Prince William's a Natural Leader, Navy Superior Says

Posted on

He may be the future king of England, but Prince William has no trouble getting his hands dirty as an officer of the British navy.

The 26-year-old heir to the throne, known officially as Sub-Lieutenant William Wales, has already taken part in a multimillion-dollar drug bust and helped coordinate vital rescue exercises in the Caribbean after only a couple of weeks on board the HMS Iron Duke, according to British Press Association.

What’s more, the young officer is proving that he’s got what it takes to be a leader of men, according to his superior officers.

“He understands instinctively the business of command,” the ship’s captain, Commander Mark Newland, says. “Being sent away with a small group to lead and conduct a particular task – that, to him, is second nature.”
