Prince William pays tribute to Major Mike Sadler, last original member of the SAS

Prince William attended a memorial service at Hereford Cathedral to honour Major Mike Sadler, the last surviving original member of the Special Air Service (SAS), who passed away in January at the age of 103.

Major Sadler, whose remarkable life was depicted in the BBC series “SAS: Rogue Heroes,” based on the book by Ben Macintyre, was celebrated for his extraordinary service. He received several prestigious awards, including the Polar Medal, military medal, and military cross.

The private service, held on Friday, was attended by close friends, family, and colleagues of Major Sadler. Prince William’s presence at the service marked his second public appearance in 24 hours, returning to royal duties after an extended break.

The previous day, Prince William visited Surplus to Supper, a surplus food redistribution charity in Sunbury-on-Thames, where he highlighted efforts to reduce food waste and support those in need. During the engagement, he expressed his commitment to supporting his wife, Princess Kate, through her cancer diagnosis, receiving heartfelt cards of support from volunteers.

Princess Kate, who began a course of preventative chemotherapy last month, has requested privacy as she and her family adjust to her illness. Both Princess Kate and King Charles have been largely absent from public life since January due to health issues, leaving other members of the Royal Family to take on additional responsibilities.
