|William Admits 'Tantalising' the Media
- Interview ahead of Prince's 21st birthday foreshadows likely press blitz
PRINCE WILLIAM has made a pre-emptive strike on the world's media ahead of his 21st birthday next month.
A long standing unofficial agreement has seen the press and paparazzi agree to spike William stories until he reaches the traditional coming-of-age mark. It is felt with the gloves off the media, the young prince could be in for a serious going-over.
It is in that context that William, currently at St Andrews University in Scotland, agreed to be interviewed by the Press Association. "The media have been very good," William said. "considering how tantalising it is [for them] having me up here."
William revealed that he is currently teaching himself Swahili and that he wanted to leave university when he first started his art history course. On life after St Andrews - William still has two years of the course to go - the Prince was said he was unsure, though the role of British monarch would appear to be the obvious career path.
