For many of the world's rulers, sending their offspring to a military academy is a sort of finishing school.
Often they choose Sandhurst, the military college in Surrey where officers have trained since 1812. Graduating alongside Prince William on Friday will be 19 overseas students.
Past graduates include the heads of state of a dozen countries - the Kings of Jordan and Malaysia, the Emir of Qatar, and the Sultans of Brunei and Oman. Winston Churchill attended the military academy, as did singer James Blunt, writer Ian Fleming, actor David Niven, photographer Patrick Lichfield, and legions of businessmen as well as Dodi Al Fayed.
