Prince William is contemplating joining the East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) as a pilot, it has been reported.

Last night, a palace spokeswoman said he was considering a “number of options for public service” a year after stepping down from his role as an RAF search and rescue pilot. She said no decision had been made yet. There is speculation that he could join the EAAA because of its close proximity to his country home near Sandringham.

A spokeswoman for the EAAA said she was not aware of the Duke of Cambridge’s interest in joining the organisation. But she added that if he did become part of the service, it would be “amazing for us and the people of East Anglia”.

  • But of the other RAF airsea rescue crews that got dumped when it was sold off to an American company? I wonder if any of them got offered the job...

  • I take it samphirelover that if he just walks in to the job, no interview, nothing you wont want him coming to you in your or your families hour of need. He's got a proven track record of fly search and rescue helicopters, that's all that counts. Most pilot's come from a privileged background and they get the job from the experience they have gained over the many years of flying. Stop being so cynical - what a great thing for the people of Norfolk
