LONDON -- Prince William, second in line to the throne and father of the world's most celebrated newborn, is giving up active duty in the British military for a life devoted to charity and public service, the royal family announced Thursday. The prince, 31, is completing a seven-and-a-half-year military tour, most of it spent as a rescue pilot based in Wales. Leaving the armed forces will allow William to become, in effect, a full-time royal representative dedicated to shaking hands, cutting ribbons, promoting worthy causes and generally preparing for the day he will be king.

Kate Middleton, Prince William and St. James's Palace are revealing quite a bit about their royal baby preparations. It's a welcome change from the secrecy normally cloaking the royals. The palace has been much more forthcoming with some details ever since the announcement of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's engagement in November 2010. Royal watchers have said this is quite a departure for the family, which was once viewed as aloof and cold after the death of William's beloved mother, Princess Diana.

Prince William is bidding adieu to the Royal Air Force and active military duty. The Duke of Cambridge, 31, second in line to the British throne and father of Prince George, will conclude active duty to focus on his royal responsibilities instead. What royal responsibilities, you say? Mostly those that involve public service, giving speeches, promoting worthy causes, being a national icon, preparing to be king and all things aristocratic that don't always make as much sense to residents of a country with a history of anti-royalist dissent, according to World Now.
