“Both were very casual in their demeanor.” PHOTOS: Princess Diana’s pregnancy with Prince William Another onlooker noted that William was very nurturing of his horse once the match was over. “He was stroking the horse’s head and talking to him,” the spectator explained. After the match, both princes stuck around for a bit for the presentation of the Jerudong Trophy and to greet representatives from Centrepoint , a U.K. charity that aids homeless young people. (Prince William has been a patron of Centrepoint since 2005.) “Harry posed for a picture with the group of teens, and William followed his brother’s lead,” an eyewitness told Us. “They stayed speaking with people for about 20 minutes before their security guard directed them out the back of the clubhouse and into a waiting vehicle.” Prince William, Duke of Cambridge (R) and Prince Harry take part in The Jerudong Trophy at Cirencester Park Polo Club on July 14, 2013 in Cirencester, England.

He’s one of the most loving people you will ever meet, so he’s the perfect guy to be a dad.” PHOTOS: Prince William and Kate Middleton’s first year of marriage She noted, too, that he has a natural way with young people and is “very committed” to the youths helped by Centrepoint. “He really enjoys listening to them and what they’re all about,” she told Us. “The bottom line is, he’s very interested and very excited about the kids themselves, and he’s very personal with them.” “I am so excited for him — he’s glowing,” she gushed. “He’s glowing about this wonderful time in his life, and I think we should all be glowing with him. He’s one of the nicest people you will ever meet.” PHOTOS: Kate Middleton’s royal pregnancy style The Duke is currently on a short break from his Royal Air Force duties. A palace spokesman told Us he’s not due back for search and rescue duties in North Wales for “a few days,” which means he has a little time to spend with his wife.
Prince William described as ‘perfect guy’ by charity trustee
The error occurred when a county staffer inadvertently typed in the wrong year fiscal 2012 instead of fiscal 2013 in a code that projects the payroll budget, officials said. The countys auditors, the McGladrey firm, have looked into the situation and found no wrongdoing, officials said. The firms final report has not yet been released. Board Chairman Corey A. Stewart (R-At Large) said he cobbled together a solution to fill the shortfall with county staff, including County Executive Melissa S. Peacor. That proposal, which supervisors plan to vote on Aug. 6, includes $2.1 million from the countys revenue stabilization fund, which has approximately $20 million more than the 1 percent the county sets aside to maintain good favor with independent credit agencies, budget officials said. The total amount in the fund this year is $35 million, said county spokesman Jason Grant. Stewarts proposal led Supervisor Peter K. Candland (R-Gainesville) to ask: Why does the county have that kind of money lying around? Other supervisors seemed pleased with the budget solution. Supervisor Frank J. Principi (D-Woodbridge) called it elegant. In a heated and lengthy exchange, Candland and Stewart rekindled the past years budget debates, and each accused the other of a failure to live up to conservative principles. Stewart said the county must set aside funds for contingencies, such as the projected shortfall.
He is one of the most loving people you will ever meet, Danielle Alexandra, a trustee of the charity Centrepoint has revealed. He is the perfect guy to be a dad Prince William made a surprise visit to Centrepoint in May where he was given a photo of his 2011 visit with wife Kate. Photo: Harriet Armstrong Danielle was speaking to the Daily Express as she attended a charity polo match at the weekend, which Prince William played in. He is glowing about this wonderful time in his life, the trustee added. The Prince appeared relaxed as he played in the charity match, while Kate was staying with her parents at their family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire. The father-to-be has had a close relationship with Centrepoint and earlier this year in May, the Prince made a surprise visit to the charitys base in London. During his visit he spent time with the hostels residents and listened to the young peoples stories. Before leaving, the Duke of Cambridge was given a large picture of his 2011 visit with wife Kate, where he took part in a Swag Dance with some of the hostels young people. Prince William has been keen to work with Centrepoint and has been a patron of the organisation since 2005. Diana, Princess of Wales was previously patron of the charity. As an ambassador, William has devoted a lot of time to the cause and has even slept rough on the streets of London to highlight the work they do.
