King Charles III Gives NEW Title To Prince William

There will be some questions about Prince William’s new title.

Even though Prince Harry was the one who served with the Army Air Corps in Afghanistan, King Charles III declared earlier this week that his eldest son would become the Colonel-in-Chief of the organization.

According to The Independent, Harry would have taken over his father’s 31-year-old position if he had not resigned from his royal duties.

William and Harry are both qualified military pilots, but during Harry’s second deployment in Afghanistan, he was assigned to the Army Air Corps.

William served as a search and rescue pilot and then an air ambulance pilot in the military, but he did not participate in any actual combat missions.

“His Majesty the King will officially hand over the role of Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. In August 2023, following His Majesty’s Accession, the King was pleased to announce military appointments including that the Prince of Wales would become Colonel-in-Chief of the Army Air Corps. The role was previously held by His Majesty the King, as Prince of Wales, for 31 years,” Kensington Palace said in a statement.

The news was released on the same day that Harry traveled to the UK to commemorate the Invictus Games’ tenth anniversary.

Following a great deal of conjecture, a duke’s representative verified that Harry would not be seeing his father because of the king’s “full programme.”

“The duke, of course, is understanding of his father’s diary of commitments and various other priorities and hopes to see him soon.”

When Harry learned of King Charles’ cancer diagnosis in February, he reportedly traveled quickly to the UK to be by his father’s side for 45 minutes. That was the last time the two saw each other.

Do you believe Harry would have gotten the role if he hadn’t resigned?
