After spending the last three and a half years working as an RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot, it has been revealed that Prince William has landed a brand new role in the army as a member of the Household Cavalry's elite Mounted Regiment.

Having just welcomed his son, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, into the world, Prince William is said to be joining the cavalry regiment at some point in September, giving him time to take his two weeks' paternity leave and then finish his service in the RAF.

At that point in time, it is expected that the new dad and wife Kate Middleton will have moved back into their newly renovated apartment in Kensington Palace, after spending their first few weeks with Prince George at Kate's parents' home in Bucklebury, and potentially some time at Anmer Hall, a country mansion on the Queen's private Sandringham estate.

ARE KATE MIDDLETON, PRINCE WILLIAM AND PRINCE GEORGE SET TO MOVE TO THE COUNTRY?

The career move means that Prince William will be rejoining his old regiment, the Blues and Royals, who are based in Hyde Park, London, where he can be close to new mum Kate and Prince George, the third heir to the throne.
