  3. You know he gets tired of sitting through boring events and escorting HRM to every ribbon cutting and school opening. I thought it was funny that during William and Kate's wedding he was "indisposed" with a bladder infection. They talked about it in great, indiscreet detail. That'll take the wind out of your sails.
