Wills to Olympics

Prince William may be asked to attend the 2000 Sydney Olympics as his first solo official engagement overseas,” according to Britain’s Sunday Express. Australian Prime Minister John Howard is said to be keen on the Prince’s attending the Games, which will be held in September, 2000. “Senior officials in his government have suggested that William could represent the Queen at the opening,” reports the paper. “They believe the Prince, who is 16 now but will be 18 at the time, would not stir up the sort of controversy a more senior member of the Royal Family might cause so soon after Australia’s referendum on the monarchy this November.”
