Royal Military Service
 
I want :bang: to know all the Princes and Princess have done the military service and if there are photos.

I believe that all the crown princes have done military service:

CP Frederik was in the royal navy
CP Felipe was in the royal military
CP Haakon
CP WA
CP Phillipe,

other royals:
Prince William of Wales- in training
Prince Harry of Wales- finishing training, to go into guards
the Princess Royal- she served, but I don't remember
Prince Andrew, Duke of York actually served in a war, (did he pilot a boat? I don't remember- but he got some recognition for his service)
the Duchess of Cornwall was recently named the head of some military thing, honorarily

- HM QEII trained as a driver in the royal army during WWII. That's when
she learned how to drive!
- Lord Philip Mountbatten, was serving in the Royal Navy when the thirteen-
year-old daughter of the King of England saw him for the first time. It
was supposedly love at first sight for her. Only after Lt. Philip
Mountbatten returned from serving in WWII did the relationship
became formalized. They were engaged secretly in 1945, but it was not
announced until 1946. They soon married, and Philip was styled HRH
the Duke of Edinburgh.

- Hereditary Grand Duke Guillaume went through schooling and training at
Sandringham Academy in England, where the British Army trains, and
where all Luxembourgish officers train. However, because of his
position as heir to the throne of Luxembourg, he has never served. But
he does look pretty handsome in his uniform on National Days.
-Guillaume's little brother, Prince Louis, served with the military in a peace
keeping role in Kosovo. That is were he met the mother of his son,
who would become his bride.
-Madame Tessy de Nassau, wife of Prince Louis of Luxembourg, was
serving as a nurse in the Luxembourgish military in Kosovo, where she
met her prince. After giving birth to their son several months ago, she
married Louis this month in Luxembourg

Prince Albert II of Monaco served in the French Navy. I believe his late father, Prince Rainier, did as well.

The Princess Royal was never in the military but she she does hold several honourary apppointments including the Blues and Royals where Prince Henry and Prince William are/will be serving with.

If you want pictures of William and Harry check there current event files.

The Duke of York was a helicopter pilot, that was based on an aircraft carrier.

King Abdullah and six of his siblings have done military duty--Prince Faisal, Princess Aisha, Prince Ali, Prince Hamzah, Prince Hashim and Princess Iman. Prince Faisal is the only one who didn't graduate from Sandhurst although he is still active in the Air Force.

Princess Aisha is the first(?) woman Brigadier General in the Jordanian Army while the youngest member of their family who is in the military is Princess Iman, who was commissioned as 2nd lieutenant upon her graduation from Sandhurst.

Princess Iman graduating from Sandhurst, from ViewImages:

just a question: is Princess Iman on active duty? because i haven't read any articles or news about her service in the Army...

Thank you very much, norwegianne, but I need to have others photos. Because I am your fan of him and always I am collected all of his life. I need other links.

CP Frederik was in the royal navy
CP Felipe was in the royal military
CP Haakon
CP WA
CP Phillipe,


I understand that the above royals have trained, but their military service was primarily compliance with protocol if not ceremonial.

Prince Andrew on the other hand actually saw combat in the Falklands and served as a helicopter pilot with valor taking enemy fire on a mission.

Military career
 
The Prince performed his military service in the Royal Netherlands Navy. He is Aide-de-Camp Extraordinary to Her Majesty the Queen.

The Prince performed his military service in the Royal Netherlands Navy from August 1985 to January 1987. He spent several months training at the Royal Naval Institute in Den Helder, after which he served on board the frigates HMS Tromp and HMS Abraham Crijnssen. In 1988, he received refresher training, serving as a duty officer on board the frigate HMS Van Kinsbergen.

After graduating in 1993, the Prince gained his Military Pilot’s Licence with 334 Transport Squadron of the Royal Netherlands Air Force.
In 1994, the Prince spent several months at the Netherlands Defence College, studying aspects of the work of the Royal Netherlands Army and Air Force.

I do not know about the other Crown Princes but Frederik developed a taste for the military and have done alot more then just comply with protocol for cerimonial reasons. He is a fully trained soldier with the special forces.

The Royal Life Guard 1986.
Lieutenant in the Reserve (Army) 1988.
Reconnaissance Platoon Commander with the Royal Guard Hussars’ Regiment 1988.
First Lieutenant in the Reserve (Army) 1989.
Royal Danish Navy Frogman Corps 1995 (equivalent to Special Boat Service – Royal Marines, or US Navy Seals).
First Lieutenant in the Reserve (Navy) 1995.
Captain in the Reserve (Army) 1997.
Lieutenant Commander in the Reserve (Navy) 1997.
Royal Danish Air Force Flying School 2000
Captain in the Reserve (Air Force) 2000.

I am informed of CP Frederik’s “taste”, but the point I am making is that he as with the others have not been tested or seen combat as did Prince Andrew. And perhaps if Denmark was involved in some conflict, he might have seen some combat. I think it highly unlikely as the CP. The days of an heir seeing combat are long over and that is why I say their military service was primarily compliance with protocol if not ceremonial. Have read in some magazines that Prince Harry may serve in Iraq if not dawn a uniform while on Iraqi soil. Suppose it is like expecting a CP of this age to marry equally.

Both CP Frederik and WA were given an all around training .... army, air force & navy. It wouldn't surprise me if this alos applied to CP Felipe and CP Phillipe.

To date the only pictures I have seen of CP Haakon is in the navy.

marian 10-29-2006 10:09 AM

I can't remember. All I can suggest to you is to check it out on Google, which I seem to recall is the way I came across it, or on www.kongehuset.no.

marian 10-29-2006 06:49 PM

tHANK YOU, VERY MUCH HRHCP

Royal Fan 10-29-2006 09:01 PM

Will William be commissioned as a Lt or 2nd Lt?

Von Schlesian 12-25-2006 05:04 AM

Hallo there Royal Fan;
All General Service Officers (GSOs) who graduate from the Royal Military Academy, are commissioned as Second Lieutenants. They then proceed to their more corps-specific training before being posted to their regiments. Usually, it takes between 1-2 years after graduation to be promoted to Lieutenant.

Next Star 02-21-2007 02:14 PM

Queen Elizabeth II is still the only female member of the British royal family to serve in the military and her sons both Prince Charles and Prince Andrew served in the navy.
