I really couldn't picture Harry in the civil service - stuck in an office all day is just not Harry.

He could do some sort of park ranger job I suppose.

Whatever he does, assuming he even really considers leaving the army, he will need to be doing things outside using his apparent love of things physical rather than things mental.

A camp counselor is something I see a teenage boy doing over the summer to make some money between semesters in high school......not the 2nd son of the future King.

I give up, I have no idea what matches both the princes interests and abilities for a future career, besides being in the army, which he may shortly be resigning his commission.

I guess what I mean is that the young man needs interests other than partying and drinking. I would be quite happy for him if he could devote himself to art or even polo, if that were his main interest (and he wouldn't have to be the best in the world). I don't think Harry would be particularly happy with a desk job or getting a university degree, but he needs an avocation/occupation, preferably one that burns up some of his energy.

That's actually quite a good idea. It brought to mind Riding for the Disabled and even The Prince's Trust. That sort of project would combine Harry's love of outdoorsy activities with really worthwhile charitable and social purposes. It would be something that's useful to society but not party-political. He doesn't need tertiary qualifications and his youth is no obstacle. He could employ or engage the assistance of other people to take care of the organisational and financial matters he can't handle. His experience in the military would probably be useful, too.

Involvement in this sort of project would be a suitable primary occupation yet provide the flexibility he will need to be able to perform Royal duties.

This sort of riding is very theraputic for the children and it builds confidence in there own abilities. The children realize that they are not disabled and learn the joy of riding.

The Princes recently talked with American morning talk show host Matt Lauer, and revealed their career wishes (if they weren't royal):

William -- Helicopter pilot

Harry -- safari guide in Africa

DRUDGE REPORT FLASH 2007®

"RE. WHAT THEY WOULD BE IF THEY WEREN’T PRINCES

LAUER: If your last name weren't "Windsor," if it were "Smith" or "Jones," and you didn't have the duties that you were born into, what would you wanna do professionally?

PRINCE HARRY: All sorts of things.

LAUER: Like what?

PRINCE WILLIAM: Well, when I was younger, I wanted to be a policeman. And I wouldn't wanna be that now. (LAUGHTER)

LAUER: The most popular cop on the block.

PRINCE WILLIAM: Yeah, exactly.

LAUER: What would you wanna do?

PRINCE HARRY: I think it's-- it's--

PRINCE WILLIAM: I don't know. It's a really tricky question. I guess. I'd like to fly helicopters, definitely. I'd like to be some sort of heli pilot, you know, working for the UN maybe or something like that. Go off and do some, you know, I'd have to be doing something active -- outside and doing sort of fun stuff but with an edge to helping people.

LAUER: What about you, Harry?

PRINCE WILLIAM: He'd probably sit and play computer games and drink beer. (LAUGHTER)

PRINCE HARRY: Oh, thanks a lot. No, honestly, I don't know how well this would get on, but I'd probably live in Africa. I'd, you know, I'd like to spend all my time out there.

LAUER: In a humanitarian aspect?

PRINCE HARRY: Both. It would be a humanitarian aspect and as well as a sort of a safari aspect. I would have to get a job. So it would probably be a safari guide."

Since Prince William has been trained in search and resue perhaps he could do this as a civilian job.

Prince Harry could be a sarfai guide.

I could see Prince Charles doing a garden tour or doing a tour on architecture building tour in England. It would be very interesting to hear him speak about this.

i think Andrew could model for GQ. Lose a bit weight my dear and the job is yours. Wouldn't that be something?

Sounds like a good idea. I imagine in his younger days he could have modeled for GQ. I can just see him dressed in a tailored suit. He would look very very good.
