I think Harry has gotten away with a lot because he was young and wild. When he hits 40 this benefit will be gone, even more so, should he not be doing something of purpose by then and live a luxury lifestyle for everyone to see. I agree with other posters that he is at a difficult crossroads now.

And just in case after 'Airmiles Andy' follows 'Holiday Harry', we know for sure that the british tabloids read TRF. We've seen it here first!

Well I'm glad he won't be in another combat.
If he needs a role model in being a decent royal, it's his aunt Anne.

While I deeply respect and admire our Princess Royal, why only Anne? Edward is the poster child for overcoming the innate difficulties of "having an ordinary life" in the UK.

Both he and his wife tried to have careers but it didn't matter what they tried, they were always accused of "using the BRF", and sadly Harry would be in the same position were it not for learning from his uncle and aunt. So, like them, he seems set the go the "Royal" way of becoming a Full Time Royal which really only allows him to function in a limited sphere of a mix of royal and charity apperarances.

On the upside, I see he has taken the plight of the Red Squirrel, one of his father's pet projects, to heart. Here's to hoping he becomes more involved with his father's charities.

I agree. I think it would be perfect for Harry to step into Charles' Prince's Trust.

The recent posts talking about Harry finding love in Australia or New Zealand have been moved to the Prince Harry: Relationship Suggestions and Musings 2015 thread.

According to Robert Jobson (via Twitter and Evening Standard) Harry is leaving the Armed Forces in June. He will spend 4 weeks in April and May seconded to the Australian Defence Force. He is expected to spend time at Army Barracks in Darwin, Perth and Sydney. He will then undertake a toyal tour of NZ in May after the secondment.

According to Jobson he is spending time in Africa this summer as well.

I hope Harry has thought this through. The army was his get out of jail free card and immunised him from criticism.

Yes I hope he finds a job that will keep him busy, happy, and be worthwhile with not too many holidays

I have a hunch he didn't have a choice. He had become a liability. My suspicion is that this has been a done-deal since the Las Vegas episode (and all the hoopla with the naked soldiers on-line in 'solidarity' with Harry) as well as the unfortunate interview in Afghanistan that followed. Basically, he was given desk-duty and had to lay low for a considerable time so that when he exited it would not look like a cause-and-effect. That's my hunch.

He cooked his goose a long while back. They did it this way because (let's face it) he's royal. This way, he's 'saved face'.

I don't think that at all. The military situation has totally changed in both Afghanistan and Iraq, so too the military deployments. Add to that the fact that flying Apache's is a "young man's game" and Harry started out later than his fellow pilots.

If I know anything, it's the military attitude to "boys (Officers) will be boys" and love him or hate him, Harry was one of the best "Poster Boy's" for the Military in decades.
