Way to keep it classy Daily Mail....😞

Did the article even mention that William is the patron of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight ?

Prince William is also Honorary Air Commandant of Royal Air Force Coningsby. 29 Reserve Squadron is celebrating their 100th anniversary today and William was there to take the royal salute.

Quote:
The airman who took HRH Prince William up into the air in a Chipmunk aircraft has described him as a natural pilot.

The Duke of Cambridge enjoyed panoramic views over Lincolnshire as he flew at 3,000ft in the two-seater vintage RAF plane from RAF Coningsby.

He even took over the controls from Squadron Leader Duncan Mason, Officer Commanding the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

And the Chipmunk was joined in mid-air by a BBMF Spitfire flown by Flight Lieutenant Antony Parkinson.

Climbing out of the cockpit after touch down, the Duke, who is Patron of BBMF, and an air ambulance pilot following his stint with the RAF Search and Rescue Force, said: "It was very good."

Mr Mason said it was an "absolute privilege".

"The great thing is that he is a pilot already and he just naturally eased into it," he said.

"What was apparent is that he is a helicopter pilot, which is very much stick and rudder and you could tell he was very much at ease with flying the aircraft.

Prince William enjoyed a “dirty story” with a Battle of Britain veteran during a visit to Lincolnshire for the campaign’s 75 anniversary.

Former Spitfire flier Ken Wilkinson, one of the pilots famously dubbed the "few" by Winston Churchill, chatted to the Duke of Cambridge before admitting: “I’m under instruction not to tell dirty stories”. Undeterred, William asked him to tell the story he had planned.

Later the former wartime pilot recounted his story. In it, a man called Joe becomes the captain of his local golf club and insists on only being referred to by his new title.

At the end of a celebratory dinner to mark his new position, the man goes home undresses and gets into bed with his wife, announcing himself as “the captain”.

She replies: “You have to be quick – Joe will be home soon.”

Right?! I bet William enjoys a dirty story as much as the next guy! :P That "incident" reminds me of the time when someone cursed in the presence of the Queen and got really embarressed but the Queen said something along the lines of "I have a family full of sailors, I've heard worse" :P

I'm sure she has, and she's got grandkids too, who I'm sure occasionally slip up. I know that when I'm nervous about saying the wrong thing, it comes out anyway, and then I just say something else that's inappropriate in away of frustration, and it turns into a big, embarrassing mess. Good to know Her Majesty has no issues about putting people at ease.

Wasn't it... "I am the Daughter, Wife, Mother and Grandmother of Sailors. Why it's assumed I have never heard a single swear word in my life, I will never understand!!" At least that how it was in one of my many books I have.

He'd just been promoted Captain, but didn't have a chance to let his Wife know about it before getting home. So when he got into bed and announced the Captain was there...

Hope that cleared it up for you. :)

Wish this could be used for teacher workshops here in the States.

Her husband Lieutenant Commander Ian Molyneux, 36, was killed by Able Seaman Ryan Donovan while HMS Astute was docked in Southampton in 2011.

Prince William told the widow of a murdered Naval officer‎ to give her children 'big hugs' from him today after she thanked him for writing a private letter of condolence to them.

‎Gillian Molyneux, whose husband Lt Cdr Ian Molyneux, was shot dead when a Royal Navy junior rating went on the rampage on the nuclear submarine HMS Astute in 2011, revealed how William sent his note of sympathy to her just over a week before his wedding in April 2011 to Kate Middleton.

His letter said that, having lost his mother as a child, he knew something of how her children, particularly her eldest son Jamie, now 18, must be feeling.
