Britain's Prince Harry wants military service to return. This is when young people spend a year or two in the army before working or going to university. In Britain, compulsory military service ended in 1960. Many countries around the world still have it. Prince Harry spent 10 years in Britain's army. He said it helped him a lot. He said the army did "amazing things" for him. He said it, "does keep you out of trouble" and that, "different people do it for different reasons". He added: "I've had an epic ten years. I've had great fun. The Army keep giving me great jobs."

Prince Harry would encourage his niece and nephew to join the army when they grow up. He said: "I would definitely encourage George and Charlotte…to have some sort of involvement in the Armed Forces." He said it was a great way of helping people and making them stronger for life. Harry spoke about the effect of military service on his life. He said: "It's done no harm, just good, for me….I would say enjoy the role, because at first it's just pressure…It's like any job - you've got to learn how to do it." Prince Harry will work in Africa from now on conservation projects.
