You’d suppose that after nationwide and worldwide headlines had been as soon as once more blaring with the phrases “Work-Shy Will,” Prince William would really get to work… on royal stuff. However no. Prince William bought conveniently pap’d this week laborious at work at his part-time job on the EAAA, the air ambulance gig with which he’s allegedly fairly bored.

The photographer is a paparazzo who’s perhaps/in all probability getting ideas from Poor Jason to William whereas he’s on the job. So William appears to be like like a person of motion! What’s notable is that in the course of the 2015-16 vacation season, William reportedly took a “vacation” from the EAAA for a month or longer. This 12 months, William desires everybody to know that he’s again at work, folks! Identical to a center class bloke! He solely went on vacation for… what? Two weeks this time?
Prince William might have been accused of being work shy however he was seen placing his again into it on Thursday as he returned to his pilot duties following a brief Christmas and New Yr break. The Duke of Cambridge, who was lately criticised for attending fewer public engagements than his father on the similar age, was seen laborious at work as he flew into Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge with a affected person yesterday afternoon.
Final 12 months he took an prolonged three-week festive vacation, however this 12 months he has returned to his duties straight after the New Yr financial institution vacation like most staff. The 34-year-old was seen touchdown at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, then serving to his group to carry the stretcher out of the helicopter and into the again of a ready ambulance. The Duke, who was laborious to recognise as he was dressed down in a black coat, black trousers and glasses, then waited with the pilot for round 45 minutes because the paramedics accompanied the affected person into the hospital. William was seen laughing and joking with the pilot as they checked out one thing on his cell phone.
As I mentioned, it was extra like he had 4 or 5 weeks off for Christmas 2015. That’s what the Solar reported of their scathing expose final 12 months, by which sources described William as being “a bit bored” with the air-ambulance work, and the way he’s hardly ever on shift. And in contrast to a standard, middle-class blokey banker, William’s job doesn’t historically enable for a lot day off in the course of the holidays. The EAAA must be staffed like each different emergency service for the vacations. So let’s not bend over backwards praising William for being again on the job for the primary time in one thing like two weeks.
Oh, and Will and Kate are getting again to royal work actually early this 12 months too – normally, Kate’s “vacation” extends into February or March, however she and Will are doing appearances subsequent week.
