A prince among private bankers?

If a UK tabloid is to be believed, Coutts is about to offer Prince William (pictured, left) more than just a bank account. William ? second in line to the throne ? is considering a career with Coutts when he graduates from St Andrews University, according to the Sunday Mirror.

The paper says he will need the experience when he inherits the money-spinning Duchy of Cornwall when his father, Prince Charles, becomes king. The article quotes a royal aide as saying: "[William] realizes that the Duchy of Cornwall isn't just about selling shortbread biscuits." (Farms in the Duchy of Cornwall provide oatmeal to make Duchy Original biscuits.)

A Palace spokeswoman is sceptical about the report. "Everything is a possibility," she says, "but I would think [Prince William's joining Coutts] was pure speculation. He's still got another year and a half until he graduates."

Private bankers Coutts would not comment.
