Prince William takes helicopter rescue job a few miles from home: Duke of Cambridge's new role will allow him to be a hands-on dad

How many times will it get reported that he's taking this job? All this bs about privacy is giving fuel to fire that they don't live together as man and wife but have separate lives. The press needs to get into what's going on with these two publicly funded but giving very little back instead of wasting time promoting Z listers or less such as Harry's so called ex-gf now aspiring actress.

Men who work full time are hands on dads too. I doubt Will will hang out with George when he's off duty. He has a smokescreen now which allows him to slack off and be a "hands on dad." (LOL).

William is getting slammed in the DM comments. Except by sycophants who accept the hands on dad drivel.

^He sure is getting whacked in the comments; you're right.  And who can blame them?  Haven't we already laughed at this joke?  I seem to recall this being his go-to 'hero' thing many times.  And spare me the 'trapped' routine.  It won't fly.  Pun intended.

He sounds like a huge self pitying brat. William may get the prize as the biggest royal complainer. And using the baby as an excuse is pathetic.

It's such an insult to suggest being trapped in a mansion. Even with visitors on the KP premises, they're not going to bump into any of them when they come and go from the house. This trapped nonsense is an insult and proves agian that Wills is fullof crap when he says he wants to be treated normal.
ITA that he can use this job as a cover not only to slack off but to live seperately from that girl he married. Poor George won't see him and won't recognize him the next time he's dragged out for a pr photo op. He'll have to hold George facing fron so he won't make a fuss that a stranger is holding him. I feel that Waity holds him like that too because he's used to the nanny and would squeem around in her arms if she faced him forward, imo. Actually, he did that often during the Oz tour.

But his mother died when he was young. And he's carrying on her legacy of hard work and compassion...... Wait never mind   tehe

William isn't going anywhere because he can't take his wife anywhere. Kate isn't able to handle state dinners, receptions, or anything else. She is in fact holding him back, but thing is, he chose her, so he's living below his potential by choice. By now he should be doing regular duties, investitures, and of course, he should be spending his time attending every single reception and banquet he can possibly get himself invited to.

Chances are William is a broken man and lost cause. He's still in the mental stage of his early twenties, interestingly the same age that he hooked up with Kate. He was in his early twenties when he brought her officially into his life and he's been at that age mentally since.

Niraj Tanna@ IkonPitures
OFFICIAL: Pr. William to become air ambulance operator. All those millions wasted doing up Apt 1a. Is he REALLY value for money?
Funny how the palace release the info on George's birthday. That's how you Bury news people.

Quote
Prince William is expected to begin a job as an air ambulance helicopter pilot that will allow him to be a hands-on dad.
It is understood William will start the £40,000-a-year job in September after completing a short period of training and will work a four days on, three days off shift pattern.
Kensington Palace officials are expected to confirm within the next few weeks that Prince William has postponed taking on full-time royal duties to work as a helicopter pilot with East Anglian Air Ambulance, based near Anmer Hall.


So what happen to course he took? How long will he keep this job  in 3 years he will quit,and take another gap year cause he needs to find himself

IT was only a matter of time; after all the lawsuits and now the lack of work and the constant rejection, it's only been a matter of time until this was going to happen.

William has never really wanted a royal role. He likes the perks (as we know too well) but does not want what goes with it. Sooner or later something will give. I remember reading somewhere (ages ago) that he and Harry talked about walking away from the RF. William said that he would walk and Harry said that he would go as well.

Fergie and Diana once planned to do a joint runner.

I am just thankful that I was born common. work

well I could see Will walking - but now -I do not see Harry doing that he seems to have come to terms with it - if he can still have a happy marriage - he would not walk he has too much loyalty to his father and grandmother.  IMHO of course

William is just a spoiled entitled brat. He wanted Kate because she's just as spoiled and an enabler of his lazy lifestyle.

I don't think William is a broken man--as long as he can still get all the perks he wants and do little work.

I truly doubt he's going to do much in that ambulance job.

William was showing signs of being spoiled before he met Kate.

