Prince William Receives RAF Wings, as Kate Looks On
Britain’s Prince William received his RAF wings today, with those closest to him cheering him on. William recently completed a year long course in becoming a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot, something that has been a dream of his for while.
The Prince and brought his father, Prince Charles, and stepmother Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, to the ceremony. Also there was William’s longtime girlfriend, Kate Middleton and her family. Cameras caught the couple chatting and Kate rubbing her boyfriend’s back right before the ceremony began.
The award ceremony, taking place at RAF Shawbury at the Defense Helicopter Flying School, lasted 30 minutes. It was William’s father who gave the wings to him.
Next for the Prince will be another training course in Wales beginning later this month. But first, he will travel to Australia and New Zealand for an official tour starting next week. That tour may determine the future of the British monarchy in the region.
