Britain’s Prince William Talks about Life as an Ambulance Pilot

LONDON – The Duke of Cambridge, second in line to the British throne, spoke about the “sad” and “challenging” moments of his job as an air ambulance pilot and how he overcomes such moments.

In an interview for a BBC documentary, William, 34, talked about his work in the East Anglian Air Ambulance, responding to emergencies in southeast England, close to where he lives with his family.

“I think my most challenging one was to do with burns. There’s one job in particular that was really quite nasty and I don’t know how the medical crew dealt with it either because they came to the rescue and did everything they (could),” he said.

Sitting in a helicopter with team captain, James Pusey, William admitted that there were “sad, dark moments,” and that “the best way of dealing with some of the situations is (when) you talk.”

He added talking also helped de-stress and keep the crew together.

The Duke lives with his wife, Catherine, and children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, in a mansion in Norfolk in east England from where he commutes to work every day.

Despite the challenges, William acknowledged, “I look forward to coming here every day, whether it’s at 5:30 a.m. or going to bed at 2 a.m. The shift work is exciting (...) And the fact that I love working in a team.”

In addition to the ambulance work, William also performs his official duties as a Royal family member and his charitable work.

The Duke will set out on an official eight-day trip to Canada with his family over the weekend.
