The future heir to the throne has announced today; "yes he is definitely going to give up drinking, But…" In keeping with Royal traditions and their penchant for blood sports, he wouldn't like to upset his Granddad and has vowed to continue clubbing.
He spoke Jenny Bonds, the new In Seine News Royal Correspondent after staggering from a Mayfair Gentleman's Club at 4am on what was going to be his last ever drinking session. He said:
"You haven't met grandfather when he's in a mood have you? He gets in a frightful funk and kicks the corgis!
"I am going to learn to fly in the next four months and when I get to pilot the chopper I'm going to take the 'old fellow' out to the Faro Islands in it and were going to club us a few seals - they should be fat enough in 4 months. We're going to have to get lots of Grandma's (corgi) pooper-scoopers to make sure I don't get blood on me chopper."
The Duke of Edinburgh is reputed to have said: "I wish William was my son."
