Royal motherhood

Only loosely sailing related, this seen on Sail-World Cruising:

"If you fancy the idea of yourself at the helm of an America's Cup yacht, then it helps if your name is Prince William.

 

The young prince is visiting New Zealand at the moment, representing his mother Queen Elizabeth II and having a sail at the same time."

Bloody fertile lot those Brits. He is 27 years old while QE 11 is what? 83? Do the math...

How quickly we forget...

Mr Frantic - where 'ya gorn ?

From the Guardian - or the Grauniad as we old timer's affectionately know it

The arrival of the diffident 27-year-old Old Etonian, who might conceivably one day become their monarch, provoked sneers in Australia before he touched down on Tuesday. But by last night he had been transformed from Willy the Wombat into – acccording to the tabloid Herald Sun – a Dinkum Aussie Larrikin. You could go a long way through the Outback to find someone less like a larrikin (which usually translates as a bit of a hoodlum), but that's what the presence of royalty can do for you.

Your Prince and Future King

Sounds like a decent bloke in spite of himself and his silver spoon...

Too bad he's starting to look like his father...

By all accounts, William and his grandma are stellar people. Very down to earth.
Queen Elizabeth II... down to earth?

Please explain.
Well, for starters, she's not above taking a public train. ( http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/article6960529.ece )

She's frequently been known to jump in her truck, and go buy her own candy.

She's the first to remind her offspring that they aren't filmstars.

The Governor General wouldn't do that. (Most) Lieutenant Governors wouldn't do that.

A couple of people in my office have met her, and shared the "down to earth" sentiment. I'll let you know my own thoughts in June, after her swing through Halifax.

We've been more than happy about Will and Dean going for a yacht. We only supplied the PFDs the month before Christmas. Lots of worldwide exposure.
