Prince William - Prince William returning to army

Britain's Prince William is to rejoin the army.

The 31-year-old royal has been working as a search-and-rescue pilot for the RAF in Anglesey, Wales but his tour of duty ends in September and he is planning the military move so he and wife Duchess Catherine and their baby son Prince George - who was born last Monday (22.07.13) - can be based in London.

William will rejoin his former regiment the Blues and Royals as a captain in the Household Cavalry's Mounted Regiment, where his duties will include a role in mounted ceremonial parades, inspecting soldiers before they go on duty and drafting career reports for troops within his squadron.

The division, which is based in Knightsbridge, west London, do not get sent on tours abroad.

An army source told the Sunday Express newspaper: ''Our understanding is that he will finish with the RAF have some leave that is due and then return to the Blues and Royals and serve with the Mounted Regiment, where he will take an appointment as second in command of a squadron. It is not a difficult role but it requires a lot of attention to detail.''

A royal spokesperson refused to confirm the claims, saying only: ''We will make a statement about the prince's future role in due course.''
