The Prince of Wales becomes the royal patron of the Wales Air Ambulance today, it has been announced.

This afternoon, the Prince and Princess of Wales will visit the headquarters of the charity. It is the first Welsh patronage Prince William has taken on since becoming Prince of Wales. The couple will meet emergency workers and volunteers and learn about recent operations.

The Prince of Wales worked as an air ambulance pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance for several years.

Sue Barnes, Chief Executive of the Wales Air Ambulance Charity, said: “It is an immense honour for our charity to welcome His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales as our Royal Patron. This announcement comes not just a day before St David’s Day but also the day before our charity celebrates its 22nd birthday.

“The Prince has first-hand experience of working in the unique and often challenging air ambulance environment. His work, along with The Princess, in highlighting the need for mental health support for frontline emergency workers is something that is appreciated and wholeheartedly supported by our charity. We look forward to our new relationship with The Prince as our charity continues to support a lifesaving service for the people of Wales.”
