Britain’s Prince William ‘settling in’ well to job
Britain’s Prince William is “settling in” well to his new job.
The Duke of Cambridge began his role as a pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance, based at Cambridge International Airport, on Monday (13.07.15) and has already been “fully accepted” by his colleagues.
Air Ambulance spokeswoman Diana Jakubowska said: “He is settling in and got on very well. He is a fully accepted team member.”
The 33-year-old royal flew his first rescue mission on Tuesday (14.07.15) when the service was called to an incident in Garboldisham in Norfolk although no details about the rescue have been released due to “patient confidentiality”.
William – who lives on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk with his wife Duchess Catherine and their two children, 23-month-old Prince George and two-month-old Princess Charlotte – previously revealed he would be donating his salary to charity, although that hasn’t affected his role within the team.
The spokeswoman added: “They do a really important job saving lives. Nobody can stand on ceremony.”
The duke – who previously flew helicopters for the RAF – will reportedly work for four days before having four days off, with additional time off permitted in order for him to conduct his royal duties.
