 in Yukon.

Britney Hossack (voiceover):

I talked to Prince Will. 

(Cut to close up of Britney Hossack and key reading ‘Britney Hossack JCR/RJC’)

He asked me what my name was, how long I have been in the Junior Ranger program for – four years.  He asked us what we did.  I said we do a lot of search and rescue – so practising just for that.  We do shooting with the Daisy air rifles.

(Cut to wide shot of Prince William and Junior Ranger Hossack)

 And then, he asked how old I was, and I’m 16.

(Cut to close up of Junior Canadian Ranger Hossack)

I thought it was a definitely a great experience.  I wasn’t expecting their voice to be like that.  I don’t know why I didn’t - wasn’t expecting it to be that accent. 

(Cut to wide shot of Prince William speaking with a group of Junior Canadian Rangers)

It was very cool, they are very nice people. 

Brendon MacKinnon (voiceover):

He asked how long I’ve been in Junior Rangers for. 

(Cut to wide shot of Prince William with Junior Rangers)

(Cut to close up of Junior Ranger Brendon MacKinnon and key reading ‘Brendon MacKinnon JCR/RJC’)

I didn’t think he would want to talk to me, just person to person.  I thought that was quite cool.

(Cut to close up of Ranger Art Birss with key reading ‘Art Birss Ranger’)

Art Birss:

For me this is once in a lifetime.  To do something like this, it was pretty special for me. 

(Cut to wide shot of the Duke and Duchess walking on the tarmac)

All five CRPGs were represented across Canada, which I think is great, because I think everybody needs an opportunity to be able to do something like this.

(Prince William waves)
