Prince William is hot, smart and heir to the British throne. In April 2011, two billion of us watched him marry his princess. Now that the Royal Wedding is over, learn more about what “Wills” is all about on Kidzworld!

Early Life

Born in St. Mary’s Hospital in London, England on June 21, 1982, William is the eldest son of Diana, Princess of Wales and Charles, Prince of Wales. This makes him second in line to the throne after his dad! He has a younger brother, Prince Harry, who was born in 1984.

A Brave Prince

Tragedy hit William’s life in 1997 when he was only 15 years old and his younger brother Harry was 13. His mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, died in a car accident in France. His parents had divorced in 1996. The two young brothers were devastated at the loss of their mother as they were very close.

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
