1.When we describe someone who is unable to see with eyes, we say he/she is blind/sightless/visionless. But which one is offensive or too strong? or is there any other ways of saying it politely?
And is "bookworm" a strong word?

2.Here comes a passage:
Unlike his father, Prince Charles, who had trouble fitting in at school, British Prince William has been popular with classmates.
My qustion is what does "fit in" mean? Why did Prince Charles had trouble fitting in at school?
