Given the state of the world, I don't think Harry can ever be without security.

They are also only away from home for about two weeks at a time - so anything longer than that and the security team is changed - first class airfares out and back and first class hotels - for when they are off duty. The on-duty part of the team are with the protectee but they are only on duty for 8 hours at a time - with Harry therefore there would be 6 officers - 2 on duty and 4 off duty.
Hah! I wonder what the Australian tax payer will think of this! I can tell you that as an Australian tax payer (who has a thing for red heads) DO NOT want to fund his trip here!!!

The main reason that Harry will need security for the foreseeable future is that he fought in Afghanistan for his country.

The article posted said he wanted to work more with his charities and to spend time working on conservation in Africa. IIRC, TUSK does a lot of work in Africa (both Harry and William have been in a documentary with Ben Fogel about this), Sentebale is a joint effort for the children of Lesotho and Harry has done a lot of work for wounded servicemen so that does cover all three of the basic categories for the Foundation although perhaps not all included in the Foundation.

I just brought up the Royal Foundation as someone suggested that to be structured, he could take on some of Charles' causes with the Prince's Trust. I think he has plenty to keep him busy with his own foundation.

Correct. As well as his ill-advised comments and behavior. He can never be without security as a result. Sad but true. He likely has learned the hard way after the fact. Consequences must be lived with.

That would be outstanding. Hope he does so.

We will have to wait to see how much charity work Harry does or if he becomes Holiday Harry.

Was it Charles' idea to get Harry to join the protection of red squirrels or was it Harry's idea to protect one of his own?

The Royal Foundation to me seems more like a grant making organization. They raise the money and then direct to various projects/charities that do the actually hands on work.

I can only wish all our Australian friends the best of luck in their chances of meeting Harry!

With regard to future security for Harry, I would have no problem in whatever security arrangements there might be for him if he were to spend time in Africa, provided what he does out there has great value and worth to the people he is helping and we back in the UK have some understanding of what he is actually doing.

Harry is independently wealthy so outside security, he costs the crown very little.
We should be rejoicing that he plans a career with his charities, Harry could easily retire to a large estate or join wealthy jet setters.

Since the games, how much time has Harry spent in the active Army?

Harry expenses are covered by his father's income from the DoC which the money will go to his brother when Charles becomes King. Harry isn't going to a have a private income source like his brother and father will. Harry has inherited 10-20 million but that isn't going to sustain a jet set lifestyle or a large estate for very long.

One advantage of working in the armed services, even as a civil adjunct, is that it comes with a built in level of security for much of the work day. Of course, an office in BP does that as well, but I've always thought Harry had too much wanderlust to live a life in any single pile of bricks.

That was my immediate thought.

I always thought Andrew made a mistake in leaving the navy when he did; I hope Harry won't regret this decision.
