According to the statement, the prince, who served as a captain, will be dismissed from the armed forces after a trip to Australia. “He will spend four weeks and serve in the local armed forces”, reports Tass.
Harry, who turned 30 years old, intends to further dedicate himself to charitable organizations involved in support of military veterans, protection of wildlife and the development of Africa.
However, as previously the Prince reported, he is “not fully defined” with the choice of profession, and is considering variants for the future. The decision to leave the army, as Harry noted, “was taken in a very hard time, but he was glad with the possibility of a new chapter in his life.”
Prince Harry began serving in the British armed forces in 2005 – after graduating from the prestigious Military Academy at Sandhurst. Early in his career, he asked to be sent to serve in Iraq, where British troops clashed with insurgents.
In 2007 he was sent to Afghanistan, where he served for 2.5 months as a helicopter dispatcher and took part in the battles with the Taliban. Prince’s trip was kept secret, and he was evacuated from Afghanistan when the foreign press reported about his presence there.
In late 2012 – early 2013 Prince Harry was again sent to Afghanistan for 5 months. This time, he served as a pilot of a military helicopter and performed combat missions.
Harry’s brother Prince William left active duty in the age of 30. Their father – Prince of Wales Charles retired from the Navy at the age of 28 years.
