Prince Harry Confirms Speculation That He Will Be Leaving the Armed Forces


After 10 years in the armed forces, Prince Harry announced via Kensington Palace that he will end his active duty as June 2015. He remains undecided about his next steps and as usual there is lots of speculation!

If Prince William isn’t ready to become a full-time royal, I doubt Prince Harry is. There is lots of chatter about him hoping to avoid same mistakes that his brother made – not too sure what those mistakes are but apparently settling (down) and starting a family before being ready is one of them.

He is very involved with charities, including his African-based one focusing on helping orphans and vulnerable children in Lesotho, and takes great pride in his work with wounded soldiers. One can only imagine that he will take on an even greater role within these causes along with others.

Prince Harry will spend four weeks with the Australian Defense Force and then embark on a tour of New Zealand before wrapping up active duty in June.

Prince William Passed Air Ambulance Pilot Exams


Kensington Palace announced last week that Prince William passed his air ambulance pilot exams and will work out of East Anglia. Before he starts flying, the Prince will have to do further training, which he is expected to complete by early summer according to Sky News. Prince William will work full-time and donate his salary to charity. It is widely expected that after his second child is born, the Cambridges will move to Amner Hall in Norfolk and make that their main residence.

Prince William Arrives at Cambridge

Prince William traveled by train today from London to Cambridge to begin his bespoke course at St. John’s College at Cambridge University. His 10 week course is designed to him prepare in his future role as Prince of Wales in charge of the 763 million pound, 130,000 acre Duchy of Cornwall estate. While he has been given on campus housing, he is expected to take the 45 minute train ride daily from Kensington Palace.

His decision to attend Cambridge has not been without criticism; students have claimed that the Prince’s A-Level results of A, B, and C did not make him qualified to attend the prestigious university. The Prince went on to achieve a 2:1 in geography at St. Andrews in 2005.

As expected, the university has denied giving Prince William any special treatment and have insisted that his course is one of many designed by the sustainability leadership program for senior company executives and others willing to pay.
