Washington, Feb 5: Prince William is reportedly set to train as a journalist after finishing his military duties later this year.
According to sources, the British royal will undertake a journalism internship at a national newspaper in a bid to familiarise himself with the workings of the country's media, before beginning his royal public duties full time. Insiders say that senior authorities at the official royal residence, Clarence House, have organised a series of civilian "work experience" placements for the 26-year-old, to prepare him for the throne.
"I think it would be a good idea for him to find out how the media works. It's something I would like to see him do. He's learned about the armed forces, now he has to learn about the state," Contactmusic quoted a source, as telling British newspaper the Guardian.
William, the second in line to the throne after his dad Prince Charles, graduated from the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in 2006. and is currently training with the RAF to become a pilot before starting a short stint with the Royal Navy.
