Photo: Prince William and Prince Harry worked a long shift with other service personnel  helping flood-hit U.K. villagers protect their homes, unloading sandbags alongside soldiers in the River Thames village of Datchet.  The princes are not the only royals helping out. Their grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, has sent feed and bedding from the royal farms at Windsor to U.K. farmers whose land has been inundated.
 
 
Princes William and Harry made an unannounced visit to a flood-hit village in Berkshire, to help colleagues from the Armed Forces shore up flood defences, volunteering from 6AM alongside the Household Cavalry on Friday morning in Datchet, Berkshire.

 Kensington Palace said: "The Princes wanted to do their bit to help in a private capacity.
"The most appropriate way was through the Armed Forces relief effort."
