"George said to me this morning, "Where are you going daddy?' and I said, "I'm going to see some pilots who fly fast jets", William said".

At the event, William gave a rousing speech to the troops, saying, "We know this isn't easy for you or your wives, husbands, children and friends back in the United Kingdom but on behalf of everyone at home, we'd like to say a big thank you".
