Prince Harry will take on his grandfather's role as head of the Royal Marines

And Harry, 32, will replace Prince Philip, 95, as Captain General when he stands down from public duties.
Philip announced last week he will no longer carry out his public duties, during an emergency meeting at Buckingham Palace.
Prince Harry’s new role will include regular visits to the marines on exercise in Norway and at the headquarters of Commando Brigade in Plymouth. The offer of the role has apparently already been approved by the office of Major General Rob Magowan, the Commandant General of the Corps.

A source told The Mirror: "The invite if acceptable is for Prince Harry to step into uniform and support his grandfather and eventually take over as Captain General." Prince William's brother stepped in for his grandfather at the opening ceremony of a new amphibious centre for the Royal Marines Assault Group in Plymouth two years ago.

His grandad announced he would be stepping down from royal duties on May 4. The Duke of Edinburgh will be attending scheduled appearances until Autumn, but will retire from more public engagements.
