Prince William Biography, Wiki

Prince William Arthur Philip Louis Mountbatten-Windsor was born on June 21, 1982 to Prince Charles and Princess Diana, Prince and Princess of Wales. At his birth, he became and is still second in line to the throne of the United Kingdom, after his father.

His early life was spent living in London in Kensington Palace. When he was four and a half, he started nursery school at the Mrs. Maynard Acadamy. Aged eight, he went to Wetherby School, then to a boarding school called Ludgrove, which is about 25 miles from London.

When he was 10, his parents separated and they divorced when he was 14. Aged 13, he started at Eton College, an all boys school near Windsor, in Berkshire, and close to Windsor Castle, the home of his grandmother.

On August 31, 1997 William was woken up with the news that his mother had died in a car-crash in Paris. Since her death, he has been very protective of his younger brother, Harry, now a cadet at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.

Prince William is due to join him in 2006, having graduated from the University of St. Andrews with an Upper Second Class Degree in History of Art. If his father accedes to the throne, he is likely to become His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. If William becomes King, it is not known what title he might take, but it is likely to be William V.

Prince William Career

The Duke of Cambridge is committed to helping children and young people to build their skills, confidence and aspirations. Through his charitable work, His Royal Highness has strived to raise awareness of how serious issues can affect young people, for example, homelessness and bullying.

In 2016, The Duke convened a new industry-led taskforce to develop a shared response to the online bullying of young people.

The Duke also champions the benefits of equipping young people with essential skills and training to enhance both their personal and professional lives, in particular by highlighting youth-engaging programmes, such as those run by Coach Core and Skillforce, that work with the hard-to-reach and make a difference to young people and their surrounding communities.

Having completed seven-and-a-half years of full-time military service, promoting the important role and the welfare of those who are serving or who have served their country in the Armed Forces is a key focus for The Duke’s charitable activities.

Through their programme of official engagements, both The Duke and Prince Harry have shone a light on the ongoing challenges facing service personnel making the transition to civilian life.   

In 2017 The Duke spearheaded the Heads Together mental health campaign with The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, leading a coalition of eight mental health charity partners to change the national conversation on mental health. The campaign aimed to build on existing progress nationwide in tackling stigma, raising awareness, and providing vital help for people with mental health problems. 

The coalition of charities covered a wide range of mental health issues and worked in areas that were in line with The Duke and Duchess and Prince Harry’s interests. They were: the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families; Best Beginnings; CALM – The Campaign Against Living Miserably; Contact (a military mental health coalition); Mind; Place2Be; The Mix; and Young Minds. 

Heads Together was privileged to be the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon Charity of the Year giving the campaign a positive platform to raise funds for the charity partners and to start millions of conversations about mental wellbeing. 

Prince William Wife

After a long relationship with Kate Middleton, the two became engaged and were married at St Paul’s Cathedral in May 2011. It set a record worldwide TV audience, with over 1 billion people tuning in to watch the event.

After the problems faced by the Royal family in previous years, Prince William has helped foster a new positive image for the Royal family.

The public’s support for the monarchy has risen. In fact, his relative popularity has caused people to wish the crown to skip a generation and go straight to William, missing out Prince Charles and his second wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles. However, William has publicly stated this should not happen.
