The 33-year-old royal was reportedly piloting the rescue helicopter from the East Anglian Air Ambulance when it was called to the scene of the accident in Bedfordshire on Tuesday (29.09.15).

According to the BBC, the young girl taken to hospital by helicopter after being "seriously injured when a car ended up on its roof".

William has been kept busy since starting his job with the air ambulance in July, completing four rescue missions in his first week alone.

William made four potentially life-saving trips during the seven days; firstly to Garboldisham in Norfolk and then Felixstowe in Suffolk, where he rescued a man suffering a heart attack. Later in the week, he attended an incident in Colchester, Essex, whilst another mission saw him head to Wisbech, Cambridgeshire.

Once flying a man to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, he was waved off by a crowd of nurses.

Onlooker Nina Allen said: "I saw the air ambulance come down and I thought I would have a look to see what was happening. When I initially went over, I did not think about Prince William being there.

"People then saw it was him and started to get really excited. I zoomed in with my camera and got some nice pictures of him. He did not look our way, but he is doing his job and can't be spending all his time waving at onlookers."
