The Duke of Cambridge will be helping to save lives in West Norfolk after signing up to become a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance service.

The former RAF Sea King pilot, who completed 150 search and rescue missions, is due to be flying the air ambulance from the spring.

He will begin training for his Air Transport Pilot’s Licence (Helicopter) in September, which is estimated to take a minimum of five months.

He will have to complete 14 exams and a test flight.

The Duke, who will continue with public engagements on behalf of the Queen, will start off as a co-pilot and is donating his salary to charity.

The Mail On Sunday reported earlier this week that the Duke and his wife are set to make Anmer Hall their main home for the next two years.

The country loving couple are hoping to escape from the limelight in London for a quiet life in the country to bring up Prince George.

The ten bedroom mansion, given to the couple by the Queen, is undergoing a £1.5 million refurbishment.
