Britain's feisty Prince Harry, son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, has completed his attachment in the Third Regiment Army Air Corps. His new role will be as Staff Officer in the HQ London District.

According to the palace, Harry’s new responsibilities will include "helping to co-ordinate significant projects and commemorative events involving the Army in London." He will retain the rank of Captain and be based from Horse Guards, located in Central London.

While in the Army Corps, Prince Harry served two tours in Afghanistan as an Apache pilot, first in 2007 and again in 2012.

While in Afghanistan, the young royal was targeted by the Taliban for kidnapping and assassination in 2012. At the time, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Reuters that they were "using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping ... " The plot was never carried out and the prince returned home safely.

Prince Harry was previously awarded the prize for Best Co-Pilot Gunner in February 2012 and qualified as Apache Aircraft Commander in July 2013. He will remain a Commissioned Officer in the Household Cavalry.
