She is said to hate the nickname ‘Waity Katie’, but Kate Middleton could be waiting a very long time to marry Prince William – for up to seven-and-a-half years to be precise.

The 26-year-old Prince, who wants to become a pilot with the RAF’s Search and Rescue Force, will be asked to commit to six years’ service on top of the 18 months he will spend training from January.

During that additional time, known as the amortisation period, he is expected to put his military duties first, which means any marriage plans are likely to be put on hold.
William must agree to stay in the RAF for so long to justify the £1million cost of his training, which will include flying a £25million Apache helicopter in a series of dummy missions.

A senior source in the RAF said yesterday: ‘William will have to agree to an amortisation like everyone else if he passes his training. Because of the huge cost of the programme, the RAF want to get their money’s worth from anyone they sign up. William will be treated the same as any other officer.

‘There’s no point in the RAF investing in someone who goes through the training and then stays for only a couple of years. Taxpayers would be up in arms if they knew their money was going into training someone who wasn’t going to commit to the RAF for a significant amount of time.’
Last night, a friend of the couple said William’s surprise announcement last month that he wanted to join one of the six search and rescue teams based around Britain was sure to have an effect on his long-term relationship with Kate.

***Kate will be thirty-four years old after seven years and he will be as bald as a coot. She'll wait, mark my words.  If you were her, would you?
