Prince Harry Will Quit the Armed Forces This Year

Prince Harry is reportedly set to quit his role as a member of the armed forces later this year, according to People.

The 30-year-old royal has been using his role in the army to help injured servicemen and women find new jobs or continue their services within the armed forces. He plans on continuing this work once he leaves his position.

“He feels he can use his position to help in the future, regardless of his military role,” a source said. Harry will also be spending time with his charity projects, like his organization Sentebale and his work with the Paralympic-style Invictus Games.

Prince Harry is currently focused on his work supporting the Ministry of Defense’s recovery capability program to ensure those who are wounded injured or sick have appropriate recovery plans and the necessary support they require,” a rep for the royal said, without confirming the news. “It’s a natural progression from the work he did organizing the Invictus Games. This involves working alongside case officers in London District’s Personal Recovery Unit and visiting various recovery centers and partner agencies (like Forces charities and the [public] health service) around the country.”

    Why is Harry really quitting? Was he forced out because William is declining more Royal duties (to do his civilian job) and someone had to take up the slack? Or does Harry want to find a wife and realized there was no way a girl was going to put up with his Army career?
