Who inspires Prince William? His grandmother

BRITAIN'S Prince William says his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, is his inspiration when it comes to doing good works.

The prince told the BBC the queen "has been very inspiring. I think she has done a fantastic job and I look up to what she does."

William is second in line to the throne. He says he prefers to get out and do things rather than simply show up to cut ribbons.

He says there is "a time and place for being an ornament as such, or shaking hands and being at an engagement and showing support in that way, but I think there's an awful lot more from actually doing stuff."

William spoke to the BBC after a meeting Wednesday of the Princes' Charities Forum, an umbrella organization for groups he and brother Harry support.
