Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have visited RAF Valley, Anglesey, as part of their four-day summer tour of Wales.
They met Prince William who recently qualified as a search and rescue captain at the base.
His fellow crew were scrambled to an emergency minutes before the royal visitors' arrival, but Prince William remained on site to show his father the operations room and a Sea King helicopter.
