Prince William has reportedly told his commanding officer that he is leaving his post as a search and rescue pilot with the Royal Air Force. The Duke of Cambridge's decision comes as he and wife Kate Middleton prepare to welcome their first child, due to be born in July.
The Sunday Times reported that Wiliam believes it is time to "move on" and quit his position in the summer. Leaving the job he loves won't have been an easy decision for the Prince, who recently said that there is "no greater feeling" than saving lives.
It has already been announced that William will replace his grandfather Prince Philip as the president of Fields in Trust – a charity dedicated to providing free, outdoor spaces for sport and recreation. The Duke of Edinburgh held the post for 64 years and has now entrusted one of his most cherised patronages to his grandson.
It's the end of an era for the Duke of Cambridge, who made no secret of his professional passion. William – who was known as Flight Lieutenant Wales in the RAF – spoke openly about his job in the BBC documentary, Helicopter Rescue.
