^Xi Wix c t T , ,

Thank you for your recent letter in which you asked for an interview with The Prince Will.am and a photo opportunity. I am afraid I musl decline vour request Both The Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales want to protect Prince William's privacy as far as is possible whilst he is so young. Whilst thai is not always possible, a decision has been taken that Prince William will not give interviews.

I am sorry to send you this disappointing reply but I hope you understand why il is important that during the short time that Prince William is being educated he is protected as much as possible from the media spotlight i andyHenney

Thank you again for writing.

Sincerely yours.
