Prince Harry ups Army rank to join William

Monday January 11, 2010

Prince Harry is set to become an Army captain - making him the equivalent rank of older brother William.

The 25-year-old's promotion has come a year earlier than usual because of his frontline service in Afghanistan.

Harry's new role, which he is expected to be fulfilling by May, sees his salary increasing to £44,000.

He is currently training to fly helicopters in Hampshire.
