Prince William Quits RAF Search & Rescue, Will Save The Whole World Instead

Newly minted royal dad Prince William announced today that he is leaving the armed forces. A pilot in the Royal Air Force Search and Rescue, the Prince has been stationed on Angelsey, a far-flung Welsh island, since 2010. William will move, along with wife Kate and the wee baby Prince George Alexander Louis, into their official home at London's Kensington Palace in the coming weeks. But what will William do with all his extra time? He won't be playing stay-at-home-father, for sure. Instead, he'll be returning to his royal duties, which includes endangered species conservation efforts and charity work. William's new post will be heading up a collaboration between a number of environmental groups called United for Wildlife. The Prince's charity work will revolve around children, veterans, and current service members.
For those of you who didn't even know that the Prince was a member of the armed forces — his brother, Prince Harry, is better know for his army photo-ops — William has spent the last several years touring dangerous stretches of the mountains in North Wales in an effort to save lives. Last year, he rescued two teenage girls who were stranded off the Welsh coast. And in July, he picked up a mountain climber who'd plunged over 300 feet and fallen unconscious on the banks of Snowdonia. (The Daily Mail)
