Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, are back at work after the funeral of Prince Philip. In their first royal engagement since the sad event, the couple visited the air cadet squadron with close ties to the Duke of Edinburgh.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited the East London training facility to speak with the young pilots who are getting their vital training with the Air Cadets Squadron. Philip was the Air Commodore-in-Chief of this organization for 63 years and upon his retirement in 2017, he turned over this role to Middleton as the Honorary Air Commandant.

According to People, Prince William and his wife stepped out to do their royal duties with the expressed permission of Queen Elizabeth, who was celebrating her 95th birthday. The royal family was not expecting to have a grand celebration for the queen since her husband was buried four days before her birthday on April 21.

William and Middleton were both in black during their royal engagement as the family is still mourning the loss of their patriarch. But Middleton could not resist trying one of the air cadets' flight simulators while her husband volunteered to take her purse as he watched her try to navigate the machine.

It wasn't a completely somber visit as the squadrons paid a fitting tribute to the couple's grandfather, which made William and Middleton smile.

Meanwhile, William has been vocal about his displeasure over the planned European Super League amid reports of a breakaway group from six football clubs. The Duke of Cambridge, who is the president of the Football Association, could not help but post a tweet to say that he is committed to working and making changes to English football to avoid instances like this latest controversy.

William said that he's glad that football fans, just like him, have a united voice and were "heard and listened to" as the planned new league's original founders told Sky News that they will no longer push through with its establishment. The duke vowed to "protect the entire football community" until the grassroots and promote fairness in this competitive sport.

The royal believes that a breakaway group was going to damage their beloved game. Even Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he will ban groups who will join the league if it were to continue.

As Prince William has his focus on football, Middleton, on other hand, has been with her children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who have resumed in-person classes in London. The duchess was seen with her two older childrenshopping for stationery supplies for school. She will also likely prepare a small celebration among her family unit since her youngest Prince Louis will turn three years old on April 23.
