WATCH: Prince William reveals appreciation for public support
Heir-to-the-throne was both sincere and suave last night
Hi Royal Clubbers,
In case you missed it, my fellow Clubber Emily had a front-row seat at Prince William's engagement last night. Did you catch her newsletter where she recapped her evening with William, and explored Prince Harry's whirlwind reunion with King Charles?
William donned his tuxedo to attend a gala dinner hosted by London's Air Ambulance Charity at the swanky OWO hotel in the heart of the city.
Emily was one of the few British media invited to cover the event, and recorded this video of William's arrival. She caught the moment the Prince was asked how grateful he was for the public's support, given his father's cancer diagnosis and his wife Kate's surgery.
"We really appreciate everyone's kind messages. Thank you."
In case you missed it, you can watch the moment below…
William was both sincere and suave as he gave a speech at the event, which was also attended by fellow VIP Tom Cruise.
Despite these worrying times, William showed he's still got his sense of humour as he joked: "I'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you, also, for the kind messages of support for Catherine and for my father, especially in recent days. It means a great deal to us all.
"It's fair to say the past few weeks have had a rather 'medical' focus. So I thought I'd come to an air ambulance function to get away from it all!"
