Before Prince William had graduated from The University of St Andrews, he had applied for army officer training at the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst, Berkshire as an Officer Cadet.
Prince William was commissioned as an army officer and joined the Household Cavalry as a Second Lieutenant. Prince William then went on to receive his RAF wings from his father after completing an intense 12-week flying training course.
Prince William is currently training to become a search and rescue Pilot with the RAF Valley’s mountain rescue team in Anglesey. He has already completed his advanced helicopter flying training and has almost completed his Search and Rescue Conversion Course.
