||Many Sandhurst graduates warned that Harry was in for a shock when he began officer training at the prestigious academy. The first five-weeks are said to be the most challenging, with 5.30am starts every day and long hours spent learning platoon attacks and negotiating the institution's unforgiving assault course. But with the exception of a few medical hiccups which required trips to the sick bay, the Prince seems to have handled the challenges of military life with relative ease.
Sources close to Clarence House have expressed hope that Harry's time at Sandhurst will mark a turning point in his life. His decision to postpone his summer holiday in order to complete a tough scuba diving course hinted that the fun-loving royal may be developing a more serious side to his character. Which regiment the cadet might join after graduating from the academy remains to be seen, though he has been linked to the Household Cavalry's Blues and Royals, which has seen action in Bosnia, Kosovo and Iraq.
