It has been confirmed that Prince Harry will be arriving in Australia this coming Monday to begin his four week secondment with the Australian Army.

He will land in Sydney before heading directly to Canberra to visit the Australian War Memorial. Here, accompanied by the Australian Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove, Prince Harry will lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and then tour the World War I and Afghanistan galleries. A short meet-and-greet with members of the public will take place before the Prince officially reports for duty.

The Prince will then spend the next four weeks training with various regiments of the Australian Army in Sydney, Darwin and Perth. According to the Australian Defence Force, Captain Wales will take part in “urban training exercises, regional bush patrols, flight simulation and aviation activities, joint fire exercises and Indigenous engagements activities” as well as routine activities.

He is “tremendously looking forward” to his time in Australia.

Prince Harry will also attend the Gallipoli centenary  celebrations in Turkey on April 24 and 25 with the Prince of Wales.
