PRINCE WILLIAM’s relationship with his step-mother, Camilla, may be tied to a shared love of one important aspect of life, according to royal commentators.
Prince William and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, are both involved with an interest that “means a lot” to the Royal Family, according to royal commentators. The Duchess was in Cornwall with her husband, Prince Charles, to carry out public engagements last week. ITV Royal Rota podcast hosts Chris Ship and Lizzie Robinson discussed how one of the royal’s solo appearances shared a similarity of one of her son-in-law’s favourite jobs.
Ms Robinson told listeners: “There were some lovely pictures of the Duchess at Cornwall Air Ambulance Base in Newquay.
“She got into a helicopter which was called ‘The Duchess of Cornwall’.
“It’s a very good cause, and many people know Prince William was once an air ambulance pilot.
“This is obviously an area that means a lot to the Royal Family all around.”

The Duke of Cambridge trained and then worked as a helicopter pilot with Wales and East Anglian Air Ambulances.
He is thought to have wanted to return to his work to help out at the start of the pandemic.
However, he was unable to because of the necessity to focus on royal responsibilities.
Instead, William spent lockdown with his family in Norfolk, completing virtual engagements.

Charles and Camilla visit Cornwall annually as they are heads of the Duchy.
This year, they began by visiting Tintagel Castle, where the Prince of Wales officially opened Tintagel Footbridge.
In crossing, Charles became the first Duke of Cornwall in 500 years, to enter the castle the way its builders intended.

Camilla was forced to cut their three-day trip slightly short.
This was in order for her to get to Highgrove House in Gloucestershire where she received a new role.
The Duchess was appointed the new Colonel in Chief of The Rifles Regiment.
This was a position handed over from her father-in-law, Prince Philip.
The Duke of Edinburgh completed his half of the ceremony from the Windsor Castle quadrangle, 85 miles away from Highgrove.
