“Prince William prepares to become our Duke.


The Duke of Cambridge is to spend 10 weeks at Cambridge University studying agricultural management in the New Year, Kensington Palace has announced.

He will attend seminars and lectures with other students as part of a "bespoke" course which will help him prepare for his future role in charge of the Duchy of Cornwall, which he will inherit when his father becomes king.

The Duke will stay in Cambridge during the course, but will not take any exams and will not graduate. He will become a member of the University, following in the footsteps of the Prince of Wales, who studied history at Trinity College, though the Duke will not be attached to any one college.

It will mean spending week nights away from his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, and their son Prince George, though they are expected to be reunited at weekends.

The course, which starts next week, is being paid for "privately", Palace aides said, meaning the Duke or the Prince of Wales will be footing the bill, which is likely to top £10,000.”
