How active was the DoE as a patron? Is it really a baby step in Willy finally being a senior royal...

These are filler patronages to make them look busy anybody can be a Patron for x amount of years without lifting a finger.The Palace knows that they have to make it look like William is slowly becoming a senior Royal and by giving one of DoE's they can make it bigger than it really is and make it like William is important.

While Prince Harry wants to bring America’s ‘warrior games’ for disabled veterans to Britain, his brother, I can reveal, has plans to put his passion for animal welfare on the map.

William is planning to follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather by presenting a documentary about the plight of wildlife in Africa.

He will both narrate the film — by production company Spun Gold — and appear in it out in the field.

Part of the programme will focus on awards which the Prince hopes will be televised every year.

One gong will recognise an individual’s life-long contribution to conservation, and among those shortlisted, I understand, is Virginia McKenna, actress and founder of the Born Free charity.

The one-hour film, expected to be shot this summer, will include archive footage of Prince Philip talking about the need to protect wildlife through international agreements, with William discussing his grandfather’s commitment to animal rights.

How exciting.  bored3 So this means he'll be away this summer filming this stuff and no-one will see him. I thought he would be too busy being the "hands on dada" we've been told about. Just what is occurring?

There are many documents out there concerning this problem already. William is wasting money that could be used to deter poaching.

Is Jecca living in Africa? What a strange thing for a new father to be doing. I'm more convinced that Waity's not pregnant, IMO.

^^ Yes, and didn't they say William was going to quit the RAF because he wanted to be with his family more?  And now he is going to quit his "job" and spend all his time in Africa playing with endangered animals?  bored3

Watch for the DM headlines:  "Brave Kate faces new motherhood alone," "Heroic New Mum Kate fears for Prince William's Safety in Africa," "Inspiring New Mum Kate endures unbearable stress as single parent without any maternity nurses, nannies, or child minders."

BTW you know they are going to switch from always calling her "Pregnant Kate" to "New Mum Kate."  And I'm gonna call it now, we will see "Brave New Mum Kate" at least ONCE.

Another African charity?

Someone should tell him there is this place called "England" and since he's going to be king of it, he should help out there.

Maybe the RF is trying to bring African countries back into the colonial fold.

If harry managed to get the old thirteen back, plus the rest of the United States, I am dead sure that HM would feint with joy.

I wonder how William will handle this presidency. It's not like he's really all that prominent anymore. Before his marriage he was the Golden Guy, but then threw it away on her and he's shrank to the tabloid magazines and even then, not at the top of the page anymore. On the world stage, he's even less.
