Kate Middleton Reveals Prince William Told Her ‘A Lot About Sandhurst’

Kate Middleton revealed Prince William told her ‘a lot about Sandhurst’ as she spoke with a World War II veteran ahead of Remembrance Day.

In the sweet video shared with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge YouTube Channel, Kate, 39, spoke with 98-year-old veteran Colonel Blum and Cub Scout Emily, 10, and asked them to share their stories.

“Well, I was a Pimlico boy and I was drafted into the army,” Colonel Blum explained. “I was actually called to Aberdeen. Then I was selected for commissioning and went to Sandhurst.’

Kate replied, “It was probably harder than when my husband did it. I’ve heard a lot about Sandhurst,” Colonel Blum added, “It had its moments.”

Prince William joined the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst as an officer cadet after graduating from St Andrews University.

In December 2006 he was commissioned as an army officer and later served with the RAF as a search and rescue helicopter pilot.

The royal, who is second in line to the throne, has previously called his job as a search and rescue pilot his greatest calling in life.

In the documentary Helicopter Rescue which aired in 2013, Flt Lt Wales as he was called in the RAF said: ‘There is no greater feeling than when you have actually done something good and saved someone’s life.

“I don’t think there’s a greater calling in life… to be able to see the face of a son or daughter when you bring their mother or father back from the brink of death — it’s quite powerful.”

Describing the moment a life-and-death mission came in, William said, “As a captain, you try to play out the whole rescue, the transition to the rescue and back again in your mind, picking up any circumstances or problems you can. provided. , and try to fix them on the ground before taking off.”

During the interview shared on YouTube today, Kate asked the veteran what Remembrance means to him and why this time of year is so important.

“I must say I’ve lost a few friends,” he began. ‘I remember one in particular, he was murdered a day or two before the end of the war. That bothered me, I must say, quite a bit.’

“You wrote to their families to say you’re sorry you had to tell them this.”

The royal went on to say: ‘At this time of year it is wonderful to remember not only the time you served, but also your friends and loved ones that you have sadly lost.

“Yes, yes, very much,” Colonel Blum replied.

Colonel Blum showed a selection of old photographs to the Duchess and explained: ‘That’s me as an 18-year-old soldier. Then I got leave to go home and get married. And that is me with my wife who unfortunately passed away about 18 years ago.’

Kate then asked Colonel Blum what his message would be on this Remembrance Day Sunday.

“Unfortunately for me, there are fewer and fewer people around with whom I can share memories,” he explained. “The fact is, when you’re 98 like me, they’re usually gone, and that’s sad.

But I come every Remembrance Day. I used to go to Whitehall, but now I have to do a local parade with the British Legion in Staines where I live.’
