Prince William has reminded people of princes of fairy tales, coming to rescue those in need.
The prince co-piloted a four man helicopter crew as the Royal Air Force rescue two missing Russian saliors.
The sailors had been stuck at sea when they shipwrecked in the Irish Sea.
Alexander Yakovenko, Russian ambassador to the U.K., wrote in a letter to Prince William the following:
We know that you took an active part in the rescue and the two seamen were saved thanks to your selfless effort under the bad weather conditions.
Let me express to you and your colleagues my deepest gratitude for saving the lives of the Russian citizens.
Talk about Prince Charming!
Prince William's crew airlifted the rescued sailors to William's air base in Wales and also recovered one body of a dead sailor.
Five sailors are still currently missing from the shipwreck.
