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....

As Australia’s official coin producer for 45 years and in keeping with the tradition of celebrating milestones of the Royal Family, the Royal Australian Mint is proud to be releasing these commemorative collectible 50 cent coins to celebrate the engagement of Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton.




...great honour....

"It is a great honour for the Royal Australian Mint to present this coin design. It has been officially approved by the Her Majesty The Queen and is one of the few royal collectibles to have gone through that process," said the Royal Australian Mint Chief Executive Officer Mr Ross MacDiarmid.

The coin, dated 2010 to mark the year of the engagement, was designed by The Queen’s goldsmith and jeweller Mr Stuart Devlin who has also designed a number of Australia’s circulating coin designs.

"The coin features some of Mr Devlin’s trademark designs so as The Queen’s jeweller it makes it even more of a collectible and a special addition to any royal collection," said Mr MacDiarmid.

The design will feature on two products. For those that just want a small collectible to remember this moment a commemorative 50 cent coin in card will be on sale in-store tomorrow.

A selectively gold-plated two coin set (can be pre-ordered now and on sale in-store on Monday) will initially house the royal engagement coin with the exclusive wedding coin to be sent out once officially released. Both products can be ordered online (www.ramint.gov.au) or through the Mint’s Call Centre (1300 652 020).

The Royal Wedding Coin design, featuring a portrait of the couple, will be released in the coming weeks leading up to the wedding. And a treat for those royal followers, from April there will be a royal display at the Mint showcasing all of the royal products the Mint has released over the years.
