17th March 2015, Comments 0 comments

Prince Harry announced Tuesday he is to leave the British army after 10 years' service that has seen him fight on the front line in Afghanistan twice.

The 30-year-old said it had been a "really tough decision" to end his military service in June, but added that he was looking forward to the next chapter in his life.

Harry, who will be pushed down to fifth in line to the throne by his brother Prince William's second child, due in April, will end his military service after a four-week secondment to the Australian Defence Force in April and May.

"I am considering the options for the future and I am really excited about the possibilities," he said, in a statement released by his Kensington Palace official residence.
