“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge join The Queen and the Royal Family as they welcome the world’s Ambassadors and High Commissioners from the UK’s diplomatic community to Buckingham Palace for the annual Diplomatic Reception,” Kensington Palace shared on Instagram.
“I got to drive a train this morning, which I never thought I’d do. Never thought I’d get let loose on that,” William said (via People). “The horn was great, very noisy, so obviously I kept wanting to sound it. I was like a little kid!”

“The Duke of Cambridge absolutely understands the situation concerning privacy and supports the need for Prince Harry to support those closest to him,” a Kensington Palace official told The Telegraph. The statement was issued after a story was published in another tabloid claiming that the pair were in disagreement.
“They don’t issue statements like that without talking to each other, and they talked about the Meghan Markle statement extensively in advance of it being put out,” an insider added to the publication. “The Duke was as alarmed as anyone about what was happening with Meghan. No one wanted to have to put that statement out, including Prince Harry, and there was concern about confirming the relationship. But over the course of one weekend things escalated to the extent that Prince Harry felt he had to act.”
Prince William hits the stage to give a speech at the 2016 International Conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade during his a two day visit to Vietnam on Thursday (November 17) in Hanoi, Vietnam.
“The truth is we are still falling behind,” the 34-year-old Duke of Cambridge told delegates (via People). “A betting man would still bet on extinction. China has already signaled a total ban, the USA has instituted one, and other nations including the United Kingdom are considering it.”
“We know now what previous generations did not – ivory treated as a commodity is the fuel of extinction,” William added. “Ivory is not something to be desired and when removed from an elephant it is not beautiful. So, the question is, why are we still trading it? We need governments to send a clear signal that trading in ivory is abhorrent.” Watch the full speech below. . .
