Prince William wants to contribute to the fight against coronavirus, as an air ambulance pilot. Prince William worked as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance for 18 months between 2015 and 2017, before stepping down to take on more Royal roles on behalf of the Queen. Together with a team of doctors, the Prince provided assistance to people who suffered in various emergency situations - fires, accidents and other disasters. Until 2013, the prince flew military helicopters and participated in more than 150 search and rescue operations.
The Duke of Cambridge said that during the pandemic he wants to return to the pilot’s work and take doctors to hard-to-reach places. Despite the strong desire of William and his noble message, sources close to Buckingham Palace report that this will not be so easy. Now that Queen Elizabeth II is in isolation outside the city, Prince Charles is recovering from the coronavirus, while Harry is on another continent, William is acting as head of the family.
Earlier this month, William became the patron of the London Air Ambulance Charity, which was established in 1989, and provides rapid emergency care in the capital. William said that now British medicine is experiencing a serious overload, so he wants to do everything possible to stop the peak incidence.
