Duty comes first!
The Palace confirmed last week that Duke of Cambridge will be making his first official 2019 visit to the London Air Ambulance on Wednesday, Jan. 9 to celebrate 30 years of its existence. A tweet from Kensington Palace read: “The Duke of Cambridge will visit @LDNairamb on Wednesday 9th January to recognize the work that their first responders carry out delivering life-saving treatment across London.”
The charity tweeted: “We are delighted to be receiving a visit from His Royal Highness, The Duke of Cambridge on the 9th January to mark #30yearssavinglives.”
Unfortunately, the day happens to be his wife, Catherine’s birthday too. The Duchess is turning 37 and she will have to spend the day with just her children.
Kate is being very understanding since she knows how much this visit means to William. The Duke served for nearly five years as a helicopter pilot with the RAF’s Search and Rescue Force – he worked as an air ambulance pilot from 2015-2017 with the East Anglian Air Ambulance. During his visit, William will meet pilots, clinicians and paramedics to hear about their and the challenges they face working in the capital.
The Express reports that Kate and William’s son Prince George will be at school that day, but Kate will be home with her younger children Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Kate’s family, including parents Carole and Michael and siblings James and Pippa, may also join the celebrations. We are sure William will have something special planned for his beautiful wife later when he comes back.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out last week to attend the first Sunday church service of the year at St Mary Magdalene on the Sandringham Estate. They joined The Queen and their friends, many of whom are godparents to the Cambridge children, including Emilia Jardine-Paterson, Laura and James Meade, and Thomas van Straubenzee.
