Prince William gives speech at Tusk Trust dinner

Do you think Prince William is upset by the fact that his engagements this week have gotten outshined by not only his brother, Prince Harry, but also his father, Prince Charles? There was no press at all for William’s United for Wildlife meetings in Switzerland on Monday while Harry got lots of glowing press for his appearance at the Chelsea Flower Show, and William’s Women’s Football Team visit got little press while Charles got a ton of press for his visit to Ireland (which I’ll cover later).
