Royal fans applaud Prince William for his ‘brilliant’ engagement at RAF Coningsby


The Prince of Wales, Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Coningsby, has visited the base to learn about future technological innovations and open a new Boxing Club, the Royal Family stated.

“Whilst in the centre, The Prince also met staff and was shown new radar displays and control systems that have been put in place to improve efficiency and elevate data sharing.”

As the Royal Family released the photos of Prince William visiting the base, chatting with the families and understanding the technology, fans of the Duke immediately cheered for him.

A third user @Prem_perumal said: “Congratulations Princess of Wales, it’s a wonderful thing to meet and encourage people like this and their families.”

The new boxing club opened by Prince William is situated in the heart of the RAF base and creates a central place where personnel can go to exercise.

The club is also an extension of a popular provision of boxing coaching during the pandemic.

User @Dancinginfini1 tweeted: “What a great engagement, love this excited and fun energy!”

The statement released by the Royal Family further added: “Following this, His Royal Highness visited the BAE Systems Typhoon Maintenance Facility (TMF).

“The site, which has been open for over a decade, specialises in longer term maintenance of Typhoon jets and focuses on delivering faster turnaround times to ensure that more planes are readily available for frontline use at any given time.

“At the TMF, The Prince met maintenance staff and heard about the transformative technologies which are currently being explored by the Royal Air Force and BAE Systems.
