Examples of William in a Sentence

  1. Catherine Haddon:

    In a way, Charles is caught between two worlds. It's not clear he will enjoy the deference his mother did because of his interventions with governments over the years, so traditional monarchists might not trust him to do the job with the same level of integrity. On the other hand, his personal brand has taken a sufficient hit that being more personal and accessible might not appeal in the same way as William and Kate.

  2. David Attenborough:

    This year Prince William and a global alliance launch the most prestigious environment prize in history: The Earthshot Prize.

  3. President Donald Trump:

    I do make Attorney General William Barr job harder, i do agree with that. I think that's true.

  4. Spun Gold:

    Kate Middleton has worked this act, [Her husband] Prince William is the star and she is the supporting star. Prince Philip has brilliantly walked two paces behind the queen. The queen mother knew you supported the king. Meghan, even though she is a famous actress, [her fiance] is Prince Henry of Wales. She will be Princess Henry of Wales. She’s the support. That’s one of the things people in this documentary have warned. Be wary of becoming the star.

  5. Steve Hewlett:

    Public interest in William and Kate is not going to go away and it's a beast that to some extent has to be fed if it's not to run the risk of provoking negative reaction.
