Prince William may be trying to enjoy his time as a newlywed with wife Kate Middleton, but he still has a duty to uphold in the Royal Air Force. According to new reports, the Brit aided in a major rescue mission involving a sunken Russian ship on Sunday.

E! Online reports that Prince William co-piloted the helicopter that responded to the SOS alert when the damaged boat started to go under due to harsh weather conditions in the Irish Sea.
