Prince William may not let his six-months-pregnant wife, Kate, win at ping-pong – "Ahem, I think that was 6-2," he teased after beating her in an impromptu match at a Scotland youth center April 4 – but he is getting ready to make bigger concessions to his family-in-the-making.
A source close to William tells PEOPLE the prince will soon announce he's leaving the RAF Valley – a search-and-rescue helicopter unit based in Anglesey, Wales.

Prince William will reveal soon what he hopes to do once his current tour of duty as a Royal Air Force helicopter rescue pilot ends this summer.
"Changes [in his life] are afoot," a source close to William tells PEOPLE. And while most royal insiders believe that he will signal the end of the idyllic life he and wife Kate have enjoyed in north Wales, the question does arise: What will he do next?
Palace officials are set to unveil that decision in the coming weeks, and he has several options: to stay in the RAF; move to another branch of the military (including possibly going back to the original regiment he joined, the Household Cavalry); or to leave service completely.

It was a fundraising week for the Duchess of Cambridge!
First, she spent two hours doing early Christmas shopping Wednesday at a children's charity bazaar at the Burlington Arcade in Mayfair, accompanied by her and Prince William's dog Lupo, as well as her sister Pippa Middleton.
"Kate was absolutely gorgeous, so friendly. There were many of our lowly fundraising team there and she was so warm to them," says Paul Abbott, the charity's fundraising and communications director.

Everybody's looking? Who cares – Prince William wants the world to know he loves his dog.
William, during a break from playing in a charitable match at the Gloucestershire Festival of Polo on Sunday, scooped up his cocker spaniel, Lupo, and walked around the grounds showering the pup with kisses as the Duchess of Cambridge kept a fond eye on her boys.
Prince Harry, Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall were also in attendance, as was young Savannah Phillips – Zara's niece – who got a lesson in walking the dog by an attentive Kate.

Little Lupo went to a royal polo game in the Gloucestershire countryside Sunday – and got a cuddle and more from Prince William.
It was Kate who'd brought the couple's black cocker spaniel to the outing, just hours after she'd spent time with inner-city kids on a camping trip in Kent.
"In true spaniel fashion he was very playful," an observer tells PEOPLE.
And while he got some exercise by dashing around the sidelines with Kate, Lupo also got to rest his legs when he was embraced in the arms of William, – who planted a princely kiss on the pooch, to boot.

It doesn't take much to bring Kate down to earth.
After days of buoyant Diamond Jubilee celebrations for Queen Elizabeth, the Duchess of Cambridge slipped into something more comfortable – jeans, Barbour jacket and a hat – and stepped out for a walk through Kensington Gardens with her dog Lupo, her younger brother James Middleton, and another dog, presumed to be a Middleton family cocker spaniel.
The siblings were spotted last week by Canadian TVjournalist Jocelyn Laidlaw in a chance sighting at Kensington Gardens in London.
"Catherine Duchess of Cambridge walking Lupo today in Kensington Gardens," Laidlaw wrote. "Lovely to see her so low-key. What luck."
