Prince Philip has undoubtedly led a remarkable life; he’s also held a number of important posts since becoming husband to Queen Elizabeth II. Perhaps due to his advanced age, though, the 96-year-old royal is gradually passing on his official responsibilities. And, as it turns, out, one of Philip’s most notable roles has gone to Prince Harry.
That particular position, in fact, is one that Philip may very well have treasured, given his own history of service in the British Royal Navy. Back before he wed Elizabeth, he was even considered to be the best cadet on his course at the Royal Naval College in Greenwich, U.K. And when World War II broke out, he duly went into action to serve his country.
