Prince William in Falklands

London, 21 March, 2012

The Duchess Catherine must have been literally counting the days until her husband the Duke of Cambridge would be returning home after six long weeks of separation. Less than a year of their marriage, the Duchess had been forced to separate from her loving husband in early February of this year.

Known in the Royal Air Force (RAF) as Flight Lt. Wales, Prince William was one among several pilots on call for search and rescue missions in the extensive archipelago of 704 Falklands Islands.

According to local people there William briefly visited a local hospital there. He even made a trip to remote Sea Lion Island which happens to be a haven for penguins, sea lions and elephant seals.

Meanwhile in Britain, the Duchess had let slip several times that she missed her man and even once candidly admitted in public she had been "missing him terribly." However, she need not brood any longer, as her ‘Prince Charming’ is back on British soil.

Clarence House on Wednesday, March 21, 2012, announced the arrival of Prince William to UK from Falklands, which aides described as a "routine tour." During their time apart, despite the distance of 8000 miles the newlyweds had been keeping in touch through Skype and a spell of emails to one another.

The Duchess was lucky in the interim to have extremely supportive in-laws and royal aides who rallied around admirably to support her in every possible way and not feel Prince William’s absence.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla have gone out of their way to help her transition from a novice to a self-assured, confident royal. This is quite evident in the way the Duchess is handling royal appointments, as if she is to the Manor born.

The Duchess of Cambridge is already proving to be quite a pro, tackling various royal engagements with panache. Last week she accompanied her grandmother-in-law and the Duchess of Cornwall to an engagement at Fortnum & Mason in London. Her second outing was when she joined Queen Elizabeth and Duchess Camilla in Leicester as part of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee tour.

However, that entire demeanor of Duchess Kate was in the public glare and to the world at large. But closer to home in the quiet recesses of her home, the couple's new pup Lupo has been keeping Duchess Kate company, both eagerly looking forward to Prince William’s return, which finally has taken place.

Prince William landed at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire this morning. He will be seeing wife Duchess Kate at Kensington Palace this afternoon. The Duke of Cambridge will now be on leave for a few days after which he will resume his duties as a search and rescue pilot at RAF Valley in Anglesey, Wales.
