Our very own Prince Farming has arrived. ALEX DAVIS reports.
Prince William was pictured arriving at St John’s this morning on the first day of his ten week agricultural management course.
Wearing a navy blue suit, The Duke was greeted by vice chancellor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, master of St John’s Prof Christopher Dobson and Polly Courtice, director of the Programme for Sustainability Leadership.
He took a tour of St John’s College, before meeting with four professors from the land economy, geography and plant sciences departments.
Sharing a standard-class carriage with the Duke, fellow passenger Max Hardy commented: “It was certainly a surprise, but he was just like any other passenger.
“It was all very-low key, to be honest. He just seemed to be getting on with his day.”
As expected, a sizeable crowd gathered to see the prince stroll through the college’s historic quad.
Christine Chen, 21, a tourist from Hong Kong, said: “In Hong Kong we all watched his wedding – hopefully I will be able to see him myself so I can tell everyone back home.”
The course, which will end in March, has been designed to help him manage the Duchy of Cornwall estate upon inheritance.
Despite some serious but unjustified threats from The Express, The Tab is intending to continue with #WheresWilly this term. We must stress that we are not encouraging any harassment of Wills and, to soothe The Express’ worries, we will not be offering any Tab t-shirts as prizes.
