Duchess of Cambridge admits worry whilst William served in Anglesey

The Duchess of Cambridge has spoken publicly for the first time about how she felt on edge when Prince William was a pilot based at RAF Valley in Anglesey.

"I loved my time in Anglesey when William was serving with RAF Search and Rescue. I cannot pretend that I didn't feel anxious at times when William was on shift in howling gales, knowing that he was out flying in extremely challenging conditions, but he loved doing it and I always felt incredibly proud of him. I also knew that I was not alone and that there were many supportive Search and Rescue wives on Anglesey and at other bases across the country."

– Duchess of Cambridge

Her comments are part of a foreword to a book by three former RAF wives about what it's like to be a serving pilot's other half.

A former headteacher on Anglesey had been found guilty of unacceptable professional conduct.

However, an allegation that Ann Hughes was excessive in inviting a police officer to reprimand pupils when they did not pose for a school photograph was not proven.

Ann Hughes was headteacher at Ysgol Goronwy Owen, a village primary school in Benllech.

Mrs Hughes faced eight allegations at a General Teaching Council for Wales hearing in Flintshire.

A headmistress was accused of being "excessive" in her response when pupils were unwilling to pose for a school photograph - by inviting a police officer to reprimand them.

Ann Hughes, who was head of Ysgol Goronwy Owen, a village primary school at Benllech, Anglesey, faces a catalogue of complaints at a hearing of the Professional Conduct Committee of the General Teaching Council for Wales.

The list of accusations against her included that she failed to investigate bullying, shouted excessively, highlighted parents' complaints during assembly potentially identifying pupils, engaged in unnecessary open criticism of children's mistakes, and imposed excessive punishment.

Mrs Hughes failed to create a cooperative working relationship among staff at the school, the GTCW was also told at Ewloe. The hearing is scheduled to last until Friday.

Mrs Hughes was suspended in 2011 and later dismissed.

The school was engulfed in crisis that year when five of the six teachers called in sick on the same day after earlier threatening industrial action following a declaration of no confidence in Mrs Hughes, claiming there was a "climate of fear."
