Prince William Responds to Criticism of His Commitment to Royal Duties

LONDON Prince William, second in line to the British throne, responded to the criticism regarding his commitment to royal duties in an interview with the BBC, where he paid tribute to the Queen on the eve of her 90th birthday.

William pointed out in the interview released on Wednesday that he is focusing more on his responsibilities as a father and as an air ambulance pilot.

I take duty very seriously. I take my responsibilities very seriously. But its about finding your own way at the right time and if youre not careful, duty can weigh you down at a very early age, William said.

I think you have got to develop into the duty role, he emphasized.

However, the 33-year-old prince stressed that he would be the first person to accept commitments handed down to him from his grandmother, who has been ruling the United Kingdom for 64 years.

William, father of two-year-old Prince George and one-year-old Princess Charlotte, highlighted the sense of commitment of Queen Elizabeth.

I think the Queens duty and her service, her tolerance, her commitment to others I think thats all been incredibly important to me and its been a real guiding example of just what a good monarch could be, he said.

And its been incredibly insightful for me growing up, watching her leadership in that role, he added.

I think its important to grow into a role with the right characteristics and the right qualities, and I think shes exemplified that in everything shes done, Prince William emphasized.
