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.

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!
