agree…Also my Grandaughter is looking forward to seeing a '' real live Prince and Princess, not like the ones on Disney ! '' and she also plans on putting on her'' Princess Dress'' when she watches the Wedding on T.V. …..May the Legacy live on for our future Generations to see……p.s. If she gets her way, I will be wearing my Sunday going to meeting clothes that day I suppose……Sigh….

  29. I was in London on a summer holiday with my grandmother when Charles and Diana got married, I was 13 years old, it was insane, it is one of my favorite memories mostly because of my grandmother but she was thrilled to be there, I was grumpy, now I think it was pretty cool.

    I hope you and your grandaughter enjoy it and have lots of fun, and wear your sunday clothes, heck, even have a nice wedding brunch, she will remember that forever!!!
