Prince William, Duke of Cambridge
William Arthur Philip Louis was born 21 June 1982 as the oldest son of Charles, Prince of Wales and the late Diana, Princess of Wales. He is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He married Catherine Middleton, now Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, on 29 April 2011.
Prince William was born at St Mary's Hospital in London. His father is Charles, Prince of Wales and his mother was Diana, Princess of Wales. He is the third grandchild of the reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom. His mother Diana tried to shield Prince William and his younger brother, Prince Harry of Wales, from the media.
Prince William began learning at independent schools then Jane Mynors' nursery school and the pre-preparatory Wetherby School, both in London. Following this, he went to Ludgrove School, and, after passing the entrance exams, he went to Eton College, where he learnt geography, biology, and art history at A-Level. At Eton, he took part in many sports including Football, basket ball, and water polo. He then took a year away from education (a 'gap year') before going to the University of St.Andrews. He graduated in 2004, with a degree in geography.
William graduated from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst on 15 December 2006; the graduation parade was attended by the Queen and the Prince of Wales, along with other members of the Royal Family, and William officially received his commission as a lieutenant. With his rank obtained, the Prince, using the name of William Wales, followed his younger brother into the Blues and Royals as a troop commander in an armoured reconnaissance unit, after which he spent four months in training for the post at Bovington Camp, Dorset. He also learned to fly, and is now a RAF (Royal Air Force) Search and Rescue pilot.
On 16 November 2010 it was announced that William and Kate Middleton were to marry. Kate Middleton was a commoner (not royalty). The couple had met at University of St Andrews. Their engagement began on 20 October 2011. The wedding took place on 29 April 2011 in Westminster Abbey, London. That day was made a bank holiday in the UK. After the wedding, the couple plan to continue living on the Isle of Anglesey in North Wales, where Prince William is based as an RAF Search and Rescue pilot. Also, William and Kate became known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The Duke of Cambridge is second in line to the throne. Through his mother's line he is descended from numerous dukes. He is also a descendant of Charles II of England and James II of England. If he becomes King, he will be the first monarch descended from Charles I of England since Queen Anne. He is also related to King Henry IV of England. Sir Winston Churchill is also distantly related to William.
