You've got to be King. After arriving by aeroplane, William was taken to Llandaff Cathedral where he signed the visitors' book, thereby demonstrating that he was left-handed. On 3 June , William was admitted to Royal Berkshire Hospital after being accidentally hit on the side of the forehead by a fellow student wielding a golf club.
He did not lose consciousness, but suffered a depressed fracture of the skull and was operated on at Great Ormond Street Hospital , resulting in a permanent scar. He was reported to have said, "I call it that because it glows sometimes and some people notice it—other times they don't notice it at all".
His mother wanted him and his younger brother Harry to have wider experiences than are usual for royal children. She bought them typical teenage items, such as video games. William, then aged 15, along with his brother who was 12, and father, was staying at Balmoral Castle at the time.
The Prince of Wales waited until his sons woke the following morning to tell them about their mother's death. William began to accompany his parents on official visits at an early age. In , he accompanied his parents on an overseas tour to Australia and New Zealand,  a decision made by the Princess of Wales that was considered to be unconventional; not only was William so young, but both the first and second in line for the throne would be travelling together.
William was educated at independent schools , starting at Jane Mynors' nursery school and the pre-preparatory Wetherby School , both in London. William sat the entrance exam to Eton College and was admitted. He is a boy: After completing his studies at Eton, William took a gap year, during which he took part in British Army training exercises in Belize ,  worked on English dairy farms, visited Africa,  and for ten weeks taught children in southern Chile.

Having decided to follow a military career, in October William attended the four-day Regular Commissions Board at Westbury in Wiltshire, where he underwent selection to judge his suitability to become an army officer. William officially received his commission as a lieutenant at midnight. With his rank obtained, as "Lieutenant Wales" a name based on his father's title, Prince of Wales , he followed his younger brother  into the Blues and Royals as a troop commander in an armoured reconnaissance unit, after which he spent four months in training for the post at Bovington Camp , Dorset.
Though Major-General Sir Sebastian Roberts , General Officer commanding the Household Division , had said William's deployment was possible, the Prince's position as second in line to the throne, and the convention of ministers advising against the person in that position being put into dangerous situations, cast doubts on William's chances of seeing combat.
These doubts increased after Prince Harry's deployment was cancelled in , due to "specific threats". William, instead, went on to training in the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force , obtaining his commission as a sub-lieutenant in the former and flying officer in the latter both broadly equivalent to the rank of lieutenant in the army.
William was then seconded to train with the Royal Navy for two months, from June to August , during which he spent three weeks at the Britannia Royal Naval College , training on units of the surface fleet and submarines, as well as with the Fleet Air Arm and the Royal Marines. Owing to William's future role, a long-term career in the military was considered out of the question; due to his position his desire to see active service was always unlikely to be fulfilled.
William originally joined the military on a short-service commission lasting three years. However, it was announced in September that he would be extending his time in the forces, first by taking on another secondment in , including working at the MOD and non-operational flying with the Army Air Corps.

Upon graduation from university, William began to undertake public duties of his own, as well as obtaining private work experience by interning in land management at Chatsworth House and in banking at HSBC. At the age of 21, Prince William was appointed as a Counsellor of State , and first served in that capacity when the Queen was in Nigeria to attend the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in For his 21st birthday, William accompanied his father on a tour of Wales, visiting the Anglesey Food Fair and opening a centre for the homeless in Newport.

Following his parents' examples, William took interest in various causes from a relatively early age. He also showed a desire to focus on the needy in Africa, sometimes working with his brother's charity, Sentebale. In January , William and his brother volunteered at a British Red Cross aid distribution centre to pack emergency supplies for countries that were affected by the Boxing Day tsunami.
William also worked in the children's unit at The Royal Marsden Hospital for two days of work experience in , as well as helping out in the medical research, catering, and fund raising departments.

As with his father, William's private life became the subject of tabloid speculation, especially around his relationship with Catherine Middleton , who had been one of William's university flatmates and whom William began dating in Middleton attended William's passing-out parade at Sandhurst, which was the first high-profile event that she attended as his guest.
The relationship between them was followed so closely that bookmakers took bets on the possibility of marriage, and the retail chain Woolworths produced memorabilia bearing the likenesses of the couple.
It was reported in April that the couple had split,  though Middleton, in June, attended a party at Lulworth Camp as a guest of Prince William and in July the Concert for Diana , which had been organised by Princes William and Harry. In subsequent months, she accompanied William on holiday and joined the Royal Family on private outings and at public events.

The hereditary titles of Duke of Cambridge , Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus were announced on the morning of his wedding, and formally patented a month later.
As a British prince , William does not use a surname for everyday purposes. For formal and ceremonial purposes, the children of the Prince of Wales use the title of "prince" or "princess" before their Christian name and their father's territorial designation after it. Such territorial designations are discarded by women when they marry and by men if they are given a peerage of their own,  such as when Prince William was given his dukedom.
For the male-line grandchildren of Elizabeth II, however, there is currently some uncertainty over the correct form of family surname to use, or even whether there is a surname. The Queen has stipulated that all her male-line descendants "who do not bear the titular dignity of prince" shall use Mountbatten-Windsor as their family surname although Letters Patent exist stipulating the name Windsor, but with the same caveat.
According to their flight suits as seen in television interviews, Princes William and Harry both used Wales as their surname for military purposes; this continues to be the case for William since his creation as Duke of Cambridge. Prince William is the 1,th member of the register of the Order of the Garter,  and was officially invested by the Queen on 16 June at a service at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.
