Prince Charles praised The Sun’s military awards – the Millies – yesterday as he kicked off this year’s star-studded salute to our boys and girls.
His Royal Highness hosted a tea party at Clarence House for the awards judges, who had the tough task of picking winners from a shortlist of phenomenal nominees voted for by you, our readers.
The Prince — who conceived the Millies idea — hailed the awards, now in their fifth year.
He said: “The Millies is a fantastic occasion which gives us the chance to recognise the work of our Armed Forces in all their many and varied forms and to thank them publicly for all that they do, at home and abroad.
Andy McNab said: “The Millies really show what our guys are getting up to all over the world. They deserve a national pat on the back — and that is exactly what the Millies do.”
