On Tuesday, Prince William swooped in to help save a pair of hikers via helicopter after the two were reported missing earlier this week while trekking the mountainous north Wales region of Snowdonia
The two had promised to phone a friend with an update during their trip, but when the call never came, authorities were alerted and a search party was dispatched. The pair were eventually found by a mountain rescue team aided by rescue dogs, and William and his helicopter crew arrived to take them to safety.
Over the last six months, Prince William has participated in no fewer than four rescue missions, including saving shipwrecked Russians in the Irish Sea and schoolgirls stranded off the Welsh coast.

In Touch editors wanted to see what the 40-year-old bombshell looked like in the TV costume she last wore on screen when she was 25, and Electra admits she was initially reluctant.
But she explains, "Once I got it on, I felt amazing. It was a million times better than I thought it would be."
And, thanks to a dance-based work-out regime and a diet that's heavy on protein and vegetables, the model-turned-actress, insists she feels healthier than she did 15 years ago.
Electra also reveals she's keen to join the Playboy 40 club and bare all for the men's magazine in her 40s.
She adds, "I love Playboy. They supported me from the beginning. I heard I've had the third-most covers of anyone, after Pamela (Anderson) and Anna Nicole Smith. I'm very proud of that!"
The then and now images of Electra in her Baywatch bathing suit appear in the new issue of In Touch.
Girls Gone Wild goes bankrupt
Founder Joe Francis has put the franchise into bankruptcy to protect it from the long arms of casino mogul Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts. Wynn was none too happy after a wild weekend in 2007 in which Francis allegedly ran up a $2 million debt at Wynn's Las Vegas resort.
The disagreement between the two escalated into a slander suit that Wynn filed -- and won -- against Francis. A judge last April awarded $7.5 million to Wynn and his resort.
Instead of targeting Francis for collection, Wynn's lawyers began looking at the Girls Gone Wild assets. And that's when Francis decided to submit Girls Gone Wild for bankruptcy protection. The bankruptcy filing said that Girls Gone Wild had $16.3 million in debt and less than $50,000 in assets.
But Girls Gone Wild isn't going away. Francis seems to be moving pots of money around and taking advantage of the legal system to avoid payment.
