Prince William Begins New Job As Air Ambulance Pilot

Prince Williams started work with the East Anglian Air Ambulance service on Monday, and even though he's piloted rescue copters before, he's got some nerves.

He clocked in at 7am for a 9 and a half hour shift — see the royals are just like us! He'll be on call with a team to provide aid in emergencies like road traffic collisions, cardiac arrests and other injuries — pretty serious stuff.

He's confident he can balance work and Royal duties — a whole new kind of thriving.

Speaking on his first day on the job, he said he hopes he has the same sense of duty as the Queen.

"At some point there's probably going to be a lot more pressure and responsibility from the other side of my life. At the moment, I'm juggling the two of them, and my own family, and I am enjoying it and like the challenge. Inevitably down the line things will probably become a little bit more difficult for me to do that but while I'm still relatively young I can manage the two jobs as best I can."
