Once he finishes his training I would think we would see less of him as he should actually be serving the defence force. Would this be correct or am I way off the base? Maybe someone could enlighten me with past experience of royals in the defence force?

I never thought of Harry as particularly sensitive. Diana always said that William got bothered by things more easily but stuff seemed to roll off of Harry's back. He was more happy go lucky.

He may have changed after his mother's death but I can't imagine he changed that much.

We certainly saw less of Prince Charles and Prince Andrew once they had passed out. Prince Charles was away for ages and reporters were only given very limited access, although on a ship, it's easier to give him some privacy. Prince Andrew was 'missing' from the papers while he was on duty, apart from the occasional posed picture.
I presume that Harry will go where he is sent with his regiment and that photo opportunites will be scarce.
You will always get the paparazzi lurking in the bushes to get a new photo of him though.:)

It's unlikely though. What the media forgets to tell you, is how many others have missed training events due to injuries.
Poor Prince Harry is made to look a complete slacker, when in fact he has probable missed less than others doing the same training.:)
All of injuries/illiness so far I am sure have been substantiated or he would be exsused from training.

I am sure his doctors will say anything Harry wants them to say.

I think his father would much prefer Harry staying out of the news than being the headliner. During his gap years, Harry sure worked hard to keep the red tops in business.

Training is normally 3 x 14 week terms and then further training for your arm or service.
Thank you.
I know that the training at RMA Sandhurst.

That's a VERY good point! It's also not fair (maybe because he's a prince?) that he can get away with that and not get in any trouble. Any of the other cadets did that as much as Harry would no doubt get reprimanded or worse.

I don't know about Harry but when I did Basic Training in the Army I got a SERIOUS case of tendinitis! I limped for almost two weeks. A friend of mine had it worse-he ended up on crutches! I don't know about the British system but in the U.S. we were required to march for at least 18 miles a week total-with 80 pound packs on our backs and it was the same for the men and the women. Boots really give your feet a pounding. They're not natural to run in like trainers.

I did wounder about the rank thing in tha article and would the Regiment that sponsors the cadet ever give enlisted/NCO ranks to that cadet while they are training at Sandhurst?

NCO ranks are never given to officers in training. According to the services, officers and enlisted men and women are two different life forms.
Near the end of training at Sandhurst, the officer cadets can apply to the regiment they want to join, whether they are accepted or not is based on their pass score.
I can't see Harry having a problem in being accepted by any of them but, he may be limited which ones he can apply to by his Father or the palace.:)

Yes, I seriously doubt that a regiment would reject a prince.

ok I know this has nothing to do with the current topic of discussion but I just can't get it out of my head so I thought I'd share. On the WB in the US is a show called Related and one of the characters on the show is a huge fan of Harry's. And last night on the show the guy (who's in his 30's and british) got all emotional saying that Harry has more strength and decency in is pinky than William and Charles put together. I thought it was funny at how emotional and defensive the character was of Harry but I also thought it was cool Wills and Charles were being over looked for Harry.
