Prince William Biography

Born: June 21, 1982 / Birthplace: London, England / Best Known As: The elder son of Princess Diana and Prince Charles

Prince William Arthur Philip Louis Windsor is second in line to the British throne, following his father Charles, Prince of Wales. Prince William is the first son of Charles and the late Princess Diana, and the grandson of the current Queen Elizabeth II. Prince William attended Wetherby and Ludgrove schools, followed by Eton College and then the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. His good looks, athletic manner and royal status made him a popular public heartthrob during his teen years. On June 22, 2005 he graduated from St. Andrews, receiving an upper-second class honors degree with a focus in geography. He entered Sandhurst Military Academy in January 2006 and graduated in December of that year; in January 2007 he reported for duty in the Blues and Royals regiment of the Household Cavalry, and has continued military service since then. His younger brother, Prince Harry, graduated from Sandhurst and joined the Household Cavalry before him. Prince William began dating Kate Middleton, a fellow student from St. Andrews, in 2003. They broke up briefly in 2007, but reunited the same year. On November 16, 2010, Buckingham Palace announced that the couple were engaged to be married. The Royal Wedding was held on Friday April 29, 2011 at Westminster Abbey.

**The Queen conferred a Dukedom on Prince William of Wales. His titles are now Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus. Thus Prince William is now His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge and Miss Catherine Middleton is Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.
