According to reports, Prince William supposedly wants to do his bit in the ongoing battle against the deadly coronavirus pandemic. He has reportedly shown interest in rejoining the frontline.

One of the few senior royals still working

As per reports, Prince William is one of the few senior royals still engaged in active work, given Prince Harry and his wife’s departure from the royal family and Prince Charles being found positive for coronavirus. Given the fact that he is one of the few senior royals who is still working, Price Williams feels that may hinder him from returning as an air ambulance pilot.

According to reports, Prince William had revealed that he missed his role as an air ambulance pilot during a visit to an NHS health centre. Earlier this month, Prince William became a patron of the  London Air Ambulance Charity. London Ambulance Service boss Garrett Emmerson has reportedly been quoted saying that Prince William would be welcomed back into service at any time.
