Prince William turns 30 in a couple weeks and has been promoted to Captain in the Royal Air Force. Here's how his interview with Katie Couric compares with Prince Charles's 1975 interview with Women's Own Magazine

Apparently, what the newspaper means is that Prince William has become an aircraft captain, in other words the senior pilot in a two-pilot aircraft, rather than a co-pilot as previously.

The Duchess of Cambridge during his early arrival at the National Portrait Gallery, July 19, 2012, for the exhibition Road to 2012: Aiming High. The Duchess of Cambridge, always attentive to detail, wore a dress of a British designer (Stella McCartney) and a collar nod to gold and the Olympic rings.

A very interesting review.

Personally I can't bear Junor.  Every time that I've seen her interviewed on the subject of Charles and Diana there has been such an unpleasant tone to her pronouncements on their marriage that I have often wondered quite what her real agenda is. 

Objective is never a word that comes to mind when I think of Junor and her opinions.

I believe this is His Royal Highness' first rescue while being the "captain" of the helicopter.

I think it's a very special  job for a future king to be rescuing his future subjects.

The itinerary for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Diamond Jubilee tour of the South Pacific has been released. The Duchess's solo engagement at a reception for women's groups in the Solomon Islands has the potential to improve the status of women in this commonwealth nation.
