excellent. No chance of his going to a Cressida related event for a time. He could meet someone in Australia.

Prince Harry goes on patrol Down Under: Fantastic photographs show the royal getting to grips with a chopper, stalking through the jungle... and even paying a surprise visit to some children

    Prince Harry visited one of the most remote areas in the world as part of his tour with the Australian Army
    Captain Wales spent time with locals in the Wuggubun community, some 600 miles from Darwin, the nearest city
    Locals who were thrilled to spend time with Harry said he just 'rocked up' and that he is a 'delightful chap'
    30-year-old has been in Australia since Monday and will stay for a month before retiring from the British Army

Why do you really think Harry is retiring from the military?

His letter shew he was rather reluctant to leave his friends or colleagues. I think the BRF can no longer afford Prince Harry 'buried' in the army and not available for engagements or royal work. From now on his main work will be for the Firm and not for the army. Yet, he moves to Down Under, not London. So this transition is a long-term one : Harry is called to lead a big part for a long time.
Harry may also leave on his own because his career is not progressing, he needs change or is fed up with not working with females !

As for me, I think lots of things are happening behind closed doors, between the Middletons (including William !) and the BRF. I may be mistaken, but I don't think it is a coincidence that Harry quits army when :
- the staff leaves Anmer Hall to join the Queen,
- Charles complains he doesn't see his grandson,
- an article about Carole managing the couple (no, not the house !)
- Pippa must give up her American work,
- the Middletons launch a new PR campaign (following Pippa when she runs, sending the message 'we are better than Uncle Gary', etc.),
- foremost the Saint-Paul's commemoration (Kate not curtseying to the Queen, not answering to Sophie, William not helping her, bizarre conversation topic, etc.)

But if it was only a divorce matter, what Harry should have to do with that ? I guess the BRF is not too pleased with William either.
Moreover, as for me, Harry moves to Australia because :
- it pleases him to travel
- the BRF agrees to the idea so that he doesn't have to deal with the Middletons or even William while things are being settled.

^ I'm sorry, you're right. Harry spends spring Down Under, summer in Africa, and then he moves back to the UK.  sorry

Which removes my part about living Down Under ! But I'm still convinced he leaves the army because the BRF needs him.

Top brass echo Harry's call to bring back National Service: Former Army chiefs say reintroduction would 'benefit' the country

    Prince Harry, 30, said a decade in the Army had kept him 'out of trouble'
    He believes Britain should bring back compulsory call-ups to the military
    His call for a return of National Service is backed by former military bosses
    Scheme was abolished in 1960 but last conscripts did not finish until 1963


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3085652/Top-brass-echo-Harry-s-call-bring-National-Service-Former-Army-chiefs-say-reintroduction-benefit-country.html#ixzz3aRjiIW4e

You know, I don't think Harry went into the military to serve, so much as get parenting he didn't get as a kid; it sounds like he viewed his superior officers as parent figures and not as military superiors experienced in warfare. Compulsory military service works if the participants want to fight, but as evidenced by Vietnam and all the wars since, the problem is that governments are getting troops into one mess after another, often having nothing to do with defending the country.

Australian taxpayers will be billed an estimated $115,000 for Prince Harry's month-long army secondment – including $1000 for bottled water and Gatorade.

The 30-year-old barely appeared in public during his stay in Australia from April 6 to May 9, but the public is still expected to foot the bill.

While Defence has not yet tallied the total cost of the stay, Fairfax Media has obtained documents containing the army's preliminary cost estimates.

Prince Harry made only one public appearance during his visit to Australia

Wouldn´t be too happy if I was an Australian tax payer.

it's not that much for an entire month. and especially since $75K of them were for emergency evacuation preparedness. so, in reality his expenses are like 30K, or a thousand per day. and that includes the RPOs and the plane tickets back and forth.

The bottled water and Gatorade seems a mite overblown and nitpicky, to me.  He'd have to drink about 3 gallons a day in US terms.

ANYway, compared to the Cambridge's visit and all the events and good will he did, it's peanuts.  If that includes travel, lodging and RPOs it's really nothing, isn't it?  Seems very reasonable.

RPOs are paid for by the British taxpayers so their costs aren't included.

He was only in public for two days - and did no official events in Australia. The CC records no royal doing anything on the day of his arrival and the day he was welcomed in Sydney at the end has many other royals undertaking duties that day but nothing for Harry.

The official part of his tour was in NZ while Australia was a private visit - more like his gap year travels but assigned to the military instead of a cattle station.

^^OH!  That expenditure ($150k)  is for two days?  I completely missed that one.  Ok, not good.  I thought that was for the 30+ days.

This is without the cost of his RPO´s etc, and possibly flights.

But the biggest line item is $75,940 for "AME", which is believed to refer to Aero-Medical Evacuation aircraft that were on standby but never used.