Yeah, but Kate frankly was a huge part of nurturing it; lets be honest, if William had really hunkered down and gotten to work on his duties and his military life (as he was showing signs of doing in 2007 when he broke up with her) he would have disregarded her a long time ago. If he had cleared his head and avoided the club scene for a while I am certain that he would have kept himself out of trouble and likely moved on in life. He needed to stop viewing his duties as kissing babies and cutting ribbons. If he had started early in life, he would be a lot further along and likely doing a lot more. So frankly I do think William is stupid for taking her back, but it's not like Kate was encouraging him to clear his head and become more responsible.

What is surprising is that the Queen lets him get away with it. She is in charge and lets her lazy grandson do what he wants. maybe she just gave up after Camilla got into the family (or before since she let Camilla in).

Prince William to join East Anglian Air Ambulance
The Duke of Cambridge is to become an air ambulance pilot next spring, it has been announced.

Kensington Palace said Prince William will join the East Anglian Air Ambulance flying both day and night shifts.

It will become his main job, but his rota will take into account any duties he will continue to undertake on behalf of the Queen.

A spokesman said the duke was "hugely excited and motivated" by the role.

"The duke sees this as a true form of public service, helping people in their most difficult times," he said.

"He regards his work with the RAF search and rescue force as having been an exceptional privilege and the duke wanted to make his own contribution to the outstanding work of the air ambulance service."

The charity's chief executive, Patrick Peal, said: "We're delighted His Highness has decided to fly with us.

"We are confident this will help raise the profile of the charity and other air ambulance charities in the region and across the UK."

Prince William to become air ambulance pilot
Duke of Cambridge plans to join East Anglian air ambulance next spring and will donate his salary to charity

The Duke of Cambridge is deferring taking on royal engagements full-time to return to his love of flying to become an air ambulance pilot.

Kensington Palace said William planned to join the East Anglian air ambulance (EAAA), based at Cambridge airport, next spring. He will begin a civilian pilot course next month in preparation, followed by dedicated 999-response training.

The announcement confirms rumours rife since the duke ended active service as an RAF search and rescue pilot in September last year. The full-time role, for which he will donate his salary to charity, will be fitted in around royal duties.

He will sign an employment contract with a civilian employer (Bond Air Services) and is believed to be the first member of the royal family in direct succession to do so.

The job is convenient for the Cambridges' new country home, Anmer Hall, a Grade II-listed 10-bedroom mansion on the Queen's Sandringham estate, recently privately refurbished to accommodate the duke and duchess and Prince George.

While in London, the couple will reside at their 21-room apartment at Kensington Palace, recently refurbished at a cost of £4.5m to the public purse.

A Kensington Palace spokesman said William, 32, was "very much looking forward to" the next step in his career.

Heir Ambulance: Prince William to take job as 999 helicopter pilot on £40,000-a-year and will give it all to charity

Prince William will next month begin training for a new job as an air ambulance pilot, Kensington Palace formally confirmed today.

The future king will fly emergency helicopters for the East Anglian Air Ambulance for at least two years from next spring following a six month conversion course.

In doing so he will be the first direct heir to the throne to become an ordinary PAYE company employee, it can be revealed.

What does this mean for Kate? She will continue with her small portfolio of work, I am told, & focus on 'being a mother'. No rise in duties

If he does take this on and does a full time role then I think that he will go up in people's estimation. If he does it "half cock" then he will go down in people's estimation.

Air Ambulance is a popular charity in the UK. Anyone may need an Air Ambulance at any time so it's not for a specific group.

Prince William to train as full time air ambulance pilot

Prince William will train as a full-time air ambulance pilot, becoming the first future heir to the throne to sign a contract with a private company, Kensington Palace has announced.

He will start training this September, and by next March will be qualified to fly day and night shifts with East Anglian Air Ambulance flying missions in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire.

The role will be his full-time job and he will fit royal duties and charity work around it.

He, wife Kate and son George will split their time between their Norfolk country home Anmer Hall and their London Kensington Palace residence.

Renovations on the 10-bedroom Anmer Hall on the Queen’s 20,000-acre Sandringham Estate are almost complete, and the family already spend time there.
