Poor Prince Prince William.
He had a good thing going for a while. The British public and the British press loved him with an ardor previously only bestowed on his mother the late Princess Diana.
But now it seems the love affair may be over.
Just last month the softly spoken royal could do no wrong. He was the charitable ambulance pilot one day and doting Dad to his freakishly photogenic children the next.
Yet, within a matter of weeks there has been a seismic shift. This week alone he has been branded lazy, meddling, political and selfish. And a hot head. Jeez. Was it something he said?
There’s a referendum on that issue in June, and royals are meant to keep their lips well and truly zipped on political issues.
Awkward, sure, but not as juicy as Wills apparently slacking off at work. Yep, just one week later, his colleagues at the air ambulance revealed he only logs 20 hours in the air each week, roughly two-thirds of that managed by other employees.
Now we’re talking, people. If only he would publicly splash some money around…
