Duke of Cambridge in two RAF rescues

The Duke of Cambridge at work

It's been a busy week for the new Duke of Cambridge - a royal wedding and TWO rescues as part of his work in the RAF.

Helicopter pilot Prince William helped a 70-year-old walker and four men in their 20s who were airlifted to safety in Snowdonia in Wales.

And more busy times are ahead for the newlyweds. Their first official overseas trip as a married couple kicks off in Canada on 30 June.

After that they'll go to California in America on 8 July.

It will be the first time William has visited the United States in an official capacity and the first time Kate has been to the country.

They have postponed their honeymoon for the time being and the destination is being kept secret.
