It's not every day you get rescued by a real life prince.
That's why the Ontario woman who broke her leg during a hiking trek in North Wales — only to be attended to by Prince William's RAF search-and-rescue squad — is still reveling in the encounter.
"I thought, 'Where is my lipstick?'" Darlene Burton told CTV News with a laugh as she recalled her initial reaction to seeing the British throne's second-in-line.
Burton and her partner had been hiking along the Anglesey Costal Trail when the Barrie woman lost her footing on a wet rock and slipped.
Her tumble resulted in a broken leg.
"I fell to my knees and I knew right away what had happened. It was just like it happened in slow motion," she said.

Authorities dispatched a helicopter to collect the injured woman.
Aboard that plane was one Duke of Cambridge, who has served as a pilot in the Royal Air Force's Search and Rescue Force since 2010.
The team stabilized Burton and transported her to a hospital in nearby Bangor.
That's when she got a chance to examine her royal rescuer.
"He was just on my side here, I could just look up and I could see him," she said, while noting that she didn't exactly get a chance to engage in a little friendly chitchat.
"It wasn't like a meet or greet or anything… He had his helmet on, so he was basically covered. You knew it was him. I knew it was him," Burton added.
The article notes that Burton remained in the Welsh hospital for two days before she continued on her vacation in Dublin.
It's been a busy month for the RAF's most famous member. Earlier in August, Prince William's team rescued a drowning teen off the Welsh coast after a strong undertow wrenched her away from the shore.
Meanwhile, both women are likely to get tons of mileage from their respective stories on the social circuit.
