Voices Prince William recently established United for Wildlife, an alliance of seven leading conservation bodies, to try to end poaching

The Duke of Cambridge yesterday called on the world to halt Africa's "poaching epidemic" after he joined Labour leader Ed Miliband in becoming the latest public figures to back The Independent on Sunday's Christmas appeal.

Inside Lines: Prince William target man for World Cup star

Having secured football royalty by paying a king's ransom for Fabio Capello, the Football Association are now seeking to sign the real thing, targeting Prince William to front up the 2018 World Cup bid. We understand initial feelers have already been put out to Buckingham Palace to see if HRH would be willing to do what Seb Coe did for the successful Olympic bid. The FA know they need a big hitter to impress the star-struck Fifa electorate and William, who is president of the FA and supposedly an Aston Villa fan, seems ideal. Fifa's president, Sepp Blatter, has said that he wants an Olympic-style bidding process, and the FA have discussed with Lord Coe the best way of going about it. Coe, who chairs Fifa's ethics committee, is obviously otherwise engaged with 2012 or else he might have been offered the role himself, but he will be used as an adviser. If William cannot oblige,Gary Lineker and David Beckham are other names in the frame, with "special envoy" Richard Caborn, the former sports minister, riding shotgun. But the FA hope that Prince William will be striking up front.

Letter: Countryside for all

Sir: I do not agree with Terence Blacker's assessment of Prince William's demeanour at the Beaufort Hunt on Saturday (Comment, 2 November). I attend two or three hunts each week throughout the cub-hunting and fox- hunting season in order to film their activities, and I can now spot a hunter at twenty paces in any environment. I am afraid that both William and Harry entirely looked the part of the callous hunters to me.

Is William the new Diana?

A17-year-old boy wears a pair of sunglasses. He gets into a car and drives a few yards. He passes his driving test. "It was", said a lorry driver who was lucky enough to observe the latter event, "fantastic to witness the moment". Almost overcome with emotion, he added: "I was so stunned I nearly dropped my sandwiches." Who can blame him? It is not every day that a teenager passes his driving test in this country, and at the very first attempt. Actually it is, but this perfectly ordinary occurrence is transformed by the boy's identity into front-page news.

Why are they famous? Prince William
