Our 5 pic homage to Prince Harry in uniform as he bids farewell to the army

17 March 2015, 12:40

London — It's a soldier's life no more for Britain's Prince Harry.

Royal officials said on Tuesday that the 30-year old prince will leave the armed forces in June after 10 years of service that included two tours of duty in Afghanistan.

Harry's final army duties will include a four-week assignment in April and May with the Australian Defence Force. The prince will spend time in Darwin, Perth and Sydney and attend centenary commemorations of the World War I Gallipoli campaign in Turkey.

Harry said that leaving the army had been "a really tough decision" but he was excited about the future.

In a statement, Harry said he felt "incredibly lucky" to have had the chance to serve in the armed forces.

"From learning the hard way to stay onside with my Color Sergeant at 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," he said.

"For that I will always be hugely grateful."

To celebrate Harry's good work as a soldier we found 5 pics of the Prince in uniform that we are going to miss:

Kensington Palace said that after leaving the army Harry will volunteer with the British military's Recovery Capability Program, which helps wounded service members, "while actively considering other longer-term employment opportunities".

Harry was the first British royal to see combat since his uncle, Prince Andrew, who flew Royal Navy helicopters during the 1982 Falklands War.

His older brother Prince William also attended Sandhurst before training as a Royal Navy search-and-rescue helicopter pilot. He has since left the navy to become an air-ambulance pilot.

Oh how we'll miss seeing things like this...
