    No matter what you might say against royalty itself, Prince William and new bride Kate Middleton are undoubtedly nice people – in his capacity as helicopter pilot he was involved in two mountain rescues just this week! Good for him!

    Any company that isn’t understanding the influence of social media will be left behind in the dust!
