A Quebec, le prince William s’exprime en francais

Lors d'une cérémonie militaire à l'hôtel de ville de Québec, le futur roi d'Angleterre a remercié les Québécois de leur "patience pour son accent" et souhaité avoir l'occasion de les revoir souvent au cours des années à venir dans un discours prononcé intégralement en français.
 
In the course of a military ceremony at the Quebec Town Hall, the future King of Canada ( the French version uses the common usage and refers to the king of England) delivers a speech in French thanking the Quebecois for being patient about his accent and expressing his wish to come back again in the years to come.

This speech was delivered on 3 July 2011, as part of the Canadian Royal Tour by Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
