Prince William has a new job, and he's clearly not in it for the money.

The prince started his new job Monday as an air ambulance pilot for East Anglian Air Ambulance, but he will donate his $62,000 a year salary to charity, according to an AFP report.

William spent three years as a military search-and-rescue helicopter pilot and has since gone through months of exams and training to covert to his newly appointed civilian role. In the new position, he will work a nine and a half hour shift as a part of a rotation where he will work four days on and four days off.

But even with this schedule, William will need to do a bit of juggling to balance his work, royal obligations, and family—but it's a challenge he's seems to embrace.

"Doing a job like this really helps me to be grounded and that's the core of what I'm trying to become," he said in the report.
