Prince William Arthur Phillip Louis Windsor is one of the most known people in
the world ? despite the fact that he is only sixteen. This essay contains
general information on Prince William, personal information, Prince Williams's
education and his life story ? obtained from various magazine articles
throughout his life. General information will include who Prince William is,
where he was born, different forms of his name, and what other monarchists he is
related to and how he is related to them. For personal information, Prince

William's physical description, his "likes and dislikes," and his
personality will be discussed. His childhood schools will be mentioned and a
description of Eton College will be included. The public can often obtain as
much information on a famous person's life as they want and because of this
abundance of information, Prince William's life will be detailed along with his
influences in his life like Princess Diana, Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth,

Prince Henry, and Alexandria "Tiggy" Legge-Bourke.
"History-to-History" will include another member of the royal family
born in 1066 named William I "the Conqueror," who was as famous during
his ruling period as much as Prince William is in the 1990s. This essay will
cover the above topics. Prince William of Whales is second in line of
inheritance to the British throne after Prince Charles of Whales, who is first.

He was born June 21, 1982 at 9:03 p.m. weighing seven pounds, ten ounces at

Saint Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London after his mother endured seventeen
hours of labor. When he was born, his father, Prince Charles said "Nearly
seventeen hours is a long time to wait ... Obviously, I am relieved,
delighted.... I think it is marvelous. It is rather a grown-up thing, I have
found. It is rather a shock." His christening occurred at Buckingham Palace
on August 4, 1982. When Prince William was born, Prince Charles gave a press
conference, as the entire country was excited with the birth of another
potential King. A press member asked, "Does the baby have hair?"
"It's blonde, sort of fairish," Prince Charles responded. "Have
you picked a name yet?" Smiling, Charles replied, each word measured:
"We have a few names in mind. You will have to ask my wife about that.

There is an argument about it." Someone in the crowd yelled, "Is he
the most beautiful baby in the world?" The Prince grinned, "He's not
bad." "Is he like his dad?" someone else asked. "No,"
the Prince shot back. "He's lucky not to be." Then someone shouted,
"Give us another one, Charlie!" implying that the country wanted more
than just one possible King. Prince Charles shook his head then said,
"You'll have to ask my wife about that...." He let his words drift for
a moment and then shot back: "Bloody hell, give us a chance!"

Currently, Prince William boards at Eton College, a high profile school with
other students that have just as much wealth and social standing as he has. He
can live at Saint James's Palace at Highgrove, Gloucestershire in Whales or, of
course, he can stay the weekend at Grandmother's home, Buckingham Palace. Prince

William has an extremely long name ? three different versions. The first and
most used is Prince William Arthur Phillip Louis Windsor. The second, which is
used less, is Prince William Arthur Phillip Louis Mountbatten-Windsor. The
reason for this second version's extension is that the royal family once signed
a decree stating that after Queen Elizabeth's grandmother, the royal family
would have the name of Windsor. However, another decree was signed confusing
royal experts, so the name became Mountbatten-Windsor. The Queen has given no
clarification on whether Mountbatten-Windsor or simply Windsor will be used. The
third form, and longest, is a genealogical interpretation which means that he
does not regularly use it, but nonetheless, it is his family's name: Prince

William Arthur Phillip Louis

Schlesweig-Hostein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg-Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. However, his formal
title ? what visitors call him, or what he is to be officially referred to as,
is "His Royal Highness Prince William of Whales. Everyone has nicknames and
so does a Prince: "Wills," "Wombat," "Billy,"
"Billy the Basher," "The Prince of Wails" and "His

Naughtiness" from childhood. More recently, his nicknames have been
"His Royal Sighness" and "His Royal Hotness." Prince William
is related to a line of high profile individuals like the Queen Elizabeth of
