Billy the Fish?... oh, William of Wales, I Get It

So Prince William of Wales was made a Knight yesterday, June 16th, just 5 days before his 26th birthday.

Because, really, what do you get a boy who has everything? He already has a flower named after him.

Per Wikipedia, he is officially styled "His Royal Highness Prince William of Wales", although his parents used to call him "Wombat"... his RAF callsign was "Billy the Fish"....

While there are many things that I admire about the English system of government, the royalty is not something I would ever want to try here in America, unless, of course, we can start making references to George "Wombat" Bush.
