Prince William, who is known as Lieutentant Wales at work, has spoken openly about his love of his job as a helicopter pilot. "I don’t think there’s any greater calling in life," he has said. "To be able to see a son or daughter’s face when you bring their mother or father back from the edge of death – it’s quite powerful."

He and Kate Middleton have grown fond of Anglesey. "I know that I speak for Catherine when I say that I have never in my life known somewhere as beautiful and as welcoming as Anglesey," he has said. "I know that both of us will miss it terribly."
