William attended an air ambulance event

Prince William opened up about Kate's birthday while attending an engagement with London's Air Ambulance Charity on Wednesday. During the event, William was given a handmade card from a group of children, prompting the father-of-three to say: "Well done you for remembering, that's very impressive." He added: "I did remember this morning, so I was ok." A member of staff then asked, "Are you doing anything special today?" to which William replied, "That would be telling!" before they all burst into laughter.

The former ambulance pilot impressed spectators when he flew the helicopter from Kensington Palace to the Royal London Hospital, with the charity's chief pilot, Neil Jeffers, saying: "We landed at Kensington Palace, we put him in the right seat, the captain's seat of the aircraft, he has only flown the aircraft a couple of times but was happy to fly it. So he did all the flying from the palace. He's very switched on, he's passionate about it and flies incredibly well for someone who doesn't fly that often."
