He’s always up to something exciting and on Monday (April 6) Prince Harry arrived at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, Australia.
The handsome British royal reported for a month-long assignment with the Australian Defense Force, which will take him to Sydney, Perth and Darwin. A palace spokesperson told press, "Prince Harry has trained and served alongside Australian armed forces on operational tours to Afghanistan; he has met them during the Invictus Games; and even trekked to the South Pole with a couple of Australian soldiers.”
He’s spent the past ten years as a soldier in the British Army, including two tours in Afghanistan, and on Monday (March 16) Prince Harry retired from his duties as captain.
The crimson-haired royal announced, “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.”
It looks like Prince Harry isn’t laying low after being shot down by Emma Watson (sigh). The royal made his way to the northern most point of England for two very different, but very important engagements.
The 30-year-old prince paid a visit to the Northumberland Wildlife Trust to learn about their Red Squirrels Northern England project, which works to conserve the endangered species’ population and oversee grey squirrel control.
