Prince William Heads Back To School
Today, Kensington Palace announced that the Duke of Cambridge will undertake a ten-week course at Cambridge University to study the UK's rural communities and farming industry, and the issues they face.
"The executive education programme of seminars, lectures and meetings will draw on the strengths of academics across the university. It will start in early January and run until mid-March," the palace said, according to the Daily Express.
"The course has been designed to help provide the Duke with an understanding of contemporary issues affecting agricultural business and rural communities in the United Kingdom."
William will start these customized courses next week, splitting his time between Cambridge and London. HRH holds a degree from St. Andrews University, from which he graduated in 2005.
William, who left the armed forces in September, is using this year as a transitional time to prepare for the future. When Prince Charles accedes to the throne, William will be invested as the Prince of Wales, therefore inheriting the Duchy of Cornwall.
Prince Charles has been instrumental in helping the Duchy to become a lucrative operation, producing organic products and constantly improving the estate for future heirs.
