Prince has been serving as a soldier for the past ten years in the British army. During which he went on two tours to Afghanistan. On Monday, March 16, Prince Harry announced his retirement from the military and bid adieu to his captain duties.
The crimson-haired Prince made an announcement saying, “After a decade of service, moving on from the army has been a really tough decision. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have had the chance to do some very challenging jobs and have met many fantastic people in the process. From learning the hard way to stay onside with my Color Sergeant at [military academy] Sandhurst, to the incredible people I served with during two tours in Afghanistan – the experiences I have had over the last 10 years will stay with me for the rest of my life. For that I will always be hugely grateful.”
He added, “Inevitably most good things come to an end and I am at a crossroads in my military career. Luckily for me, I will continue to wear the uniform and mix with fellow servicemen and women for the rest of my life, helping where I can, and making sure the next few Invictus Games are as amazing as the last. While I am finishing one part of my life, I am getting straight into a new chapter. I am really looking forward to it.”
