Prince William Puts His Game Face On To Prep For Parenthood

Fact: William and Catherine, who have been together since their days at University of St. Andrew’s, are smitten kittens.  So, like any couple, their first baby is just making everything feel more like “happily ever after.”

People’s Chief foreign correspondent Simon Perry recounted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s trip to Scotland last week in the magazine’s latest issue, on newsstands today.

When the couple played ping pong against one another in Glasgow April 4th, Mr. Wales pointed out the score to his better half: “Ahem, I think that was 6-2.”

“They’ve always been close but it’s been much more pronounced since she has become pregnant,” royal author Judy Wade said of their relationship.

The future King, who is a search-and-rescue pilot with the Royal Air Force, based in Anglesey, Wales, is reportedly going to give up his RAF duties to commit to royal life full-time.  St. James’s Palace initially stated that the announcement would come at the beginning of the year, but that decision has been pushed back indefinitely.

One announcement indicative of William’s commitment to more royal duties is his recent appointment president of Fields In Trust, a position held by his grandfather, Prince Philip since 1947.

The Daily Mail’s Rebecca English reports that the Duke of Edinburgh, 91, will retire from the association.  It was started by the Queen’s grandfather, King George V in 1925 to protect the number of playing fields in the UK, and is widely known as an initiative very close to the DoE’s heart.

Catherine’s diary, meanwhile, is filling up.  On April 21st she will attend the National Review of Queen’s Scouts at Windsor Castle, and on April 23rd she will be in Wythenshawe to launch a school counselling programme at The Willows Primary School.

On June 13th, Her Royal Highness will christen the Royal Princess cruise ship in Southamption.
