Prince William is joining the East Anglian Air Ambulance as a helicopter pilot in spring next year.

The Duke of Cambridge finished his tour as an RAF Search and Rescue pilot in September after more than seven-and-a-half years of full-time military service.

Andrew Egerton Smith MBE, Chairman of EAAA, said: “Having the Duke of Cambridge as one of our pilots is marvellous news as he brings much experience to the charity after his successful career as a search and rescue pilot.

“We have an outstanding track record of attending people in their hour of need which is recognised and generously supported by our local communities”
