  • Prince William is the elder son of Britain's Prince Charles and of the late Diana Princess of Wales. After his father, he is next in line to the British throne. William is related to more of the people in our archive than you might think. On his father's side, he is a third cousin of the actress Catherine Oxenberg (both of them being great-great-grandchildren of King George I of Greece, 1845–1913), and is a distant cousin of the actresses Rachel Ward, Belinda Stewart-Wilson and Tracy Worcester. On William's mother's side, he is a fourth cousin of T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia), a seventh cousin of Humphrey Bogart, Jane Austen, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, an eighth cousin of Orsen Wells, a fourth cousin of Sir Winston Churchill (whose ancestor changed his name from Spencer to Churchill), a first cousin (nine times removed) of Oliver Cromwell and a thirteenth cousin of President George W. Bush.moreless

    • Prince William: I think it's very important that you make your own decision about what you are. Therefore you're responsible for your actions, so you don't blame other people.

    • Prince William: There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about her.

    • Prince William: The last thing I want to do is be mollycoddled or be wrapped up in cotton wool.

    • Prince William: I'm not an over-dominant person. I don't go around and expect everyone to listen to me the whole time. But I like to be in control of my life because I have so many people around me, I can get pulled in one direction and then the other. If I don't have any say in it, then I end up just losing complete control and I don't like the idea of that. I could actually lose my identity.

    • Prince William: Harry can paint, but I can't. He has our father's talent, while I, on the other hand, am about the biggest idiot on a piece of canvas. I did do a couple of drawings at Eton which were put on display. Teachers thought they were examples of modern art, but in fact I was just trying to paint a house!
