LONDON - Prince William has started a special 10-week course in agricultural management, commuting by train to the University of Cambridge.

The future king, whose formal title is Duke of Cambridge, travelled Tuesday on the 9:44 a.m. train from London's King Cross station.

He is embarking on a tailored course designed to help him manage the lucrative Duchy of Cornwall estate which he stands to inherit from his father, Prince Charles, who has been an outspoken advocate for organic farming.

The course will include one-on-one teaching and some regular classwork with other students.

It will be organized by the Cambridge Program for Sustainability Leadership with an emphasis on geography, land use, and plant science.
