Prince William Gets A Chopper Job With Kate

He was only supposed to hover at 15ft and so dry the Middletons’ washing, and there is understandable “outrage” that he should have found cause to land.

The Express finds an “aviation analyst” to say: “This is an absolute waste of training hours on the Chinook helicopter that the military are hard-press to afford.”

The Sun puts the cost of the landing at £30,000, and Anorak suggests that next time Wills picks up Kate he lowers a knotted rope so cutting down on the expense.

Says one voice in the Sun: “If the Middletons had been tooled up with AK47s to resist the landing, it might have had training value.”

But Wills is not Prince Eddie, and the Middletons have no need to be afraid, unless, of course, Wills is blinded by a flash of light and finds cause to crash into the family’s kitchen-diner…
