Prince William opened up recently about his reasons for discontinuing his work piloting an ambulance aircraft, and it turns out the job was negatively affecting his mental health.
“[I] worked several times on traumatic jobs involving children,” the prince, 36, revealed at the This Can Happen conference in London on November 20. “You start to take away bits of the job and keep them in your body. And of course, you don’t want to share with your loved ones because you just don’t want to bring that sort of stuff home.”
William piloted his last flight in July 2017.
“The relation between the job and the personal life was what really took me over the edge,” he revealed.
