But while his new piloting responsibilities will mean he’ll be doing both day and night shifts, Wills will be based at Cambridge and Norwich airports – not too far from his home at Anmer Hall on the Queen’s Sandringham Estate, where he’ll reportedly spend his downtime.
The prince’s other home is at Kensington Palace, where he, Kate and George spend most of their time.
Wills does already have plenty of flying experience. He was an RAF Search and Rescue Pilot for the Royal Air Force until last September, before he left operational service to concentrate on his other responsibilities – including his then three-month-old son.
Wills’ new job will leave time for his charity work and royal engagements and we’re sure he’ll make plenty of time to see his one-year-old son, too.
