LONDON, June 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
For a while, it looked like Britain's 'spare heir' was a party-loving, playboy Prince who cared more about having fun than taking life seriously.
Then, ten years ago, he joined the Army, and he's since credited the move with 'keeping him out of trouble'. But what should he do next? How2Become.com, the leading careers advice service, asked 900 Britons a selection of questions about Prince Harry, including what career role they'd like to see him embarking on after leaving Army life.
Nearly half of us (44.1%) think he should focus on his charity work, particularly since he has achieved so much with his very personal project, Sentebale, which he founded in 2006 with the Prince of Lesotho. Following very much in the footsteps of his late mother, Diana, former Princess of Wales, Harry wanted to give something back after spending his gap year in the southern African country. Commitment to a cause and a desire to help people are obviously two qualities Prince Harry learned from his time serving in the Armed Forces.
And while nearly a third of us think he should stay doing that role, he's obviously had a significant effect on young people through what he's achieved. Almost two thirds of us (63.7%) believe that his decade in the army has been inspirational to younger people, giving them someone to look up to.
Prince Harry also recently said that he believed the UK should bring back National Service, which was widely believed to instil good values within young people until it ended in 1960. He's quoted as saying: "I dread to think where I'd be without the Army. Bring back National Service - I've said that before," and nearly half of the British public (49.1%) agree with him. How2become.com founder Richard McMunn echoes Prince Harry's sentiments, saying: "Young people could learn an awful lot by undergoing compulsory National Service; respect for others, pride in themselves and their country, teamwork, discipline and self-sacrifice." Whatever happens next to Prince Harry, it's clear he has the support of the British public behind him.
