PRINCE William is to become a full-time student studying agricultural management for 10 weeks.

William will learn about the issues facing the rural communities and the farming industry during the course, based at Cambridge University, which begins next week.

His studies will give him a good grounding for his future role running the Duchy of Cornwall, a portfolio of land, property and investments he will inherit from his father the Prince of Wales when Charles becomes king.

Speaking about the course, a Kensington Palace spokesman said William was "very much looking forward to it".

William's studies are a bespoke course run by the Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership (CPSL), an institution within Cambridge University's School of Technology, which has the Prince of Wales as its patron.

The Kensington Palace spokesman said: "The executive education programme of seminars, lectures and meetings will draw on the strengths of academics across the university. It will start in early January and run until mid-March.
