Prince William was all smiles and hugs on his latest solo outing.
This morning, the Prince of Wales, visited the Royal Air Force (RAF) Coningsby, a military base in Lincolnshire, England. While there, he marked the opening of a new boxing club for personnel. Photos show the royal chatting with uniformed members next to a boxing ring.
The prince also toured the hub and learned about its latest technological innovations.
The engagement was especially close to William's heart, as he previously flew for the RAF Search and Rescue Force, and is now the honorary air commandant of RAF Coningsby.
William also toured the Air Traffic Control Centre in the base, where he was briefed on "Project Marshall," a multibillion dollar upgrade for radar displays, ground-to-air radios, voice communication and control systems, and record and replay equipment in the U.K.
The prince then visited BAE Systems Typhoon Maintenance Facility (TMF), where Typhoon jets receive maintenance in order to be set to fly at any time. William spoke candidly with both maintenance staff and other personnel about their efforts to make technological advances to the base.
For the outing, William looked dapper in a classic navy (or Air Force blue) suit, crisp white shirt, navy-and-gold tie, and black dress shoes. Outside the base following the tour, he sweetly greeted families, played with children, and took selfies with fans. At one point, he was even seen laughing while squatting down to embrace a toddler who came to greet him.
