It was announced via Kensington Palace this morning that His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge has decided to “…leave operational service in the Armed Forces.”
Per a press release:
“He [The Duke of Cambridge] completes his Tour with the Royal Air Force Search and Rescue Force at RAF Valley, Anglesey, after more than seven-and-a-half years of full-time military service.
He will continue to support the work of The Queen and the Royal Family through a programme of official engagements, both at home and overseas, with The Duchess of Cambridge.
The Duke will work closely over the next twelve months with the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
