Paging Dr. McDreamy: Prince William Looks Like He Stepped Out of Grey's Anatomy Today

McDreamy and McSteamy may be long gone from Grey’s Anatomy, but Prince William is here to fill the void.

William visited Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust in London on Wednesday, where he got a closer look at two top surgeons using advanced robotic surgical technology called a da Vinci XI machine. Dressed in a pair of light blue scrubs and cap, William — who serves as the President of the Royal Marsden, a hospital his mother Princess Diana worked with as well — the royal dad looked just like a doctor (or like he could play one on TV).

Though he’s not quite ready to hold the scalpel himself, William watched the surgeons operate on two different cancer patients. Observing the work of Professor Vinidh Paleri and his team, William said it all looked a bit like something a little more familiar: playing video games.

And a pink tie with light grey suit and dark grey jumpers... and slacks and jumpers... the blue suit is Okay but the way he does it is overkill... at least he doesn't wear the double-breasted.suits his father wore in the 80s/90s.

Obviously both the British government and the governments of the countries to be visited believe he has a reason to go.

The 70th anniversary of the establishment of Israel seems to be a major reason for the visit, which is in keeping with many other countries who want to have British royals visit when they have these celebrations e.g. Sri Lanka had the Wessex's visit for their 70th anniversary earlier this year.

It is clear that the British government feels William is up to the sensitive diplomacy that will be needed on this trip.


Title: Re: Duke of Cambridge Engagements 2018
Post by: Rosella on March 01, 2018, 10:29:50 pm
I think this also signals a change of policy by the British Government towards Israel, under Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. Successive British Governments have discouraged such trips to Israel by senior royals. Now the 70th anniversary of the founding of the State of Israel is coming up, (referring back to a rather tumultuous period for British Middle Eastern policy) it's a very favourable time for a visit.

Theresa May disagrees with you however. She, and her government, have made the decision to send William so obviously they think he is the right person to send. They know what business he will have there and they know the reason/s why they are sending him there.

William is highly regarded by the British government for the way he has conducted himself on overseas visits so far and they very much believe he is the right person to send on this visit.

Yes, a total embarrassment.  If running true to form the rf will have ordered May to send them overseas, that is how it usually works, as they are so rigid and boring I doubt the system has changed.  He doesn´t read up on anything, he really is a bore, and always looks uncomfortable, dressed wrongly.  The guy is not fit to represent the UK in my opinion  -  just a free trip overseas for the tight little so and so.

I wonder how trained diplomats feel about this; William sounds like he can barely speak and he's getting a trip like this while those who do the actual work basically get shunted aside and taken for granted.


Title: Re: Duke of Cambridge Engagements 2018
Post by: meememe on March 03, 2018, 11:46:42 pm
William has been trained as a diplomat since he was born.

He may not have a piece of paper from a university but he has been trained by the Queen - the most experienced diplomat in the world (also with no formal qualifications but still regarded very highly in this field) - so I suspect that official diplomats are well aware of William's strengths and weaknesses in this area.

The diplomats will be part of the team around William - he leads a team and isn't on his own. Yes he will have one on one meetings with the leaders which is what his role is while the diplomats and other government officials are having meetings behind closed doors on a range of issues.

William is quite intelligent and is able to converse on a range of issues. He is also learning a lot more.

As for saying 'he can barely speak' I think that is a wild exaggeration. He has a degree from a respected university as well as a number of A-levels from school. He will be only the second British monarch to have even set foot in a school, after his father.

How the British train their monarchs and how the Europeans train theirs is different because of the different roles they play within their own countries. Not every monarch has the same powers or roles.

William, like the Queen, has learnt already the most important lesson - say nothing of any consequence to anyone, ever. That is the basis of the BRF's power - none. Charles is the one who hasn't learnt that lesson and it will cost him dearly if he isn't careful.


