A diligent philanthropist, a committed eco-activist, a loving family man, a perfect gentleman and the future king — what more reasons does one need to love Prince William! Being a member of the British royal family and the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, will eventually succeed his father Prince Charles as King of England. His personality and work have already won him affection and popularity among the people.
Prince William was born on 21 June 1982 in London. He received his early education at Wetherby School in London and later attended Ludgrove School in Wokingham, Berkshire. Having been exposed to charitable activities early in his life by his mother Diana, Princess of Wales, Prince William volunteered to teach children in Chile during his gap year. He also worked at a British dairy farm and visited Belize and countries in Africa. He graduated from the University of St Andrews in Scotland.
Following his graduation, Prince William trained at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, served for over seven years, and carried out over 150 helicopter search and rescue operations before the denouement of his military service in 2013. Later, he served as an air ambulance pilot until 2017. Speaking to the BBC, the Prince justified his choice: “All I want, at the end of the day is to feel like I have made a difference and a contribution.’’
