Prince William on his first day as an East Anglian Air Ambulance pilot

The Duke of Cambridge has started working for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

He said: “It’s my first day and I’m feeling the nerves.

From here.

“We’re starting off on a wet Cambridge day, but I’m really looking forward to getting started.

“It’s been a lot of effort and patience in training but we’re here now and I’m looking forward to doing the job.”

William will work a nine-and-a-half hour shift today as part of a four days on, four off rota.

To allow for royal duties, he will complete about two-thirds of the normal shift pattern but he is expected to work a full rota in the early months of the role to allow him to settle in.

Today he will work alongside pilot Captain Dave Kelly, Dr Gemma Mullen and paramedic Tim Daniels.

His first duties included carrying out safety checks and refuelling the aircraft before taking part in a team briefing.
