Prince William Is A Real Life Hero! Rescues Shipwrecked Russians At Sea

Filed under: Royals RoyceInspirationDisney

Disney couldn't have created a better Prince Charming!

He's not only handsome, sweet, and funny. He's a real life hero too!

While serving as a flight lieutenant in the Royal Air Force, Prince William helped rescue some Russian seamen whose cargo vessel sank in the Irish Sea.

He was the co-pilot in a four-man rescue helicopter crew who found the men after responding to a mayday call that went out around 2 am when the vessel's hull cracked.

The team saved two men and have since been out on the hunt for five others who remain missing. The body of one of the crewmembers has already been recovered.

We wish them the best of luck in their rescue mission. What a harrowing experience!

Seriously, what a guy! This just is so commendable!

As the Royal Wedding fast approaches, Prince William and Kate Middleton are continuing to make an effort to ensure that they include all the people important to THEM at the nuptials - including the members of the former's Royal Air Force search and rescue squad!

Flight commander Iain "Spike" Wright reveals:

"It's a great honor. Then I relaxed and thought, 'This is actually going to be quite good fun.' He is a natural. He just seems to be able to cope with everything we throw at him."

And Flight Lt. Thomas "Sticky" Bunn, elaborates:

"First of all, I couldn't believe it. My wife certainly couldn't. When that envelope drops through the door with a Buckingham Palace stamp on it, it's not something you see everyday. He's a really nice guy to have in the squadron."

Lovely! It really sounds as though he's just a completely genuine, pleasant person to be around, and the fact that these co-workers, as well as the locals in Kate's hometown, were all thought of when the invites went out really just reinforces that despite the spectacle, they haven't lost sight of what this special day is truly about: celebrating their love and commitment with those that really matter!

That being said…do U think the Prince has a HIGHlarious little nickname like his Air Force friends? Ha!
