Prince William Assumes Air Ambulance Responsibilities Immediately Following Holiday Break

Prince William is out to change the work-allergic image that he and Kate Middleton suffer from. The Duke of Cambridge went right back to work as an air ambulance pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance following the holiday break just like an ordinary bloke.

As you well remember Prince William took an extra three-week vacation following the time spent with Kate Middleton, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and the Royal Family for Christmas 2015 and New Year 2016.

William didn’t take any additional time off this year, not one single extra day, resuming his duties as an air ambulance pilot on Tuesday, January 3 just like everyone else. The prince was photographed with his co-workers landing at Addenbrooke Hospital.

The future King then worked with the emergency team to lift a stretcher out of the helicopter and rush the patient in for much medical treatment. Daily Mail reports that three women walked by William and didn’t recognize the Duke of Cambridge. Dressed in black coat, black trousers and wearing glasses, William stood outside the waiting helicopter with other crew members for about 45 minutes waiting the rest of the team to return with the stretcher and medical supplies.

When the mission was completed, Prince William and the rest of the East Anglian Air Ambulance team flew off, presumably for another emergency transport. Kate Middleton and Prince William were called the laziest Royals of 2016. William carried out only 180 engagements, while the Duchess of Cambridge carried out only 140. It appears as if the Cambridge’s are making every attempt to revamp their image in 2017.

The Duke of Cambridge is scheduled to visit Centrepoint UK, a hostel for homeless youth, on Tuesday, January 10. The next day Prince William and Kate Middleton will visit Child Bereavement UK Centre and meet with staff and volunteers and those that have used the centre’s services.

Kate Middleton is also scheduled to visit the Anna Freud Early Years Parenting Unit on Wednesday, January 11. Kate is a patron of the Anna Freud Centre, and the EYPU is an outreach which provides support to families with children five years of age and younger to ensure that they receive proper preventative mental health care.

It’s about time the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have stopped lounging around on luxurious ski holidays and private vacations in the South of France. Once the couple makes the move from Anmer Hall to Kensington Palace the Cambridge’s will have even less excuses to shy away from their Royal obligations.
