Prince William feels fortunate to have Kate

"I know that I am very fortunate. I have the support of my family and friends, I do a job I enjoy—and I have Catherine," said Prince William during a speech to open Darwen Aldridge Community Academy.


Britain’s Prince William paid tribute to Kate Middleton at their last public engagement before they wed.

The future king and his bride-to-be—who will be known as Catherine after they marry at London’s Westminster Abbey on April 29—made a day visit to Lancashire, Northern England, to celebrate the achievements of young people. William admitted he was "very fortunate" to have the brunette beauty by his side.

During a speech to open Darwen Aldridge Community Academy, William—an RAF search and rescue pilot—told the audience: "I know that I am very fortunate. I have the support of my family and friends, I do a job I enjoy—and I have Catherine.

"But I have learnt through working with some truly inspiring charities—none more so than SkillForce—that these things can never be taken for granted."

William and Kate were helping launch a new award scheme named in his honor—the SkillForce Prince’s Award—which will recognize young people’s contributions to their communities.

The couple were later driven to Witton Country Park for a visit as part of William’s role as patron of the Queen Elizabeth II Fields Challenge, where Kate was given the honor of starting a 100-meter race.
