Royal Wedding Story
 

Prince William of Wales KG FRS, William Arthur Philip Louis was born on 21 June 1982. He is the elder son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales, and grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

 He is second in the line of succession, behind his father, to the thrones of Australia, Canada New Zealand, the United Kingdom and 12 other  independent states.
 

After graduating with a Master of Arts degree from the University of St Andrews, and spending parts of a gap year in Chile, Belize, and countries in Africa, he volunteered for service in the armed forces.




...military service...


 
 

He was commissioned as a Lieutenant in the Blues and Royals regiment of the Household Cavalry,  serving with his brother Prince Harry.
 He then earned his wings by completing pilot training at Royal Air Force College Cranwell, transferring to the Royal Air Force in 2009.
 

Prince William was promoted to Flight Lieutenant and underwent helicopter flying training and completed  generic and special-to-type helicopter training. 
He is now at RAF Valley on No. 22 Squadron performing co-pilot duties on the Sea King search and rescue helicopter.



...wedding....

 



On 16 November 2010 it was announced that Prince William and Catherine Middleton were to marry on 29 April 2011. It was later announced that this would be at 11.00 am in Westminster Abbey, London.

Republicans spitting chips. Print E-mail
Prince William & Catherine
Written by Professor David Flint AM   
Tuesday, 12 April 2011


Republicans are not happy. Indeed some are spitting chips.

Rather than working out what they are proposing in relation to the the constitutional system and our Flag, they spend much  of their time in personal attacks on the Royal Family and of course, constitutional monarchists. 

Having been unwelcome about Prince William's 2010 visit, they have run stories against him in the lead-up to the wedding and repeated unfounded gossip and innuenedo against Prince Andrew. The campaign against Prince Andrew is obviously intended as a distraction.



Some republicans are now calling for a boycott of the Royal Wedding. They are suggesting that instead of watching the wedding they get together to discuss a republic.

The couldl use the time to work out what has eluded them for over ten years- just what they are actually proposing.

It is time for the republicans to do this themselves and not have the taxpayers fund yet another attempt.

After all there have been eleven such taxpayer funded exercises in Australia diverting millions from hospitals, schools etc.

...United Kingdom republicans...

 

According to the Daily Telegraph Sydney (9/4l, the United Kingdom republicans are holding an alternative street party in Covent Garden on the day of the wedding.

A pretty mean spirited group who make threats if they don’t get their way and indulge in very personal campaigns, the United Kingdom republicans work closely with the Australian Republican Movement.

However their intelligence on Australia is somewhat dated.
 They say on their website:

“Australia currently leads the Commonwealth in the republican debate with the leaders of both main federal political parties now committed republic supporters.

"Most recent Australian prime ministers have been supporters of a republic.”

In any event, on 30 April, let’s compare the TV ratings with the republican party attendances.
