Prince Harry to take over from Prince Philip as Head of the Royal Marines

Prince Harry is expected to replace his grandfather The Duke of Edinburgh as Head of the Royal Marines when he retires later this year. Prince Philip has been Head of the Royal Marines since 1953 and has made regular visits to the Marines on exercise in Norway and at the headquarters of 3 Commando Brigade in Plymouth.

Major General Rob Magowan, the Commandant General of the Corps, has approved the offer of the role but The Queen has the final decision.

Two years ago, the Prince stepped in for his grandfather at the opening ceremony of a new amphibious centre for the Royal Marines, 1 Assault Group in Plymouth.
