The Prince has plenty to celebrate - his Invictus Games for injured servicemen and women has been hailed a success.

He also won the respect of the public by serving in Afghanistan, successful international tours and his charity work.

Harry will inherit an estimated £10.7 million from his late mother's estate, which a financial planning expert believed could "support him and a future family for generations".

Prince wants to take Invictus Games out of London

Prince Harry says he wants to take his Invictus Games out of London and give the rest of the country a taste of its warrior spirit.

The international sporting event for wounded servicemen and women comes to an end on Sunday after five days of competition and Prince Harry said next time it could be staged in the north of England or Scotland before being taken abroad.

"We've now got America showing interest in 2016 and Canada showing interest in 2017, so the question is what do we do next year? I personally would love to keep it in the UK, maybe head north whether it be Glasgow, whether it be Sheffield, whether it be Manchester."
