Naturally, as he was Prince William of Wales at the time. Now he uses it for work. I think it's why people get confused on his name. He continues to use it for work, although he's no longer Prince William of Wales, since April 2011.

Great video of William talking about his job think he will find it hard to leave when the time comes.

And for those that wondered, apparently he is still using William Wales as his name, not Cambridge.
I do agree that his camaraderie with the team is obvious and real. William strikes me as the type of person who enjoys being involved in a team or group activity be it professional or recreational.

Yeah, I notice he pointed out the lack of team spirit in royal life. That could change if the Cambridge and Wales family got together and conducted some family engagements often.

Oh, I like that idea, Dman. Seems like the only time we see the family together is at very formal events. It would be nice if they did a few less formal group appearances, like some of the European royals. I always like it when we see Will, Kate and Harry together.

Well, getting together for meals or to be photographed is not teamwork. It usually more ritual than anything else.
True "teamwork" is pulling together personalities, strengths, weaknesses and accomplishing something where the net result is greater than the sum of the parts. There is more than a bit of a need to set oneself aside for the good of others in the team.
I agree that the family defers to elders. And that they vaguely support one another. And that they all hold the good of the family as a top priority. But the greatest challenge for any team with a lot of strong willed persons in it, or where there is a given pecking order, is to set that aside. I imagine being the team building consultant for this family, and frankly, I break down into giggles.
Anyway, off topic.

Teamwork is very essential in the work William is doing with EAAA. You not only have to rely on your team but you also have to know exactly what is going on with all members of the team. Each person has their specific job to do and there's times when one has to instinctively know when to step outside of the box and assist a team mate.

Especially in a situation where its a matter of life or death and split second decisions have to be made.

Violence against EAA is rapidly rising. The examples (I think) are all ground calls, but worthy of some attention, in any case. 'No excuse' for attacking ambulance staff after 19% increase in assaults

With all the different indications of William doing more and more working for the firm, the talk of moving back to London and Apt. 1A and enrolling George in a nearby school, I would think that the air ambulance work is drawing to a close. The passing of patronages from HM and the DoE down the line signifies a transition to me also.

We knew it wasn't going to be something that he'd continue doing for many years and the time has come to do what he's been slated to do since he was born pretty much. I think they'll always treasure the time they were able to live peacefully at Anmer with their small children but they also feel they're ready to step up and become more active in the family business.

Donations from businesses to the East Anglian Air Ambulance trebled in a year after the Duke of Cambridge started working for the charity as a pilot.

Accounts show that corporate donations have risen from £55,101 in 2015 to £163,082 in 2016 thanks to what is being described as the Prince William effect.

The increase shows that more companies have wanted to become involved with the charity since the Duke began working at its Cambridge base in July 2015.

This is a very good indication of just why the British royals can and do make a difference. These corporations aren't donating to the EAAA just because William happens to be working as a pilot for them but because William is working for EAAA and is also royal, there is far more publicity about the agency he works for put out there in the mainstream that draws attention to the service and the need to have backers helping out. The more people reached, the more likely people will know more about organizations and services that need support. In a round about way, William used his royal position in a different manner.

Even if it was to be only for a short period of time, William's work with EAAA not only put the future king into a position of being in service to the people but it also drew attention to a service that every citizen may need one day and the importance to secure that the service remains available.

A win-win situation the did a lot of good.

Excellent news for an organization that relies upon donations to provide service to the residents of that part of the UK.

Head of school Donna Lees said: “It was very exciting to meet the crew of the East Anglia Air Ambulance, particularly Prince William.

“He was both charming and very professional.

“They explained their role to us and allowed us to take photographs of the helicopter, which we will be sharing with the children during assembly.”

Aaron Chesham, 19, from Southend, is an aircraft enthusiast and was in the area to snap some pictures of the ambulance landing.

The Southend United steward said: “Unfortunately, I didn’t get to meet Prince William because it was in the school premises.

“But I climbed up the fence to get a picture and there he was.
