(Newser) – Maybe it's time for him to become a full-time dad? Well, a part-time dad and a part-time royal, at least: Prince William is leaving the British military. Tuesday's shift as an RAF search and rescue pilot was his last, Kensington Palace announced today. After more than seven years in the armed forces, William will now focus on his royal duties and charity work. He, wife Kate, and baby George will move to Kensington Palace within a few weeks, the BBC reports.

and worked in search and rescue. As for whether Kate was really pregnant? What an ignorant comment. You could tell by the weight gain in her face in addition to her body. Why would someone be so ignorant as to make a comment like that? Jeeez, people just can't let anyone else be respected. The articles I have read about Prince William have never just given him credit, it was the team. Haters need to go find a dark room and not bother anyone.