Title: Re: Duke of Cambridge Engagements 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on March 04, 2018, 12:19:18 am
I find that difficult to believe since William is unable to speak fluently, much less speak well in other languages. If he's so smart, why was he unable to see through the Midds and effectively become a doormat and alleged co-conspirator in a possible surrogacy? Why can't he get his consort in line with his preferences? William has no business leading anything mainly since he can't even assert himself in his own household.


Title: Re: Duke of Cambridge Engagements 2018
Post by: meememe on March 04, 2018, 12:47:13 am
William can speak fluently - and does so quite a lot.

He loves the Middleton's because they have the family life he didn't have growing up with the constant arguments between his parents and being shunted form one parent to the other from the age of about 4 (the official separation was later but the effective separation occurred much earlier - about 1984 from my sources).

He adores both Mr and Mrs Middleton and is way closer to them than he is to Charles or even Harry these days, preferring the company of the Middleton's - both parents and siblings, to any of the royals.

He believes that a family should be a partnership and he and Kate make all the decisions together - not one making the decisions and the other forced to agree. They have done exactly what they have done over the years with the full blessing of The Queen - she is actually envious that they have been able to have those years to build their marriage and family - something she was denied and then denied her heir and his wife because of his sense of duty and the press and public's insistence on seeing Diana in public. By allowing William and Kate the privacy and the time she is hopeful that they will have a solid marriage that will last for another 50+ years.

Post by: sandy on March 04, 2018, 01:12:21 am
I think William's speech is not the best and can be improved. He ers and ums a lot.

William did live under the same roof as both parents.  And the Wales still had the Christmas cards as a family and there were photos of them attending events with their parents. And when they were not at home they were off at school.  Charles and Diana lived separate lives but much of 1984 they were together as a couple. Diana even said they were close right before Harry was born. Charles and Diana were keeping up appearances until ca. 1991. They traveled together they went together to school events involving the boys.

Harry and William are close and always have been. Of course he'd be closer to his wife but I doubt he's closer the his in laws than he is to his brother.

I am not sure how the Queen feels. I think that Wiliam and Kate's workshy habits have nothing to do with the Queen wanting them to have  "family life." They don't work 35 hours a week and are not rarely with the children. Royals CAN work a few hours a week and not ruin the children. I don't buy into many of the excuses for Will and Kate not working much. Kate managed to go on a vacation with WIlliam when George was a baby, she goes to "fun events" and leaves the children. But work, forget about it.

I agree with you india./

Diana was expected to be seen in public as the wife of the heir and Diana had a work ethic. Charles was "denied" the family life because he preferred another woman and started spending too much time with her.

I don't know who makes the decisions in the Household of Kate and William. But it was said she wanted the third child but he was less enthusiastic. So much for joint decisions.

Post by: dianab on March 04, 2018, 01:41:47 am
Diana herself said she had a hard time attending to engagements in early months and years of marriage and she'd rather prefer privacy - so it's no news - even if the queen had been given a private life in early years of her marriage, her priority was always philip, horses and corgis and not her kids

William can speak fluently - and does so quite a lot.

He loves the Middleton's because they have the family life he didn't have growing up with the constant arguments between his parents and being shunted form one parent to the other from the age of about 4 (the official separation was later but the effective separation occurred much earlier - about 1984 from my sources).

Funny part of it is he loathes so badly the press but is close to this desesparate fame-*sleazy* the Middletons are... what was he thinking of engagement and wedding of Pippa? she hired a Beckham PR person to put her daily in DM for months... called all the media to her wedding... that woman is so exasperate as that crazy American family


Title: Re: Duke of Cambridge Engagements 2018
Post by: sandy on March 04, 2018, 01:52:49 am
It is odd that the Queen said she missed "family time." However she left young Charles and Anne with her parents while she and Philip lived "normally." It is not "normal" to spend time away from the children. The Queen could have had her family time with Charles and Anne had she brought them with her to Malta and they all stayed together.  The Queen also did not give birth in Malta so much of her time had to be in London.

