London, Sept 5 (ANI): Prince William is set to promoted as a search-and-rescue pilot, which means his long-time girlfriend Kate Middleton will now see much less of him than when he was training.
According to RAF sources, the Prince is going to have to move into barracks at RAF Valley in Anglesey after he passes out later this month.
William's promotion spells bad news for Middleton, who will now see much less of him than when he was training, as the Prince will spend up to two weeks a month on base.
At present, Middleton, 28, spends much of her time at the farmhouse William rents on the island.
She moved many of her belongings there over the summer, further fuelling speculation that the couple will soon get engaged.
"The wait for Kate is going to be even longer," the Daily Mail quoted a source as saying.
"The truth is that over the next few months, she is going to be seeing a lot less of William as he will be spending nearly two weeks of every month on base.
"The reason is that he will be on two shift rotas. For the shifts known as "firsts" he will be working round the clock and will need to be on base with his aircraft.
"He will be expected to be airborne within 15 minutes and there is no way he can do that if he's not on the campus. When he does "second shifts" he will be able to be on call and then he'll be able to stay at home with Kate," the source added. (ANI)
