The Prince to the rescue.

Prince William wants to “do his bit” to aid the fight against coronavirus by returning to his position as an air ambulance pilot, The Sun reports.

The second-in-line to the throne spent two years in the service flying medics to emergency areas, however, his royal duties may prevent his return.

A source close to the 37-year-old royal reportedly said he wishes to return to help out on the frontline, according to the Express.

“William has been seriously considering returning as an air ambulance pilot to help in the current pandemic,” the source said.

“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 he could become a senior working royal.

“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.”

William has previously described working with the East Anglian Air Ambulance as a “privilege”.
