  • Prince William reportedly wants to return to his former job as an air ambulance pilot to help the fight against coronavirus.
  • William and Kate Middleton are currently self-isolating in their country home.

The royal family have been social isolating in their various estates during the coronavirus pandemic, with Prince William and Kate Middleton holed up at their country home. But apparently, William has privately said he wants to return to his former job as an air ambulance pilot to help in the UK’s fight against coronavirus.

According to a source who spoke with 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.”

The source adds, “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 was living at his current home in Norfolk when he was originally an air ambulance pilot, and a source said this could work out in his favor if he wants to return to the job. “There are all sorts of practicalities to overcome such as fitting in on shift patterns. But he’s in the right place now if he wants to do it.”

Guess we’ll see, but either way, it’s nice to hear that he wants to help in such a tangible way.
