Arriving in dramatic style by helicopter, the Duke of Sussex took over the prestigious position from his grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh.

The base in Lympstone near Exeter is the Royal Marines' Commando Training Centre in Devon.

Prince Harry has been meeting recruits as they've been put through their paces in the gym and on the commando assault course.

The royal also met with the Invictus Games Racing drivers - two professionals and four injured ex-servicemen - who competed in two specially adapted Jaguar GT4 race cars in the 2018 British GT Championship.
