Prince William to Become Full-Time Royal After Stepping Down From Ambulance Day Job

Prince William will relinquish his day job when he completes his last shift as an air ambulance pilot this week to focus on royal duties.

The 35-year-old prince announced in January he will leave his role as a pilot with the East Anglia Air Ambulance (EAAA) on Thursday to take up more official roles given up by Queen Elizabeth when she turned 90 last year.

William’s office said he would complete a night shift at Cambridge Airport in central England where he has been based since joining EAAA in 2015.

“Following on from time in the military, I have had experience in this job I will carry with me for the rest of my life,” he said in January.

“That will add a valuable perspective to my royal work for decades to come.”

William served in the British armed forces between 2006 and 2013 and has worked as a search and rescue helicopter pilot.

While quitting his air ambulance job, William will move with wife Kate and children George and Charlotte from their country mansion Anmer Hall on the queen’s Sandringham estate in eastern England to Kensington Palace.

He is the second-in-line to the throne after his father Prince Charles.
