Prince William headed back to work on Monday at his new job as an emergency helicopter pilot.
The palace announced the news that the Duke of Cambridge is now an employee of Bond Air Services, where he is currently undergoing mandatory training to be a pilot for East Anglian Air Ambulance.
The husband of pregnant Kate Middleton is expected to begin rescue missions this summer after completing training.
The palace confirmed that Prince William completed and passed his Air Transport Pilot’s License exams in March. The grueling exam encompasses 14 written exams on a wide variety of topics that include Principles of Flight, Flight Planning, Air Law and Navigation.
After years in the military, Prince William is now settling in to what will be his main occupation, although he will continue to perform his royal duties both in the United Kingdom and around the globe, as well as continue with his many charities and patronages.

And lest we forget that he is father to Prince George, 2, and will soon be father to a second little prince or princess, which is due mid-to-late April, although the gender of the baby is still top secret.
