The Simple Life

Posing with a lamb on his father's 1,080-acre Gloucestershire spread on May 29, Will, 21, told reporters he might join the military after his college graduation next summer. "A career in the armed services would be the best thing at the moment" said the prince. "It would be lovely to recognize all the hard work that the armed forces are doing."

"People will get the wrong idea if I keep, hugging the sheep too long," quipped the prince as he gamely checked a 187-lb. animal for a disease called foot rot.

"It is going to be part of his professional life," said an aide to Prince Charles of the farm William will inherit.

"I get a lot of pleasure out of it," said Will of life on the farm. "It's really good fun."
