LATEST: British royal Prince Harry has been cleared of cheating in a vital art exam and is now free to pursue his British Army career.

The prince's former art teacher SARAH FORSYTH's claims that she secretly did most of the exam for him have been thrown out by British exam board EDEXCEL.

Forsyth secretly recorded a conversation with the 20-year-old royal which she claimed proved that he had cheated. However, when played in front of a tribunal to challenge the non renewal of her lucrative contract at public school Eton, most of the dialogue was inaudible.

The exam board said there was no evidence of cheating and the prince went as far to sign an affidavit declaring that his exam was all his own work.
