Prince William tries to live a normal life, but being royalty makes it just too hard (Morton, Diana: Her True Story, 79). “He is the most fascinating person of 1997,” says Walters (Unknown, Facts on Prince William, 1). Prince William lives an active life where he deals with disappointments of the past, but family members help him deal with the future.
In Paddington, London William was born at St. Mary’s Hospital (Gilmer, The Royal Archive, 1). Prince William Arthur Phillip Louis Mountbatten Windsor (Prince William) was born on the twenty-first of June in 1982 at approximately 9:03 PM (1). When the young boy first arrived, Queen Elizabeth II said at the hospital, “Thank goodness he hasn’t ears like his father” (Morton, Diana Her True Story, 79).
The birth of this child was glorious for he would one day rule Whales. The title of this prince would be known as either King William 5th of the House of the Windsor or King William 5th of the House of Spencer (Holdon, “Will William ever be King” Newsweek 47). This Prince averaging 6’2″, weighing 140-145 pounds, with sandy blonde hair and hazel eyes is everything a girl could dream (Gilmer 1). Of the many hobbies and sports the Prince loves to do, he mostly enjoys shooting, skiing, rafting, rowing on the Thanes River, and swimming (Gilmer 2). Another hobby of William’s is painting (2). Many people say he is really good at it (2).
Also, in his free time he watches as much TV as possible so that he can stay informed of the world around him (2). This young love is a Cancer although his Birthday is borderline between Gemini and Cancer, but the sun moved into cancer at 5:23 PM United Kingdom Time. Therefore, Since he was born at 9:03 PM that makes him a cancer (Unknown 2, Prince William Fact sheet 2). There are many foods and drinks that William has taken a like to such as pasta, hamburgers, chocolate, venison, fruit salads, poached eggs from hens on his fathers estate, coke, and red wine (Gilmer 2). His Uncle Earl Spencer says that his characters are very different from the public image (Morton 149). “The press have always written up William is the terror and Harry as the rather quiet second son (149).
He also has a black Labrador retriever named Widgeon (Unknown 1). Oh and also girls this man is able to marry anyone he chooses as long as his loving grandma approves of her first (Gilmer 2). Not only do you have to go through his grandmother, but also they hold all his mail back so that he can study in school (Auldsey, No title, People Weekly 59). “In September Harry will join William at Eton College Britain’s primmer private school, for the best education the pound sterling can buy”, quoted Anthony Holden (Holden 47).
Of the many schools that The Prince has attended, he has attended West London, Inkensington London, Ludgrave School in Workingham, and the present college Eton. The tuition of this very exclusive college is $25,000 (Unknown 1). He is studying geography, biology, and art history (Hubbard, “Crown Jewel” People Weekly). Also at college he enjoys disco clubs, driving, and playing sports (Unknown 1). In March of 1997, he was confirmed into the Church of England (Graham, Diana, Princess of Whales 5).
Although William enjoys these things, he will not rush into his full time royal duties but stay at his college boards and keep specializing at A level courses (Holdon 41). Once, Harry and William were discussing their future plans to their mother and William said, “When I grow up I went to be a policeman and look over you mommy” (Morton Diana Her True Story 149). Princess Diana (his “mummy”) would soon need some one to look over her. William and his mother were very close. William would always go to her with advice from his mother no matter what kind it was, but when she didn’t know the answer she sent him to his father (Kay “William and Harry” Ladies Home Journal 174).
On Prince William’s 15th birthday, his mother surprised him with a cake decorated with topless female figures, but of course, his father was away visiting school chums (Hubbard 57). Prince William used to take trips with his mother to the Caribbean, unknowing when the last one will be. Prince William and Harry returned to their apartment at Kennsington Palace, in London, where they use to live with their mother knowing that they’d never return (Kay 116). On August 31, 1997 William would experience an unspeakable emptiness inside his heart, for his mother passed away in a horrible wreck which killed her, her boyfriend, and the driver.
Princess Di left her two sons each 11 million dollars and told her family her wishes for her sons (173). The Spencer family said that they would take care of the two princes but it almost seemed impossible when they never attended any of their invitations to the Spencer family events (Hubbard 60). Diana’s brother pledged that Diana’s family would take care of the 2 boys and help with their upbringing (Kay 173). Prince Charles tried to keep the boys doing things as Princess Di did but William felt out of place and it shows on his face (Kay 173). It was hard for everyone to really take it all in about Prince William’s mothers death.
Prince William has many family members. On his fathers side he has his Grandmother, Elizabeth 2nd and his grandpa Phillip Mountbatten (Fox, Pedigree of Prince William, 1). On His mother’s side, he has his grandma Frances Burke and his grandpa Edward Spencer (1). William has tea with his grandma (the queen) often on Sunday at the Windsor Castle where he can walk over the Thomas River, about 1-2 minutes from the Eton College (Gilmer 1).
Prince William and Harry keep in touch with her mostly by e-mail (1). She sets very high standards for Prince William that must be met in order for him to get the Royal Thrown (3). As you can see, this royal heartthrob is really involved in life. He not only is famous from his royalty but, he is active in sports, attends college, and shares a bond with his mother that no one could ever replace. So now, you can answer the question of who is Prince William.
