Britain’s Prince William back at work
Britain’s Prince William has been spotted refuelling his helicopter days after he was criticised for his working hours.
The 33-year-old royal came under fire when it was revealed he had only worked 12 shifts for the East Anglian Air Ambulance service since the beginning of the year and as he returned to work today (25.02.16), he appeared to have got himself in a bit of a tangle
Meanwhile, it was previously revealed that the Duke of Cambridge – who has two-year-old Prince George and nine-month-old Princess Charlotte with his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge – works just 20 hours a week for the charity.
A royal aide said: “It’s a demanding role involving both day and night shifts. But the Duke relishes the challenge of being a modern working father and husband, combining his royal and charitable duties with this work as an air ambulance pilot.”
And in recent days, the organisation have thanked the general public for being so “wonderful” and letting the Prince get on with his job.
A spokesperson for the EAAA said: “The general public has been wonderful – just letting him get on and accepting he’s someone trying to do a job like anyone else.
“As a charity we’re delighted that the region has supported his work and allowed him to get on with the job – the very important job he’s chosen to do.”
