Prince Harry’s army career ends today, the prince will head to southern Africa for conservation projects

The announcement was made on the Kensington Palace Twitter account today, June 19.

The Palace also said in a statement: “The prince has had a fulfilling military career and considers it a huge honour to have served his country in the armed forces, during which time he has undertaken two operational tours of duty in Afghanistan, qualified as an Apache Aircraft Commander, spearheaded the Invictus Games and – most recently – undertaken an attachment with the Australian Defence Force.”

Harry, 30, is set to leave for Africa any day now, and head to Botswana, Namibia, Tanzania and South Africa during the three months of “working on front-line conservation projects.”

Prince Henry might miss his niece Prince Charlotte’s baptism as he will be in Africa at the time of the event.
