Prince William celebrates his 29th birthday

Just-married Prince William is celebrating his 29th birthday at work.

The prince, a helicopter search and rescue pilot in the Royal Air Force, will be on duty at a base on an island off the coast of Wales and is expected to mark his birthday privately.

The prospect of a low-key birthday on Tuesday might appeal to the prince following his blow-out April 29 wedding to Kate Middleton. He is also due to travel to Canada and the United States next month on his first official overseas trip as a married man.

William's grandfather, Prince Philip, recently celebrated his 90th birthday with a full day of official engagements.
