Prince William started a ten-week residential stint at Cambridge University this morning – where he’ll study a “tailored” agricultural course far from baby Prince George “screaming his head off” at Kensington Palace in London.
The 31-year-old prince is famously a bit of a bimbo and obviously only wangled his place at the elite educational establishment because he’s a royal.
And, of course when he’s King, he will have a whole fleet of advisors to educate him on modern farming practices anyway.
But Prince Harry gave us a hint about the real decision behind Wills opting for a two and a half month live-in course at Cambridge whilst he was on his trek to the South Pole late last year:
“My brother, I think he’s just quite jealous I managed to get away from a screaming child.”
I can’t help but feel a bit sorry for Kate Middleton who is set to celebrate her 32nd birthday this Wednesday alone (as she did last year) because her husband’s off playing at being one of us normals.
Or, did canny Kate persuade him into it to get him out from under her feet at home – leaving her to buy her own birthday gift on her platinum Visa ensuring she gets exactly what her heart desires this year rather than receiving yet another item that once belonged to William’s mother?
We all know having your other half interfering with the baby constantly and making a mess around your home 7 days a week after you’ve been used to having the place to yourself in the day can be quite the opposite of domestic bliss.
I expect the Scrabble board’s been slammed shut in frustration with one or both storming off to the other side of the Palace in a rage more than once over the past few months and with them going to Sydney, Australia for a month as of April a little space is probably a good thing.
Good old supportive wife, Catherine, eh?
