This Thursday the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, stepped out to mark 999 days, making it his first royal engagement after the summer break. During this visit, his first since July, the Prince met with emergency service workers and the people they have helped in the past.
Kensington Royal tweeted: “This #999Day we’re saying a huge thank you to everyone working and volunteering in the emergency services and the NHS.
“Today The Duke met some of the incredible people saving lives across the UK, as they were reunited with those that they saved.”
Later on, the Palace shared one more tweet, this time posting an image of five-year-old Lila as she met with ambulance technicians who rescued her.
They tweeted: “Meeting 5-year-old Lila, who was successfully resuscitated by ambulance technician Charlotte Speers, along with fire-fighters Marc Rustage and James Knight, after she collapsed #999Day“
Royal fans were overjoyed by the fact that Prince William has returned to his royal duties, with the comments being filled with nothing but praise, with one fan saying: “future king is back”.
Another person wrote: “Yes, Our Future King is back!”
While another person commented: “Prince William knows first hand what it’s like being a first responder, I love that he’s able to share experiences with all the other brilliant emergency service staff.
“They do such a brilliant job.”
And a third said: “Such an important subject (that he is extra connected because of his job as an RAF search and rescue pilot years ago) to support right on the first engagement since the Duke’s summer break ended.
“It’s really good to see him again.”
Someone else said it was “so good” to see the Duke of Cambridge after “so long”.
Another person said Prince William’s visit is “seriously lifting everyone’s spirits”.
This just goes to show the love and support Prince William gets from royal fans, which no doubt will be helpful once he becomes king in the future.
