Prince Harry will take up a new military role organising major commemorative events involving the Army after completing his attachment with the Army Air Corps flying Apache helicopters from Wattisham in Suffolk.

The Prince, who has twice been deployed to Afghanistan, will become a Staff Officer at HQ London District, which organises ceremonial spectacles like Trooping the Colour and state visits.

Captain Wales, as he was known, had spent three and a half years in training and operations with the Apache Force, most of them based at Wattisham.
