LONDON – Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, is destined to be king one day. Dedicated to serving his country as his grandmother, the Queen, did for seven decades without a hitch, William is the epitome of a loving husband to Catherine and a devoted father to their three children: George, Charlotte and Louis.
In public, William appears calm, balanced and determined. He is also very keen to speak openly from time to time about saving the environment and protecting endangered species.
William and Catherine have also worked tirelessly to unravel the mystery, and at times, the cruelty that continues to plague sanity. It all started so well with his younger brother Prince Harry, who we know has since spoken openly about his own issues, all for greater communication and on TV – William is much more reserved and shy in this regard .
Privately, however, those close to him say that William, while a loyal servant to the Crown, can defy his calm, family-like public demeanor and is more determined than ever to rule in a manner entirely different from his grandmother and his father. .

So who is Prince William at 40? The simple fact is that he is a man who is uncertain of his future, like all people in the monarchy, because you need the public on your side and the things that have been done to him recently, mainly thanks to his younger brother and errant sister-in-law Meghan – i.e. ‘trapped and can’t escape’ resonates badly with the British public – and the racist commentary prevalent around the world has done little for her reputation this year. Harry in William’s mind has “a lot of accountability”.
However, he has a great stable in his life, Catherine – regular date nights, movie treats and above all the same fun sense of humor have helped William reach this milestone. William told me this about turning 40 “it’s always [a] sense it’s a dread but honestly we should all be looking forward to these birthdays and all birthdays after all what are the options [laughs].”
“…Honestly, we should all look forward to these birthdays and all birthdays…”
Catherine is far more powerful than people realize in William’s life. She was the one who pushed the use of digital media forward, making sure it connected at all levels with people through Zoom, YouTube, etc. It was his idea that they sign with the less formal W&C on social media posts and let’s not forget it was Catherine who stunned the world in that gold dress at the last Bond premiere, as glamorous as any world film star who made William “gasp with delight at Kensington Palace before the premiere” when she appeared so radically different on the world stage.

Catherine also shaped William’s look with this lively style of dress of chinos, sweaters and a less formal look plus a number one fashion fit making his fare more approachable than previous heirs.
The big day will be private, and of course there will be the release of the photos but what William is asking is that people don’t send flower and gift cards but to donate to the less fortunate as we have seen with his resale of the Big Issue on the streets of London. He told me he loves it more than ever because “you get judged in the moment by the people buying the magazine and it was so nice to connect and find some real opinions.”

His kids all have a hand under Catherine’s supervision to bake him a cake, and that’s of course his favourite, the cards and gifts will be handmade and he plans to spend the day quietly but still checking his charities that he really cares about.
Don’t be fooled by the fact that Prince William is a walk in the park, and we’ve seen in the case of his younger brother Prince Harry and his wife who dared to cross him on so many fronts – he won’t have it. and as long as his openness about Markle’s possible unsuitability for royal life was lambasted by his younger brother, he wasn’t wrong at all and that’s really what made the rift between the brothers even more deep.
While Harry misses Catherine’s sage advice on matters in his life, William has openly told close family members that when the time comes, it will be a joint event between him and Catherine reshaping the monarchy together.
“Her children all participate under Catherine’s supervision in making her a cake…”
A sad footnote is that his once close brother Harry will not be here to celebrate with him as Harry has decided that until Meghan receives what he sees as an apology for everything that happened and is well documented in these television interviews, there is a distance. Harry and Meghan left a gift and a card at Frogmore Cottage on their recent return to the UK, but will family photos from Harry’s new life in the US and a vinyl album of rock legends be enough? fix things?

William was very outspoken quite recently when asked what kind of king he envisions himself to be. “I plan to be myself and be open and honest, it’s the only way.” When asked later if he was looking forward to the role, he quietly added that “sure, but that’s if the audience still wants us”. So here we have a king in waiting, but with a very uncertain future, because all successive monarchs like William, more than anyone before in this 21st century, know that it is the public who will decide his fate and that of of Katherine.
Happy birthday, Prince William.
