Prince William Will Start Reconnaissance-Training Course

Prince William will start an armored reconnaissance-training course, where he will learn to be a troop leader like his brother Prince Harry.


Prince William has graduated from Sandhurst last December. He will start a four-and-a-half month program at Bovington Camp in Dorset. He will also take charge of approximately a dozen soldiers equipped with four Scimitar armored reconnaissance vehicles.

The prince will spend six weeks at Lulworth for gunnery training on live firing ranges and the course will end at Warminster. His training includes field activities such as tactics and learning to command soldiers in various simulated operational settings, and administering and training the troop in barracks. He is planning familiarization attachments with the Navy and RAF to prepare him for his future role as King and head of the Armed Forces.
