The Duke of Cambridge has called working for the East Anglian Air Ambulance a 'huge privilege' as he confirmed he would be leaving his job as an ambulance helicopter pilot.
Prince William will be leaving the service in the summer, to spend more time in London where his children will be school.
He and Kate will also look to take on more official duties for the Queen, as well as more charity work.
In a statement he said: 'It has been a huge privilege to fly with the East Anglian Air Ambulance. Following on from my time in the military, I have had experiences in this job I will carry with me for the rest of my life, and that will add a valuable perspective to my royal work for decades to come.<
'I would like to thank the people of East Anglia for being so supportive of my role and for letting me get on with the job when they have seen me in the community or at our region's hospitals.
