London Air Ambulances allowed to land on Kensington Palace lawns

The Duke of Cambridge, 37, who was made patron of the London Air Ambulance Charity in March, has offered up a patch of grassland normally used for Royal Family helicopters. The arrangement enables pilots to land and take off from Perks Field, a section of grassland next to the palace, which is the London home and office of Prince William and his wife Kate, 38. __________________________________________________ More on coronavirus: ____________________________________________________ A royal source told the publication: 'Perks Field has been made available to the London Air Ambulance. The palaces are happy to help in these times. The prince is a former search and rescue helicopter pilot and flew as a medic for two years with the East Anglian Air Ambulance until 2017, before stepping down to take on more royal roles on behalf of the Queen. 'That role is even more important now given that Charles has been ill, Harry has walked away with Meghan and Andrew has been effectively barred from public life.
