IS PRINCE WILLIAM BREAKING FREE?
A few weeks ago he and his (half?) brother organised an all-day musical tribute to their mother at Wembley that was screened live across the world. Guess who wasn't there?
Now William is inviting the daughters of Mohammed al-Fayed to a memorial next month to mark the tenth anniversary of the death of Princess Diana and Dodi Fayed.
William appears to me to be more independent than some would like.
Wills asks Fayeds to Di service

PRINCE William has invited Mohammed Fayed’s daughters to Princess Diana’s memorial service next month.
Wills and brother Harry have written to Camilla Fayed, 21, and sister Jasmine, 25, asking them to attend the tenth anniversary event in London on August 31.
It comes despite years of attacks on the royals by the girls’ father — who once claimed Prince Philip “grew up with the Nazis” and said he and Charles “ordered terrorists” to kill Fayed’s son Dodi and Diana in Paris in 1997.
The princes’ private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton invited the pair to the service at the Guard’s Chapel in Wellington Barracks, close to Buckingham Palace.
