LONDON (AP) — Royal officials say Prince William has finished his tour of duty as a Royal Air Force search-and-rescue helicopter pilot and has left operational service with the British military to focus on royal duties and charity work.

William’s Kensington Palace office said Thursday that the second in line to the British throne completed his final shift earlier this week.

It said he would now focus on royal duties and was “considering a number of options for public service.”

William has spent more than seven years in the military, first in the army and then as a Royal Air Force pilot, stationed in north Wales.

In July his wife Kate gave birth to the couple’s first child, Prince George.