Kate who complained about "the press" used them to push her agenda to "win back William"  in 2007.Every week she'd appear with very short skirt  at a nightclub looking worse for wear and seen with other men and her face would be all over the papers. This from someone who wants "privacy".

Diana may have been unused to being in the public eye early on but she really was interested in her work as a royal and did not avoid it. Charles did not have the "home life" because he preferred the mistress and would fax messages to William and Harry. Even after Diana died, his first priority was the Mistress.

Nice to see him taking an interest in something that is dear to his father's heart. Usually he does all he can to distance himself from his father's interests (other than polo). Maybe he will take on some of his father's work in time ...

I don't think William speaks well at all, especially for someone of his age and being an heir to the throne. And why does it matter about his university and A-levels? Rumor has it that his staff helped him a lot with his degree because he was lazy and even contemplated dropping out at one point. Besides, his A-levels are from 2000 and his degree is from 2005... not exactly recent achievements. Even if he was some great speaker back then (doubtful), he is clearly out of practice now. And you don't have to go to university in order to speak well. Lots of things can be learned on one's own these days.

I hope PW picks up the number of appearances, but it's doubtful with the new baby coming soon.

William is probably having the paternity leave (from what?) and Kate supposedly won't be doing appearances until the Fall to be with the children (she could not possibly emerge for an hour to do work but she will probably be front and center at Wimbledon and a vacation is in the works). William still has bad speech, ers ums and so on.

Prince William to visit the West Bank during an official trip to Israel just weeks after 58 Palestinians were killed during bloody clashes over the US embassy
Quote
His trip has been welcomed by governments in the region, with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu describing it as ‘historic’. Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas has also hailed the trip – the first official visit by any member of the Royal Family to the Occupied Palestinian Territories – as a ‘unique and special opportunity’.
While individual royals have visited Israel in a private capacity, there has never been an official trip on behalf of the Government.

^^Considering all that's gone on in that area recently and the fact that members of the younger generation (see Prince Hussein of Jordan) is being integrated into the forefront, it's pretty smart of them to send William. I'm not putting it past him to not put his foot in his mouth but consider the options:

Charles/Charles & Camilla - That region is starting to integrate the younger generation into their roles. By comparison, the Cornwalls are not the "future."

William w/Kate - This is an extremely conservative region of the world. We've already got evidence of Kate's less-than-modest behavior from previous tours. IMO, she's more likely to do or say something offensive than William is of saying something stupid and not being able to recover from it.

Harry & Meghan - Again, consider the conservative climate and customs in that region. Do any of you really trust Motor Mouth Markle: Patron Saint of Feminist and Fallopian Tubes to not say or do something that ruins any goodwill the UK has with the leaders in that region?

It's good though that Bill goes, he has to learn, he's indeed the "future", and he usually does well when K's not with him. Chuck's there often enough anyway, Bill must build up his own connections, it's high time.

^ I suppose sandy means after Will's Middle Easter solo tour, b/c she'll be on maternity leave until fook knows, June/ July for sure and August is a non working month for the Winds anyway. They already announced through the grapevine that she wants a longer maternity leave this time, school etc starts Sept, so I expect we won't see her "regularly" and off maternity leave until Sept or even Oct. After that a tour with all the Cambs is def possible, it would have to be during school holidays though if the kids are to go too.

Yes that's exactly what I meant. I do think they will want to take the children along when Louis gets older. They did take baby George on a tour and later the two toddlers on another tour. I think that is their way. Showing "happy families" and Kate and Will seem to like the photo ops like the one they did with George in his bathrobe greeting Obama.  I see a lot more of these photo ops in future. I do think she is going to take a long leave but I expect she will show up at Wimbledon and leave the kids for vacations.

Motorcycle enthusiast Prince William flew to the Isle of Man for one of the world’s top races on Wednesday.

