Prince Williams was baptised by his six godparents, who include Sir Laurens van der Post, Lord Romsey, Lady Susan Hussey, the Duchess of Westminster, The Honourable Lady Ogilvy, Princess Alexandra and King Constantine II of Greece.
Since early childhood, William wanted to be officer, however he knew that it might not be possible. His mother, Princess Diana, tried to give the ordinary joyful things in life to her royal children, such as visiting Disney Land and similar attractions. Williams studied in various independent schools in England, even attending Eton when tradition was that he should be educated at Gordonstoun, and then and graduated from the University of St Andrews with a BA and then Masters degrees in geography in 2005. In 2006, he enrolled into the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and obtained the rank of lieutenant, subsequently training as a helicopter pilot and transferring to the RAF. At the end of 2013, the Prince ended a period of more than 7.5 years of full time military service. It has been reported that currently the Prince works as a pilot of the East Anglian Air Ambulance and donates his salary to the charity.
Since the age of 21, he has served as a Counsellor of State. He is also active donor to charity, even volunteering at a British Red Cross Centre, The Royal Marsden Hospital. He is also a patron of non-profit organisations Tusk Tusk, which helps to protect elephants, and 100 Women in Hedge Funds, which helps women to fight for equal rights. Prince William and his wife have established The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.
As with most royal family members anywhere in the world, Prince William hardly has a private life. In 2003, he began dating Catherine Middleton, a relationship closely followed by the mass-media. Even though it was reported that the couple split up in 2007, it was then announced in 2010 that they would marry, and finally in 2011 the Prince married his long-term girlfriend in Westminster Abbey, London. In 2013, their son named Prince George of Cambridge was born in the same hospital as his father was. As of April 2015, the couple are expecting the imminent arrival of their second child.
