Taking care of his royal duties, Prince William was in Aldershot, England for a special ceremony on Friday morning (December 6).

The handsome Duke of Cambridge was all gussied up in military garb as he presented medals to the 1st Battalion Irish Guards at Mons Barracks, posing for the press along the way.

Last night (December 5) William and his lovely wife Kate Middleton attended the London premiere of “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom” whereupon it was announced that the beloved South African leader had passed away.

Prince William told reporters, "We were just reminded of what an extraordinary and inspiring man Nelson Mandela was and my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family right now."
