Princess Charlotte treated to helicopter ride as Prince William flies her in style


PRINCESS CHARLOTTE travelled to the Commonwealth Games in style as her father Prince William treated her to a helicopter ride.

The Prince is an experienced pilot and seemed to take advantage of his training to fly his daughter to the Games in Birmingham.

In a video uploaded to YouTube by CobraEmergency, a helicopter can be seen flying over and then landing in a field at Tally Ho training ground centre for West Midlands police, before Prince William exits from the front.

Although Charlotte’s face is not seen, her legs can be seen on the other side of the helicopter when she gets off.

The royals are then driven away in a black Range Rover, where it is thought her mother Kate was waiting for them, reported Hello magazine.

They were escorted on their trip in the car by West Midlands Police.

William previously worked as a helicopter pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance from 2015 to 2017.

He initially trained as a pilot for helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft in the RAF, before specialising in search and rescue in 2009.

After passing his exams in 2010, he conducted 156 operations and qualified as an operational Captain.

England went on to smash their rivals 2-1 at Wembley, ending the country’s 56 year wait for a trophy.

Charlotte has been seen attending the Games without her brothers Prince George, nine, and Prince Louis, four.

George also stole the hearts of many with his birthday portrait shared with the world by his mother Kate last month.

The trio are thought to be enjoying their summer holidays before starting new schools as the family relocate from Kensington Palace to Windsor.
