It is unlikely that he will guard the Queen as he is not, at this time, joining the Mounted Division.

He is going to receive further training with the Reconnaissance Division, with the hope of becoming a Troop Leader.

I agree with you, I too don't see the fuzz. Prince Andrew were active in that Falkland Island thing in the 1980s, weren't he? And he is the third in line too.

It only seems to be the press making a fuss at all. Yes Andrew was flying helicopters on active service when the UK was at war over the Falkland Islands in 1982.:)

I haven't looked through the entire thread, so I'm not sure if this has been mentioned, but I was reading "Closer" Magazine and apparently Harry visited a local nightclub in Windsor called "Liquid", whch they described as being quite chavvy, so for the non-Brits read skanky.
Apparently he was there with a group of friends and spent most of the night in the VIP area, but was really friendly and had his photo with whoever asked.

I'm glad that Harry finally chose a regiment. The Blues and Royals look good in uniform and so will he. Just a question. Is Princess Anne the the colonel in chief of this regiment or am I mistaking? Thanks to anyone who knows the answer to this.

Queen Elizabeth is the Colonel in Chief, while Princess Anne is a mere Colonel.

Yes, Queen Elizabeth II is the Commander in Chief for The Blues and Royals (Royal Horse Guards and 1st Dragoons).

Only two vacancies. Is there already jostling for appointment? :)

One major problem for your wish for William - there won't be a Kings Own Scottish Borderers, all the Scottish regiments are being amalgamated to form a single Scottish regiment.
They couldn't really have a Troop Leader (2nd Lieuy) as a CIC, they can only hold one rank at a time or are you hoping they can bypass all the lower ranks?

Both Harry and William will wait until they have left the army before becoming Colonel's-in-Chief of any regiments. That will be probably about four years at least for William and even longer for Harry. By then some of the older royals may have stood down as C-in-C of their regiments or even have passed on - horrible thought I know but one we all face.

I think that they will retire in the next four years, not pass on.

Well the magazine had 1 picture, but I have no access to a scanner, however I think most of the photos he posed for were via camera phones.
