It's not a silly question at all:) . Normal officers, when they pass out (graduate) do not get a medal. All they get is a different coloured hat band or hat and their rank pips (insignias).
I know nothing about the US Army or Navy (or much about the British Navy) to be honest. :)

Yes but some of the people at The Sun, don't appear to be very intelligent.

Sorry - I forgot about campaign medals.

I think though that British/Australia troops receive far fewer medals than do their American counterparts.

Did anyone else see that show JAG when they had that Aussie lawyer, Brumbie? The number of medals/ribbons her was wearing would have made him the most decorated member of the Australian military in our history or at least close to it.

That is the million dollar question.
It seems he has indicated that he would like to be a career soldier (stay in for the full 22 years) but, he has also said he is interested in doing some charity work to help the children of Lesotho.
I should think that like a lot of 21 year olds, as he gets older it could all change.:)

He is royal. The military would let him take off to do some things for Lesthoto.

His immediate future after leaving Sandhurst will be to do the specific training relating to his chosen area of the army - infantry, cavalry etc.

Then he will join his regiment and do what they are doing I suppose.

I think he will join the Welsh Guards but I think he has to learn Welsh first that is if he doesn't know it already. Is welsh a difficult language to learn?

No you don't have to speak Welsh to be in the Welsh Guards:) . Which is just as well, otherwise the majority of those serving with them, would be out of a job.

Are we sure that he wants to go to the Welsh guards? I think I've heard he might want to go elsewhere.

This is all set to change when all 6 Scottish regiments are to be disbanded or amalgamated to become the Royal Regiment of Scotland.:)

I assumed that he may want to go there since his father is the prince of wales. Also I remember reading about him going to visit Sandhurst before he enrolled and he asked about the Welsh Guards and the army guy said he had to learn welsh.

I think the guy must have been joking about speaking Welsh to join the Welsh Guards. Even in the Scottish regiments they don't have to speak Gaelic.

But I really remember hearing that he was thinking of joining something else. I guess he changed his mind.

Most people don't know which regiment he wants to join, we don't even know if he has applied for or been accepted by anyone yet. :)

Prince Harry to join Household Cavalry

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Prince Harry, younger son of heir-to-the-throne Britain's Prince Charles, will join the elite Household Cavalry when he completes his officer training in April, Buckingham Palace said on Wednesday.

The Cavalry is made up of two of the British Army's most senior and oldest regiments -- The Blues and Royals and The Life Guards -- and is tasked with protecting Queen Elizabeth on ceremonial and state occasions, meaning the prince may have to guard his own grandmother.

The 21-year-old, who joined the elite Sandhurst military academy last year, will serve in the Blues and Royals with the aim of becoming an armored reconnaissance troop leader, a statement said.

Prince Harry to join Blues and Royals

Prince Harry is to join the Blues and Royals regiment of the Household Cavalry, Clarence House has confirmed.

The 21-year-old third in line to the throne hopes to become an Armoured Reconnaissance Troop Leader at the forefront of Army operations.
He will move into the historic Army outfit after completing his Sandhurst training in April.

The Cavalry is the Army's most senior and oldest regiment - made up of both the Blues and Royals and the Life Guards - and is tasked with protecting the Queen on ceremonial and state occasions, meaning the Prince may have to guard his own grandmother.
