Prince William to Lead Project Setting Aside Thousands of Playing Fields in Tribute to Queen's Diamond Jubilee (Welsh Subtitles)

Prince William has become patron of an ambitious effort to set aside and protect in perpetuity 2,012 playing fields throughout the United Kingdom by 2012, as a personal tribute and in honor of Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee in that year.

The program, which also culminates in the year in which Britain will host the Summer Olympics, will ensure that people across the country, both now and for generations to come, have access to outdoor recreational spaces for sport and physical activity.
