This just in: the skies are less safe than they were the day before because this morning Prince William is officially leaving his Royal Air Force search and rescue duties.
The Prince turned in his formal notice and is turning his royal wings in this summer, a source confirms to Us Weekly.
So you can abort that kamikaze mission you cooked up of piloting a plane that coincidentally "runs out of fuel" just as you're flying over Buckingham Palace because William won't be able there to save you, wrap you up in his parachute, leave Kate Middleton, and then marry you.
A sad day for British skies indeed.
"William is ready to take on new challenges, as a royal and within the armed forces," the insider says.
The source also claims that the prince will be "making an announcement within the next month and leave RAF Valley around the time of the birth" corroborating this intel.
Sounds very likely this is all true. The summer resignation does align with Kate's expected delivery date this July and The Royal Baby Force on the homefront needs all his undivided attention. Ordering your staff to change a baby's diapers at 3 in the morning and polish the child's scepters is a challenge indeed.
