Harry could study at a trade school, he likes to work with his hands.

Artist? Doesn't Viscount Linley do really avantgarde furniture designs???

Until William gets hitched and produces an heir, decreasing the pressure on Harry to be on ready as the "spare", then I think Harry will wander rather aimlessly as far as a career goes. I keep thinking about all the conflicts of interest that must be considered as the 3rd in line to the throne if he were to work anywhere...

Glad I'm just little me, and not one of "them".

Archduke Lorenz of Habsburg-Este, Prince of Belgium:
General Partner E. Gutzweiler & Cie. Banquiers Basel, Geneva & Zürich

Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands:
Strategic Consultant for the RAND Corporation Europe in Brussels. Furthermore he is advisor to the European Commission in Brussels.

Don Iñaki Urdangarín Liebaert, Duke of Palma:
Director of planning and development for Motorpress Ibérica and a founding partner of Noos Consultoría Estratégica.

Etc.
Most of these royals actually have positions in companies and not just as advisors. Very commendable.

Why can't the higher-royals get positions like these? I think that even Prince Charles should be allowed to do something like this as he does have some passions about many different things. His interests seem to beg for running more the Duchy and opening hospitals (not a putdown).

What is Peter Philips doing now? Is he still in sports medicine? And, does he have any charities that he is involved with?

Cowarth, this was meant to be a serious discussion. It's not meant to be a list of jobs plucked out of the air. Thanks.

In finding a career for Harry, what are his:
LIKES/DISLIKES
STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES
APTITUDES
Just some food for thought?

Harry could be a spokesperson for Sentebale. The organization and Harry both believe in the work that is being done in Lesotho.

But is a spokesperson a "career"?. This has to be something that is challenging and fulfilling and something that will be a full-time job.

Had it not been for the costume incident he could have made quite a good ambassador or Governor-General but as we know, some people will never let him forget it and he'd take a pasting in the press if he was appointed to that kind of position I'm sure.

Well anybody can be an ambassador if they have a silver tongue and know what fork to use.

Are ambassadors the main point of contact between governments?

Well, they represent the Government of the country they're from so Harry could be Ambassador to Sweden or something. In the same vein he could be a high commissioner. Making him a Govenor-General and thus having a member of the Royal Family permanently in some commonwealth nations might be quite a bonus especially with Canada and Australia.
