Prince William to Become an Air Ambulance Pilot, Will Donate Salary to Charity!

Prince William has been employed by the East Anglian Air Ambulance, Kensington Palace revealed early Thursday morning.

The 32-year-old royal, who is being employed by a civilian company (a first for any royal in direct line for the throne), will be based out of Cambridge and Norwich airports, close to Kate Middleton and Prince George in their country residence.

“In common with all other East Anglian Air Ambulance pilots, The Duke will be formally employed by Bond Air Services,” the Palace said in the statement. “He will draw a salary which he will donate in full to charity.”

“The Duke will start as a co-pilot but, after a period of training, will be qualified to fly as a helicopter commander…This job will be the Duke’s primary occupation but his roster will take into account the duties and responsibilities he will continue to undertake on behalf of The Queen, both in the United Kingdom and overseas. The Duke will also continue his work with his patronages and with the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry,” the statement continued.

Prince William used to be a member of the Royal Air Force Search and Rescue Force, where he participated in over 150 operations.
