The future king of Great Britain masterfully landed a helicopter at the Tully Ho training ground.
Prince William, 40, personally brought his seven-year-old daughter, Princess Charlotte, to Birmingham to accompany her to the Sandwell Aquatics Center for the Commonwealth Games. The Duke of Cambridge chose a helicopter for the trip, which he himself piloted, according to the Daily Mail.
A video posted to the YouTube channel Cobra Emergency shows William landing at the Tully Ho training ground used by the West Midlands Police in a Bell 429 GlobalRanger helicopter. Sharp-eyed royal fans could almost see Charlotte waving out the window.
The Duke of Cambridge made a smooth helicopter landing on the field, after which father and daughter jumped into a black Range Rover to head to the sporting event.
Kate Middleton arrived in Birmingham by train. According to The Times columnist Matthew Syed, the Duchess had a “jolly” chat with his eight-year-old son Ted while riding in first class.
At the competition, the Dukes of Cambridge, along with their daughter, attended swimming competitions and a hockey match. Photos, which captured the facial expressions of the young princess, circled the Web, amusing users.
Prince William's flight with his daughter in a helicopter reminded the British that the Queen had previously expressed extreme concern that her grandson was flying with her family on one side. Her Majesty is afraid that in the event of a plane crash, the British monarchy will face a succession crisis. Until 2013, according to royal protocol, the two heirs to the throne were strictly forbidden to fly together, so that in the event of an accident and the death of one of them, the one who would become the next monarch would remain. But those rules have been relaxed since the birth of William's children, allowing the young family to spend more time together. When Prince George was only nine months old, he and his parents flew to Australia on the same flight.
The Duke of Cambridge is an experienced RAF-trained pilot and often flies helicopters with his family.
