If Prince Harry Has His Way, Prince George & Princess Charlotte Will Be Wearing Combat Boots Not Crowns

As far as uncles go, doesn't seem like it gets much better than Prince Harry. The guy's funny, charming, and clearly a good time. Apparently, though, Prince William's younger brother also has high expectations when it comes to his niece and nephew. During a recent interview, Prince Harry revealed that he'd love to see Prince George and Princess Charlotte join the Armed Forces. No pressure there!

"I would definitely encourage George, and Charlotte if she wants to, to have some sort of involvement in the Armed Forces, guaranteed," Harry told the Sunday Times. "And I know that William and Catherine would probably echo that as well, depending on the situation for them in those years to come." However, Harry, who just finished his training in Australia and is touring New Zealand, realizes that such a decision is a deeply personal one.

"It’s done no harm, just good, for me, and I know it’s the same for William," the prince said. But he was sure to add, "It’s hard to say anything else on that because, as a parent, it’s your choice."

 
Like Harry said, the decision to join the army is decision for both George and Charlotte (and William and Kate) to make on their own, so not sure he's the person they should go to for advice. However, one thing they can look to their uncle for is tips for living life in the spotlight. "As an uncle, you know, I would say enjoy the role, because at first it’s just pressure, pressure, pressure," he said. "Just enjoy it and make the most of it. If you’re going to be doing it and you’re having an effect on so many people then, if you smile, they’re smiling -- and what’s the point of doing such a unique job without enjoying it?"
 
Perfectly-said! And I mean if anyone knows a thing or to about "making the most" of being a royal, it's certainly Prince Harry. Good advice, Uncle!
 
What do you think of Harry's advice?
