Harry, who spent Remembrance Sunday in Kandahar in honour of the fallen, will present No 26 squadron RAF Regiment with a new standard during a parade at Royal Air Force Honington near Bury St Edmunds.

He will then watch the regiment parade before visiting the station's new heritage centre and meeting service personnel and their families.

A standard, a historic ceremonial flag, is presented to RAF Regiment squadrons every 25 years and represents hundreds of years of history of service to the monarch and to the country.

Royal Air Force Honington is the RAF's centre of Force Protection and is the depot of the Royal Air Force Regiment - the ground fighting force of the RAF.

The regiment protects air bases from attack and is trained in a wide range of RAF protection roles.

The Queen appointed her grandson Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Honington in October 2008.

Harry last visited the base in February 2012, when he presented a selection of service commendations to RAF personnel and crews who were serving in Afghanistan.

In July 2010 he also visited the base to present the families of two servicemen killed in Afghanistan with the Elizabeth Cross.