William, 35, who still rides a high-powered Ducati (which he recently used to get him to a soccer match with pals!), went to watch the famous festival on the small island between Britain and Ireland. And while the prince couldn’t wait to take in the event, his wife Kate Middleton didn’t share the same excitement.

William confessed Kate may have been a little skeptical of the intentions of his visit. When Laurence Skelly, the Isle of Man government’s minister for enterprise, asked him about her views. William told him, “When I said I was going to the Isle of Man for an official visit she said, ‘Really?

However, courtiers have chosen the same week to publish the royals’ accounts, always headline fodder. Even worse, he’ll have to compete with Meghan, who is off to a Commonwealth awards ceremony with the Queen.
No wonder friends say William is sometimes bad-tempered.

The annual accounts are always published during the final week in June so this isn't anything that was targeted against William. The government planned the date of the trip and new the dates for the annual reports - nothing to do with the rest of the BRF.

Macron and the French Prime Minister thought this event was so important they stayed on their holidays.

The Sussexes were never supposed to attend this event. It was always announced as a William only event.

11th November will be different as they will, no doubt, be a bit scattered. As the 11/11 falls on a Sunday this year I expect Charles to take the lead at the Cenotaph as he did last year with The Queen and Philip on the balcony but I wouldn't be surprised if William and Kate are back in France and maybe Harry and Meghan in Belgium for any commemorations there for the end of the war - or the other way round. Then again maybe the BRF will all be together in the UK and none at any commemorations in France or Belgium.

In 1998 The Queen visited both France and Belgium on the 11/11 but it wasn't on a Sunday. In 2008 Charles and Camilla went to the commemorations for the end of the war at Verdun and the Duchess of Gloucester attended the event at the Cenotaph but that was on a Tuesday so not the main Remembrance Day event in the UK.

So true. If you get the chance to go it is well worth the visit.

The battle fields of France are somewhere I think everyone should visit (especially if from a country that fought there). The Somme is a regular place for Aussies to visit of course, and that includes Amiens. Verdun is also worth a visit as it is the French main site - with many villages having been so totally destroyed they were never rebuilt - and nearby is the main American WWI memorial. So sad to see the dates for so many of the young Americans - 11th November, 1918 figures prominently on both the headstones and the list of the missing for the Americans there. I suspect that many Americans visit the Normandy beaches (and rightly so) but miss the WWI sites further east.

Kate was not really in a secure place during the courtship. There were cooling off periods and breakups with Will jumping on a table yelling "I'm Free."

I do believe that despite being a possible Queen Consort, she is not yet Princess of Wales and Kate is not married to a man who loves her and genuinely wants her around. She is married to someone who was already VERY frustrated and impatient with her during 2012, just barely a year after their marriage. William for all we know could be plotting her removal from his life the minute he gets the chance. She should know how ruthless he can be, after all, she's used that ruthlessness to her benefit.

It’s quite foolish to believe that with social media Wills can play his bs games like he did years before.

Prince William made a comment worthy of his gaffe-prone grandfather as he visited Japan House in London on Thursday.

The Duke of Cambridge, 34, asked a group of schoolchildren whether they had tried 'much Chinese food' as they practised picking up edamame with chopsticks at the new centre celebrating Japanese culture.

He quickly corrected himself, adding: 'Um, Japanese food. Have you had much Japanese food? No? Not too much. Do you like sushi? It's delicious, it really is yummy.'

I think saving him is well nigh impossible and I do believe that it would be futile at this point in time. During his twenties hi family TRIED to get him on a good track and tried to get him to focus on duties, but he chose instead to leave the boundaries of royal life, the life that the courtiers meticulously mapped out for him, and then chose to mess around with Kate, be her white knight, and foisted the Middleton BS on the world stage. Now his life is a mess and he's still brainlessly playing to the gallery. He had his chance at the best of both worlds and I am certain that if he had stayed on track, he would have the respect he yearns for right now.

He's a loser. Just a plain and simple loser.
