His second tour of Helmand, in 2012, is believed to be one of the few times in his life that the prince found real satisfaction away from the constraints and pressures of royal life.

Harry’s military career ended in June 2015, but he remained a passionate supporter of the Armed Forces and received a number of ceremonial military titles.

Known as “Captain Wales” by his comrades, he proudly told a fellow soldier, “I have the best of both worlds. I can do all this. I can fly helicopters. I can put the work I want to do in the spotlight. ‘

It was the army that gave Harry his first taste of life, apart from a royal life.

His most prominent military title is as Captain General of the Royal Marines, a role he was succeeded by the Queen in December 2017 to succeed the Duke of Edinburgh.
