Prince William is to become a helicopter pilot with East Anglian Air Ambulance, it has been announced.
Gifts given to royals when they were children, including the youngest Prince George, go on display today at Buckingham Palace.
The princes made royal internet history as they appeared for a live question and answer session today.
An aviation consultant for the East Anglia Air Ambulance has said that Prince William will fly a helicopter air ambulance to respond to car crashes and heart attack victims.

His job will be to react to 999 calls as required by the ambulance control. To react to things such as road traffic collisions, cardiac arrests - anything where there is an emergency medical situation where using the helicopter will be in the best interests of the patient.
The chief executive of East Anglia Air Ambulance has said that the Duke of Cambridge brings a wealth of experience to his new role as a helicopter pilot with the organisation.

First of all his professional skills as an extremely good pilot. He has very good track record in the air-sea rescue service and of course he will bring a lot more awareness of the work of our ambulance charities both here and across the UK.
The Royal Family have defended spending a seven-figure sum refurbishing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Kensington Palace apartment.
A royal spokesman said repairs and refurbishments - reported to cost around £4 million, though this figure was not confirmed by the royal household - included "significant amount of internal building" to "return the residence to function as a living space".
William and Kate's Kensington Palace apartment was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and was the home of Princess Margaret and Lord Snowdon. Margaret remained there after their divorce and lived there until her death in 2002.
The living space was last refurbished in 1963.
A royal spokesman said: "This is the Duke and Duchess's one and only official residence. It is here that they plan to stay for many, many years to come."
He said William and Kate "paid privately" for all the internal furnishings, including carpets and curtains.
The cost of renovating the new Kensington Palace home of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is to reach £4 million pounds, according to reports.
The taxpayer will foot the bill for extensive work on the property, including installing a new roof, overhauling the electrics and carrying out significant plumbing works.
A royal spokesman said repairs and refurbishments - reported to cost in the region of £4 million, though this figure was not confirmed by the royal household - would also see a "significant amount of internal building" to "return the residence to function as a living space".
He said William and Kate "paid privately" for all the internal furnishings, including carpets and curtains. They were also at pains to ensure that the specification is not extravagant.

British people rate the Duke of Cambridge more highly than his grandmother the Queen, according to ComRes poll.
The 2,000-plus people survey for the Sunday Mirror and Independent on Sunday found that 68% expressed a "favourable" view of the young royal compared with 63% for his grandmother.
But both royals are significantly more popular than the UK's best-known politicians.
The Prince of Wales lagged well behind his mother and son on 43% - but even the heir to the throne enjoyed a better rating than any of the Westminster figures.
The Duke of Cambridge revealed he is a fan of British rockers Coldplay, during a visit to a school in East Yorkshire today.
When William was asked by pupils at Goole High School what music he liked, the Duke was heard to reply: "I really like Coldplay, Linkin Park."
He turned down an offer by pupils who are part of the school's samba band to play one of the drums, telling them: "I used to play the piano, trumpet and drums when I was your age but I couldn't read music.
"There's only so much you can remember from the top of your head."
