Prince William`s time in RAF as chopper pilot ends

Prince William`s stint as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot has ended, British media reported on Wednesday.



London: Prince William`s stint as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot has ended, British media reported on Wednesday.

William`s last shift as an operational captain at RAF Valley on Anglesey was on Tuesday, the BBC reported. The 31-year-old Duke of Cambridge today took part in engagements alongside brother Prince Harry commemorating the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

William has been a search and rescue pilot for the last three years after deciding to take a secondment from the Blues & Royals, a cavalry regiment of the British Army, part of the Household Cavalry.

Since he was not allowed to go on active service due to his position as second in line to the throne the plan of taking a secondment to the RAF was a way of allowing the Duke to lead a relatively normal working life.
While an announcement is yet to be made on what William is planning to do next in terms of a career, there are reports that he could take up some form of administrative position back in the Blues & Royals, where he holds the rank of Captain, like his brother, Prince Harry.
The Duke will be moving back to Kensington Palace where he and his wife Kate and son`s new apartments are also ready for them to move in to, media reports said.
