Prince Harry is leaving the 3 Regiment Army Air Corps to take up a role in London.
The Prince will take the position of SO3 (Defence Engagement). His responsibilities will include helping to co-ordinate commemorative events involving the Army in London. Prince Harry will retain the rank of Captain and be based from Horse Guards, in Central London.
Prince Harry spent three and a half years in training and operational service with the Apache Force during his attachment to the Army Air Corps.
He undertook an operational tour of Afghanistan as an Apache Pilot between September 2012 and January 2013, where he worked as part of the Joint Aviation Group which provides helicopter support to the International Security and Assistance Force and Afghan forces.
Lieutenant Colonel Tom de la Rue, who commanded Prince Harry in the Army Air Corps said:
“Captain Wales has reached the pinnacle of flying excellence as an Apache pilot, particularly in Afghanistan and, in the process, has proved to be a real inspiration to the many Army Air Corps officers and soldiers who have come to know him so well over the last two years.”
Prince Harry remains a Commissioned Officer in the Household Cavalry.
