Prince William ‘wants to return to NHS as an air ambulance pilot’ to help amid coronavirus outbreak

Prince William reportedly wants to do his bit to help the NHS amid the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the nation by returning to be an air ambulance pilot.

The Duke of Cambridge worked as an air ambulance pilot for two years before stepping down from service in 2017.

William, 37, has reportedly expressed an interest in returning to the post, but his role as a senior royal could prevent him from doing so.

A source told the Sun: “William has been seriously considering returning as an air ambulance pilot to help in the current pandemic.

“He knows the whole country is doing its bit and he wants to help. But it's complicated as he was originally grounded from the job so that he could become a senior working royal.

“That role is even more important now given that Charles has been ill, Harry has walked away with Meghan and Andrew has been effectively barred from public life. But William is very keen to do anything he can to help.”

William is currently in Anmer Hall in Norfolk, with wife Kate Middleton, 38, and their children George, six, Charlotte, four, and 21-month-old Louis.

The reports come as it’s been announced that William’s dad, Prince Charles, is out of self-isolation after getting the all clear from a doctor.

The Prince of Wales, 71, is confirmed to have come out of quarantine following his coronavirus diagnosis last week.

A Clarence House spokesman said: ”Having consulted with his doctor, The Prince of Wales is now out of self-isolation.”

However, Charles’ wife Camilla, 72, is still in self-isolation and will remain so for another week, Clarence House confirmed.

Charles spent seven days in self-isolation at his Birkhall home on the Balmoral estate in Scotland, according to government guidelines, after he tested positive for covid-19 last week.

It’s also understood Charles will continue to hold meetings at his office in Birkhall and is taking video conferences while his wife continues to isolate in a separate part of the royal property, which Charles inherited from the Queen Mother when she died in 2002.

Charles’ all clear comes five days after it was confirmed he tested positive for coronavirus.

A statement issued at the time read: "The Prince of Wales has tested positive for Coronavirus.

“He has been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual. The Duchess of Cornwall has also been tested but does not have the virus.

“In accordance with Government and medical advice, the Prince and the Duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland.

“The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing.

“It is not possible to ascertain from whom the Prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks.”
