Forget those rumors of an impending engagement between Prince William and girlfriend Kate Middleton â€“ for there is simply no time for 26-year-old Prince William to wed this year, according to a palace source.
A palace source said: “He has used up his two weeksâ€™ RAF holiday entitlement for 2009, so thereâ€™s no way there will be a Royal Wedding this year.”
The Prince was criticized for taking time off from his search-and-rescue training at RAF Shawbury in Shropshire to fly to the French Alps with 27-year-old Kate and her family last month.
The source added:”[Prince] Williamâ€™s training schedule is very tight and hardly leaves him any free time. He and Kate manage to see each other at weekends at the house heâ€™s rented near the air base.”
Meanwhile, although Prince Harry has enjoyed a number of private meetings with his on-off girlfriend Chelsy Davy since they split up, they have ruled out a reunion for the time being.
Chelsy has flown off to South Africa for the Easter holidays alone and, as yet, there are no plans for Harry to join her.
A source said: “[Prince] Harry has always joined Chelsy on holiday at this time of the year, but sheâ€™s gone on her own this time round. Sheâ€™s playing hard to get and although she has been seeing Harry, they are taking things slowly. Chelsyâ€™s had a few indiscretions and sheâ€™s quite enjoying not being in
a committed relationship.”
