LONDON (AP) - Just-married Prince William is celebrating his 29th birthday at work.

The prince, a helicopter search-and-rescue pilot in the Royal Air Force, is 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 at Westminster Abbey 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.
