The Duchess of Cambridge has spoken publicly for the first time about how she felt on edge when Prince William was a pilot based at RAF Valley in Anglesey.
– Duchess of Cambridge
"I loved my time in Anglesey when William was serving with RAF Search and Rescue. I cannot pretend that I didn't feel anxious at times when William was on shift in howling gales, knowing that he was out flying in extremely challenging conditions, but he loved doing it and I always felt incredibly proud of him. I also knew that I was not alone and that there were many supportive Search and Rescue wives on Anglesey and at other bases across the country."
Her comments are part of a foreword to a book by three former RAF wives about what it's like to be a serving pilot's other half.
