Prince Harry's A-level results
Prince Harry studied at Eton
Prince Harry has got his A-level results, along with hundreds of thousands of other teenagers.

He got a B in art and a D in geography in the exams, St James's Palace said.

Prince Harry studied at Eton College. He dropped a third subject - history of art after his AS exams last year.

He plans to apply for Sandhurst military college after taking a gap year.

His brother, Prince William, passed three A-levels before going on to St Andrews university to study history of art.

Prince William got an A grade in geography, a B in history of art and a C in biology.

Charles proud

The Prince of Wales praised Harry's achievement, saying he had worked hard for his results.

He said: "I am very proud of Harry.

"He has worked hard for these examinations and I am very pleased with today's results."

St James's Palace said: "By achieving two A-level passes, Prince Harry is able to continue pursuing his wish for a future career in the Army.

"Prince Harry distinguished himself at Eton in the school's combined cadet corps and was promoted to the highest rank of cadet officer in May 2003.

"In the same month, he led a detachment of 48 cadets as parade commander in the Eton Tattoo.

"Prince Harry is currently making final preparations for his gap year, further details of which will be made available next month."
