It was a proud day for Britain's future king, Prince William, who celebrated his graduation from the Royal Air Force on Friday.

Britain's Chief Air Marshall — who also happens to be William's dad, Prince Charles — presented the 25-year-old and 32 other graduates with their flying "wings" during a 45-minute ceremony at RAF Cranwell in Lincolnshire.

The prince's uncle, Prince Andrew, was in attendance along with his step-mom Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.

William's longtime love, Kate Middleton, was also there, and looked on proudly during the entire ceremony. Middleton also attended William's army college graduation in 2006.

The young prince is following in the footsteps of his father, who also earned his RAF "wings" at the same flight school back in 1971. Prince Andrew is also a pilot, having flown helicopters in the South Atlantic during combat operations in 1982's Falklands War.
