Prince Edward amused young people and their families with his speech at an award ceremony on the second day of a visit to Regina.
The Queen’s youngest son handed out certificates to 11 recipients of the Duke of Edinburgh International Award, founded by and named after Edward’s father.
To receive the award, young adults participate in a leadership program that includes a wilderness portion called the Adventurous Journey.
Edward joked that if their experience was anything like his as a young man, they probably wondered why they were doing it about halfway through.
Earlier in the day, Edward’s wife, Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, visited the RCMP Heritage Centre.
The couple is also planning to do a walkabout this afternoon.
