I feel sorry

For the new royal addition

I feel really sorry for the poor little cock, he doesn't know it yet but he's been born into a life sentence, his life is going to be totally mapped out for him.

Just my opinion.


Mersey Report 23 Jul 2013 21:46

there is nothing wrong with William so why the baby


Mersey Report 23 Jul 2013 21:47

Snap Lynda about William


McB Report 23 Jul 2013 21:56

I know i know what i mean is he's going to be expected to go through the best education money can buy, probably told to join the forces, etc etc it's not a life like you & i. he will never be able to do just what he wants when he wants like you & i
probably not explaining myself properly

How do you know he will be loved?


StrayKitten Report 23 Jul 2013 22:09

i know what you mean,

imagine not being able to choose what you want to do, and i know its different to how it was years ago,

you still dont have total freedom do you, and there is things expected of you,

William takes after his mother and thats good enough for me...however he was brought up it was the right way, you can see it when he is with people , the care the interest and the passion for others around him and not even in this country......William and Kate will pass that onto his children.......

Perpetual debt is the fate of his generation.

Not sure what you mean by 'no choice' - he can always abdicate.

Then again, all our lives are in some way moulded by the circumstances of our birth, upbringing, financial restrictions and health etc.

Charles, Ann, Andrew and Edward are totally different in their interests and lifestyles despite being raised in very similar ways.

They aren't clones any more than siblings in most families, individual characteristics still makes a difference.

I wouldn't want to live my life being mainly judged by what the media make up or speculate about me and my loved ones...............would you? :-)

His name went down for Eton the day after they knew he was expected. He might not want to join the military, his uncle Edward didn't like it! What else can a prince do??


A "cousin" of mine married into a royal family (I won't say!!!!!).... her mother is my 2nd cousin.

She's happy, but I wouldn't swap places.

Life in a goldfish bowl.

As a future Heir he will have to serve in all of the 3 services just like his Father and Grandfather and future heirs have done before him , Prince William told him own Mother as a boy he wanted to be a Policeman after having a go on the outriders motorbike :-D

And I feel sorry and angered that they are now camped outside KP ,hounding ,and invading yet again,they have only had one night fgs.!

,,,,,,,,,antics like this will make the couple even more protective of themselves and their son and drive a wedge between good relations between public media and the royals......The media promised they would respect their privacy but seems its been short lived.........

------Times are changing and by the time this tot get to be of military age it probally wont be a done thing if the young new Prince has no desire.....who knows.

Times are changing Prince William is certainly standing his ground so who knows what the future holds for the little one. Though I would not like to be a member of the Royals he could have done worse been born into poverty and crime at least he will never want for anything!
