Prince Harry Earns a Military Promotion

by at . Comments

Prince Harry already held the title of Best Man in April 29 Royal Wedding.

Now he's added a new title to his repertoire: Captain in the British Army!

Prince Harry, a former lieutenant, received the promotion Thursday in honor of the time he's served in the Armed Forces. He qualified as an Apache helicopter pilot as well.

Captain Prince Harry

The 26-year-old Harry is qualified to fly an Apache helicopter without an instructor, and will now move on to a rigorous eight-month weapons course.

At that point, he'll become a full-functioning Army Air Corps pilot. The younger Prince of Wales getting his pilot qualification was no easy task, either.

His first eighth-month course, included day and night flying, ground training, complex simulator training and mountain flying exercises in the Alps.

Looks like it paid off. Congrats to Captain Harry!
